Ive been having on and off again trouble with the gas line feed in my 27 since I topped off the tank in an out-of-the-way filling station on a tour last April. I finally got around to removing the shutoff valve/sediment bulb from the tank. The tank opening is packed with what looks/feels like chassis grease. Id like to flush it with something but am leery about using anything water based. All suggestions will be appreciated.
Problem solved. I taped a turkey baster snout onto the end of my shop vac hose. I watched it suck out a lot of grease followed by a good bit of debris which rattled as it went through the snout. I’m not planning to bother with flushing the tank as everything was working fine until I got that bad gas. Two other Ts got gas there and I heard that another one had fuel problems too.
You may have dodged a bullet. Gas fumes going into a shop vac could produce a pretty exciting adventure.
You said it Steve. You were darn Bob.
Yeah, Steve, I thought about that when I was considering vacuuming some tramp material out of the tank on my 26 touring. I chickened out.
