Cool Re: Golf cart fueling issues

Could a new fuel pump be bad? Yes! Install a marine primer bulb between the fuel tank and the fuel pump. Pump the bulb until the carb is full of fuel and start the engine and see if it stays running without pumping the primer bulb. If it does, then it was probably vapor locked. If it doesn't, then make sure the pump is actually pumping fuel to the carb. If it is, then take the float bowl off the carb and look for pluggage. If the pump is not pumping then make sure the pick up tube in the tank is not cracked above the fuel level. If all of those things check out good and it will only stay running if you keep pumping the primer bulb change the fuel pump again. Man, I'm confusing myself! Hope this helps. My 99 EZGO did the same thing last year. Would not pump fuel to the carb. I took the fuel pump apart and everything looked good. The fuel filter also looked good! It would not pump fuel through the fuel filter. I took the filter off and it ran fine without the filter. Go figure.

On our way back from Philly today we stopped at Bass Pro Shops and picked up a primer bulb. Installed, pumped and primed all the way to the carb. Still would not fire up. Disconnected the line from the pump to the carb and shot compressed air into the line a couple of times - thinking the seat and/or needle may have been stuck closed. Hooked everything back up, primed to the carb and it fired right up. Continued to run for a while to insure it was not just the fuel in the carb or line. Disconnected the primer bulb and hooked the lines back up conventionally and it fired back up and ran without issue. Let it set for a short time period, cleaned the battery terminals and cleaned up the tools. It fired up again and I loaded into the trailer. Seems as if it has been cured.

Darrin - Thanks for the primer bulb suggestion. Gotta love those Chevy II's...

Thanks again to all who provided suggestions. I hope this thread can help someone else who may have fueling issues in the future. I think I will keep the old fuel pump as a spare. I'm not 100% sure the pump was the issue.

Ronnie, Jr.
