Dry Fuel Filter - WTF?

Rhino won't start.
Fuel filter looked dirty so I cleaned it...but it was also dry.
Put new filter on. Turn the engine over, the new filter isn't drawing any fuel.
For shits and giggles, I could easily suck fuel up through the fuel filter ,so there's no clog.

Checked the plug - definitly got spark.
Definitely got vacuum coming off the intake tract.

Took the fuel pump off, pretty simple device.
What could possibly go wrong?

At any rate, I assume I need a fuel pump.
How do these things fail? Seems like such a simple device...?

It has an extra tube on it an I have no idea what plugs into it...and the mounting holes are different.

My tune is for a stock pump (not sure if it matters), if I could just trade straight across/break even for a stocker it would be easier.

I have to get this put on today and don't have a lot of time to muck with it.

It has two outlets, you simply block off the second outlet. The mounting is slightly different and I have only one bolt holding mine in at the top, if I remember right, and it works like a champ. I don't think it would make a difference, as far as the way your motor is tuned... ?

TOAST NO MORE

Longest downtime record has been set!

u can blow into the 1 line that goes into the frame u take of breather or just start it with starting fluid it will fire right up and will prime the system ..

they say a rag stuffed in the intake side of carb will work but we tried it and it didnt work or it took forever just use a lil gas or starting fluid and start it and it with that and it will prime itself and fill up and u will be good to go ...


the full pump u have is 100% perfect , u will only use 1 bolt hole to mount it

and u will cap one end off or run both lines to a T then 1 line to carb ...

Tried blowing thru it...20 psi of air thru it...putting gas in it to prime it...nothing revived the dead pump. Nothing would flow thru it.
