Default Re: cleaned fuel bowl=no start?

The glass bowl is there only to filter debris. Certainly it could get by and clog a jet as debris are really small. I replaced the lines with copper and a new tank from a vendor. I get a few chips in the bowl. It's not coming from the copper lines. Hasn't effected my carb to my knowledge yet but I do clean out the bowl trap.

Put a small earth magnate on the bottom of the bowl till you figure it out maybe. Not sure if it will stick real well on the outside, but you could probably just throw it in the bowl. Not a lot of pressure that would suck it up to the top of the sediment bowl as it's just siphoning fuel. There is a screen anyway.
