Fuel Line

Recommended Posts

I woke up around 2:00 to the smell of gasoline, figured it was on my hands or clothes still after working on my trooper all day, but couldn't really smell it on my hands, so I went down stair to see if it was in the garage, opened the door and the smell about knocked me over. There was gas puddled all over the floor and you could see where it had been but dried up. After I got the doors all open, I started looking for the cause and first look at the fuel tank and it was easy to see, my fuel line had broke, bad part is I had filled the tank to the brim the day before, so all 8 gallon had drained out. Could have been disastrous!!!! It's fixed now and when you look at the photo, you'll notice that the hose is polyurethane tubing, ether style if I remember correctly. I have had other pieces of it go weird also, but this is the first problem it has created. I used to think this stuff was really neat stuff, not now!!!!

My recommendation is that if you're using it. Get rid of it, I have got rid of all of mine yet, but I don't have any below the top of the gas tank.

I will keep an eye on mine-- thanks!

I was reading my Wildcat service manual the other day. It recommends the fuel lines be replaced every 2 years. Considering the bad Chinese rubber we know is on our troopers I may be doing a fuel line replacement soon.

The rubber lines seem to be fine for many years (IMHO) and I thought the tygon tubing was going to be great because you can see through it. The line that broke is still soft and flexible, just broken now.

Polyethylene tubing is fine. Its more of a translucent milk color and you can still see thru it.

      Hey guys just bought a 07 trooper. Previous owner stated it ran great etc prior to clutch job then had issues. I drained tank, replaced plugs etc. found one of the injectors connectors was not connected and plugged it in. Solid 50psi fuel pressure.  It starts easier than previously on 3 cylinders but still runs very very poorly. I’m thinking the sound I’m hearing is it detonating at around 3k. It kinda sputters and falls apart. Sounds like clicking or something when it happens. I am at a bit of a loss, compression is a solid 150psi across the board with no movement. Verified spark and now am assuming all injector are functioning more or less correct as if I unplug any one it sound terrible at idle. 
       
      A note, I tapped plugs at .7 manual called for .9-1.1 but that seems super over doing it but I will try adjusting them to 1.0
      additionally I’ve noticed the fan in rear doesn’t turn on. 
       
      anyone with any help I will be in your debt.

      Ok I acquired some used HS700 doors from an ATV wrecker and it appears they have either lost or sold the metal mounting plate that attaches to the frame.
      I am going to need to fabricate something to attach the doors...if someone could take some detailed pictures of their door mounts and post them in this thread I would really appreciate it.
       
      Thanks

      I just bought a 2019  MSU 400 w/ 700 miles.  I got it home yesterday and noticed a faint rubber burning smell.  I can't track it down.  I'm on dirt so its not tires and pavement.  Parking brake is off.  Temp on the machine appears fine.  Thx for any suggestions   I thought maybe belt but I'm not racing nor going but a mile or two.
