hey got a weird fuel flow issue this morning, just wondering if anyone had any ideas?

After putting fuel in the tank, and taking off the clamp, the fuel did not flow into the carb, as it normally does. I checked the tubing, and replaced it, muffler in on tight and properly connected, glow plug checked and worked properly, able to blow into carb with air ( via fuel tubing), no obstruction noted. took out the motor and it seems fine, took off the carb and its clean, took out the needle valve with no discrepancies found, filter is clean with no visible issues. Bottom line is the engine is not pulling fuel in. any ideas?

Trex 600N with stock fuel tank (new tubing)
OS 50 Hyper w/ youngblood pipe.

I had a simular problem on mine and what it was, somehow when i fueled it up it created a vacuum inside the fuel tank how i dont know but it did. I had to pull the clunk line out of the tank and put it back together and it was fine after that. Its weird i know it has never happened again just that once but like lonewolf pull the clunk out of the tank and just check it, it cant hurt might solve your problem.

Trying not to put them in the dirt.

wow thanks, will try it. One more thing, at the field, when i pulled the line off the carb it flows, which rules out the cluck line and everything before the carb. Im gona pull the motor and clean the carb, and replace all the fuel lines, just in case, thanks for the help. V.

I would change fuel line inside tank. The other day my engine died do to fuel line falling off nipple inside tank. The line split and fell off . I would not trust fuel line supplied with kit. Was able to land ok no damage. Dave
