Triumph TR6 - car will not start
|i have a 71 tr6 that will not start i have already replace the nedeles for the floats and fuel pump and blow out the line in the engine compartment so i think that there is something wrong with my fuel sending unit or that my fuel lines from the tank to the fuel pump are cloged, i came to this conclusion cause the car will start and run for about 10 seconds if you put fuel from a cantainer straight in to the carbs, i really have no clue i will probably be takeing to the mechanics with in 2 weeks i just wanted to see if i could fix it myself|
|My guess is your car has not run for a year or so and the fuel in the tank has gone stale. I've had this problem on a couple of occasions and solved it by adding a gallon or two of fresh petrol to the tank and cranking the engine until the new fuel filled the carbs. It can be a very puzzling fault!|
