Hmmmmm – Going to check that because I believe i placed the diaphragm and then the gasket. I remember this as I though it odd but the diagram was clearly showing it in that order. Going to pay close attention this time. One I verify it, Ill reassemble and look to Rics suggestions.
BTW – should the fuel line be completely without air bubbles? I notice that I get what looks like solid fuel connecting in the line near the carb, but near the fuel tank, there seams to be a dry spot. I discounted it as there always seams to be fuel in the line where it counts.
