Re: Fuel Spewage on Headers
When this started, what was the green hose connected to up front? Was the fuel coming from somewhere in the engine compartment or the tank itself? Is the carb vapor line also plugged up, usually with a stick or bolt? Is there still a fuel return line to the tank?
Having a little trouble picturing the situation. If the green tube, from the tank wasn't connected to anything up front, and plugged, then the fuel is coming from the tank. It should just be a vapor line, usually connected to the cannister. The tank end, of the greeen line, should just collect expansion vapors and send them to the canister.
There is a rollover check valve, i can't recall where and don't have a manual with me. As for the suction sound from the gas cap, some vehicles do and some don't, depending on how the cap and tank is designed. i don't recall either of my CJs making such a noise after being run for a while. Ask around though.
Let me know if i sound like i'm picturing this right. Any other details may help.
