Post Stator Replacement Fuel Problem

Hi all.

I just finished the task of replacing my stator only to have a fuel problem. I'm happy to say that she starts like a champ, but runs very rough and dies when the petcock is in the vertical/run position.

Just for fun, I moved the petcock to the "off" position and the engine runs fine - for a while. I can duplicate the rough run and stall each time I move the petcock to vertical.

Any ideas?

I have a "94 with 35k miles.

Did you try reserve? How does it run there?
Sounds like you may have crud in the petcock valve. You'll probably have to remove the petcock and clean it out.

The problem turned out to be a small vacuum leak to the valve. enough vacuum that the fuel was not fully shut off, but bad enough to make her run like crap. replaced the vacuum line and it runs like a champ! There was no residue in the gas tank fuel strainers.
