You can only SEE fuel flow into the sediment bowl if the sediment bowl is empty (and all the other conditions previously mentioned) and then only for as long as it takes to fill the sediment bowl. After that you might see a little swirling in the sediment bowl but I don't think that would really tell me much about flow.Eoghan wrote:bythepond88 wrote:The sediment bowl is not the best place to check for fuel flow. If the system is tight, and the float is seating properly, air in the line between the bowl and the carb will prevent the fuel from flowing freely.
you're right, if the float valve is closed the fuel won't go anywhere. However, if you've drained the carb to remove debris as i said, the valve will then be open, allowing you to view (through the sediment bowl) the actual speed at which the fuel is flowing out of the tank under sealed conditions.
