Noticed that after the re-start attempt that fuel was flowing down into the secondary chambers but eventually stopped. Fuel was flowing in through the boosters. Any ideas as to what is going on? Stuck needle in the fuel bowl?
Also, referring to my original photo, the union between the red anodized fuel line fitting that screws into the bowl and the blue coupling are a compression style union, correct? As such, there is no gasket at this union, correct? Just want to confirm.
