Hey all,

This past weekend I tried to fire up my new used 65 cuda. It fired up with starter fluid but that was it. I pulled the gas tank and it was pretty bad. Also pulled the fuel filter. I have a new tank and filter ready to go in this weekend. Question is, is it okay to blow compressed air from the tank end of the fuel line to make sure it's clear or will that damage the pump. Also any suggestions on priming the line when I get everything hooked back up??

Thanks

Just disconnect the pump end of the line and I'm sure you'll be OK blowing it out.

Just crank the engine when its all back together...fuel pump will prime itself eventually (30 secs or so)
