Fuel vent cleaning

Postby Washopay » August 27th, 2015, 10:45 pm

I've isolated a problem with my Genny to a plugged or partially plugged fuel tank vent (runs fine when the filler cap is off - struggles and stalls when it is in place.

Any suggestions on how to clean out the vent line? A friend suggested using a Shop-Vac attached to the fitting on the hull. Uh... I think no.

Disconnect at the tank and BLOW?

Thanks in advance.

Compressed air would be the easiest.
