Fuel Pump Breather Tube Routing?


Recommended Posts



I have an 88 K75s. I'm having trouble getting her started. Spark looks strong, engine is turning over. Plugs smell of gas when I pull them, but I'm not sure how much fuel is getting to the rail. Problem started when I tried to start her when she was very low on gas. I've since added 2 gallons. I'm going to try replacing the filter in case it's gummed up, but in looking at the hose routing I noticed that the breather hose from the fuel pump was just laying accross the bottom of the tank. Is that where it's supposed to be?

There is no 'breather' hose from your fuel pump. There is an inlet and an oulet. The inlet has a fine mesh filter 'sock' attached and the outlet goes directly to the filter. There is a hose attached to this fine mesh filter. It should loop around to the 'other' side of the tank to allow the pump to suck all the available fuel.


This is a pretty good picture.


You should also have a rain drain hose on the bottom of the tank and a vent hose also on the bottom of the tank.

Mick, thanks. I replaced the filter yesterday & after a few cranks and a twist, she started right up! Must've sucked in some sludge when I ran her dry--never doing that again. Totally back to normal now.
