Mine did that one time and the tube was just sludged up.
Looked in the tank and pulled the end of the tube up and it looks clear. It will oil good for about 4-5 minutes then quit???

Hey Mike,
Did as you suggested on the phone. Diesel fuel and a touch of gas. Ran for about 2-3 minutes with nothing coming out then she suddenly started to flow. Saw lots of little black pieces coming out. Ran it till no more showed (a good 10 min). Flushed the tank good with the diesel and put oil back in. Left just a tiny bit of fuel in there when I refilled with the bar oil.
Thanks for the help Sir.

PS - Colin DID NOT HELP :lol: :lol:

He was too busy fixin my truck :roll: :roll: The one I never get to drive anymore :lol: :lol: :lol:

That might. I like to run ATF in the engines a lil before an oil change.
