Suzi DF6 fuel feed problem

Hi
This engine has only done 3-4 hours but is 2 years old. It is the aux.
The engine runs fine on the integral tank but wont run off the 13litre red tank.
using the pipe/connector supplied.

I have change the fuel valve (which switches from integral to remote) I have changed the remote tank (as the original one leaked). I have even tried having the remote tank high up.

The fuel line from tank to engine is 1m long and the priming thningy is always stiff.

Any pointers would be welcome
Thanks
Paul

stupid comment but the primer is the right way round ?

breather open

disconnect the pipe from the engine and push the ball in and see if fuel comes thru ok if it has a ball mechanism or whatever fuel stop mechanism used

check fuel comes thru the valve you replace to the carb side
