thanks for the site, I'll be sure to check it out.
UPDATE: i started goimg through the fuel lines again. starting at the tank and working my way to the carb. when i got to the fuel pump, i removed it and took it apart. one of the two valves inside the pump was literally floating around. im guessing this might be part of my problems if not all of my problems.
i will be ordering a new one very soon and let everyone know how it turns out. also i dont want to sound completely stupid but where is the anti siphon valve located on an 84 Craft. basically can i get to it or do i have to pull the gas tank out ect. thanks again everyone.
