Running out of fuel with the Howell system
At the risk of sounding stupid, if the tank is empty will the fuel pump still only stay on for 2 seconds at start-up? I don't hear any real fluid moving and it won't start. I set the timing after a dizzy install and it ran great for a few minutes then started to struggle at higher RPMs. Once it died for good I can't start it. I figured the pump would keep running until it built up pressure.
