The pump has two valves inside. One at the inlet and one at the outlet. If dirt keeps a valve open it will not function.

Snip a finger off of one of those gloves and put it on the outlet. It should inflate like a balloon.

In reply to # 1533353 by spurs1canada All is well,I took the supply hose off the bottom of filter,got the compressor and blew down the line,a few seconds later gas came out the supply line,reconnected filter and turned her over now has gas in the filter.
Thanks to all.

So freaking typical.... We tend to re-invent the wheel... when it's only a nail in the tire....

Doug,
While you are at it check the tail light fluid. Barry has fixed it.
All the best,
Paul

I know, it's one of those "while yer at it" deals.

I still see those white crystals clogging the orifice someone posted a while back in my sleep.
