79 enticer wont fire

i have a 1979 enticer 250 with a kihine carb on it. i had a friend rebuilt the fuel pump on the carb for me. and i got it put back on today and it wont suck gas through the fuel line. the gas is 2 inches away from the carb inside the line and when you pull it the gas will bounce up and down but wont suck into the carb. i had someone tell me that crank seals could cause this. could that be???

also i went a head and removed the oil resevour and i am mixing the gas my self could this have anything to do with it?

Is the pump working properly? Try disconnecting the fuel line from the carb and put the end into a container. Pull the rope a few times to see if any fuel comes out. You should get some every crank.

If you are getting fuel, the inlet needle/seat may be stuck shut, which doesn't allow any fuel into the float bowl. A good carb cleaning will solve that. The Keihin carbs have a few more parts than Mikunis but when I had Enticer 300's, I didn't have to buy kits to clean. Be careful not to tear any gaskets, especially the float bowl one.

I doubt mixing the oil has anything to do with your problem. JMHO
