My Husky 610 died on me in the middle of nowhere. Long story short, it's now in my garage.
The problem is that the fuel pump wasn't running. After lots of troubleshooting and price checking ( new fuel pump $ 580 online) i pulled the tank and fuel pump assembly. The in-line filter was so clogged that the pump was not running.
Here is the dirty fuel that was in the pump.
It almost looks like oil or something got in there.
Here is the dirty filter and what it looked like inside.
It almost looks like an oil filter!!
I unclogged the pump with some fuel injector cleaner and installed a new filter from NAPA. Ahhh so fresh and so clean!
All this goes inside the fuel tank and it's really pretty simple. I can't believe they wanted $600 ($686 at the dealer) for a new pump.
The moral of the story: check your fuel filter once in a while
The pump will go back in the bike tomorrow and it should run like new. I'm racking my brain as to how it got this dirty. Could that be just from the fuel? I maintain my bike pretty well, and I don't know how it got that clogged.
