Default 94 pt no fuel to I pump

Tommy the owner of my old 94pt is at a shop in North Carolina. Broke down. No fuel to the lift. Mechanic tried pushing fuel to the tank which works but gets a vacuum trying to suck out of the tank. I suspect a ply in the old line is flapping to close off flow. Ran a line to the fill and all is good.
Question.... what line should be replaced and how does it rout to the tank. I am in TX and Tommy and Darlene are in N C. Please post or give Tommy a call.

I talked to a tech at the shop where Tommy is,i did not get a great feeling from him.
Maybe they can figure it out.
they ran a line straight to the fuel tank and dropped it into the filler neck,they can get it to prime and run,but if they shut it down it will lose prime,needs a check valve.
They say the fuel pressure is low,the added a gauge to check pressure,maybe the fuel pump is weak?

Thanks Randy. He is headed to Romoland for warranty work. Is that check valve on the pickup or just at the pump valve? If it is on the pickup maybe he popped it off trying to backflush

The check valve should be on the inlet side of the Racor.

That is the problem with a tech that starts pulling at stuff before pulling docs. I fear Tommy will be paying the techs tuition while under that shade tree. More to the job of a properly working lift pump when a computer is depending on it for keeping the board cool. I lost a computer in a N14 when the return flo got muffed

I tried to talk to the tech about the check valve and the racor gauge line that has been known to cause problems.
It was like talking to a 3 YO.
He could only focus on what he had done,running a new fuel line along the floor and then into the fuel tank filler neck.
I asked why he did not drop the new line into a bucket of fuel close to the engine.
Hes going to replace the engine fuel pump,i asked him if he had an old electric fuel pump he could test with first.
Ohh well,Tommy says its a good shop,we will see.
