put it this way.. if you put your thumb over one end of the hose, the other end would BLAST off the pump nipple unless held with a hose clamp. Like.. FAST. with a clamp? you would never ever be able to hold you thumb over the hose. you would get a face full of fuel spray.
Yes, if you unsnapped the 2 halves of the fuel pump white plastic housing, there is an o-ring inside at the bottom of a narrow passage.
Ok, then definitely not pumping with enough pressure cuz my thumb stays right on it and definitely no spray to the face. Now, I took out the pump again, (I did originally unsnap the two halves, thats when that o ring u are talking about fell out). I took out the pump again just now to see if it was an issue with that o ring. The problem is I dunno exactly how its supposed to go in there... Do you have a pic of how its supposed to go? The narrow passage you are talking about is on the sending unit side, right? theres an o-ring and a small white plastic piece in there, kinda looks like a "T" with a hole going through it and its cylindrical in shape. I dunno if the o ring goes on the absolute bottom, if it goes between the "T" shaped thing or what. Im pretty sure that should be the reason why its not creating enough pressure. So, questions:
-Do you have pics to display how that o-ring goes inside the passage?
-Do you have pics that show where that "t" shaped piece goes in reference to the o-ring?
-Is there any other way I could increase the pressure by adjusting something?
-Do you think the o-ring being placed incorrectly is the reason why im not getting pressure.
Brother thanks for bearing with me here, you are a bike Doctor! I really appreciate the back and forth conversation... It has all been trial and error so far.
