Re: Troubles with Bukh

We had a similar problem after cleaning a tank with an absorbant pad. Some of the fibers left behind collected in the valve at the tank and would partialy block the line causing fuel starvation and air intrusion through any fittings between the tank valve and the pump as a result of the lift pump suction.
