With the size of the Kraken tank, the fact that my tank is full and has stabilizer that changes the color of the fuel slightly, there is no way I would see anything on the bottom of the tank. I may try a extending magnet retrieval tool but to be honest, I think mine might be the TB. @JJG723 can you confirm on your Kraken if your TB butterfly cycles when you first turn on your key? Mine doesn't move and @Sam Am I says his does with the key turned to position 2.
First off, Sam am I, I think at this point you owe me dinner 😋😂.Yup esp since all is bone dry, agree......If the ECU is programmed as mine is, with adequate pressure, FI should have shot some fuel in, you have fuel to the filter and most likely into the TB, last stop FI or TB.
Else......Got fuel in the works, but is fuel pressure level okay? If the pump's humming is stopping? It then is pressuring up as you've said above, the fuel pressure sensor level then must be being met/detected and shutting the pump off, then pressure is most likely okay...(this also imples the intake screen is most likey clear as a plug on the intake of the pump wouldn't necessarily allow for proper pressure to develop on the output, guessing like 40psi within a few sec?(seems mine shuts off fairly fast). Thinking the pump s/would continue to run for extended periods as with slowed intake would come slowed shut off)
FWIW, if the fuel pressure sensor is working shutting off the pump as expected, then one part of the TB is still working because the fuel pressure sensor lives in the TB! If we then can say then the TB is alive, then it could be a stuck closed/dead FI?
Sry @system.....I derailed your question to @JJG723
@JJG723 Might your butterfly flip around at power up? Sounds personal.............
Here is a video I put in one of the other threads. I shot this last winter so it's not current (still haven't put the battery back on yet) but you can hear the butterfly cycle when I first put the key in the on position.
