good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist

the rear tank will feed the motor, not the front tank. there is no way to make that happen. each tank when selected will provide fuel to the engine, not to each other

Expert:  roy replied 2 months ago.

sorry, I mis understood. I thought you wanted the back tank to fill the front tank from the way it was worded. my fault.

let me look up the fuel flow

Roy

Expert:  roy replied 2 months ago.

ok, the valve that controls the fuel flow from the tanks to the front is the issue. it has failed internally and instead of sending fuel to the engine, it is sending fuel to the front tank.

it is called a switching valve.
