Default Jett bubbleless tank

Hi. I got a 4 0z bubbleless tank for my .35 Jett.

I followed the directions, but if I go full throttle, the engine dies.

The tank came with two colored fuel lines.

Blue line come out of the center of tank cap.
Clear line comes out of the front-bottom of the tank.

I used the clear line to fuel the tank and attached it to my needle valve. I used the blue for the muffler.

Any tips on getting this to work?

i probably have a couple dozen of Dub's tanks.
color of the lines doesn't neccesarliy mean you have them hooked up right. the line in the center of the tank goes to the bladder and should be the one you hook up to the fuel line. the other line that goes through the plastic part of the tank is the muffler pressure line.
you have to make sure that the line that goes to the needle is the one that fills the bladder inside the tank.
what you described is that you are filling up the tank on the outside of the bladder.
or something is off on your misture adjustment.
double check that you are using the proper line to fill and connect to the liner inside the tank.

Sounds like I may have done that. So would it be the line that comes out of the center of the tank cap for fueling?

yes, i just edited my post to explain things better.
the center line is always the pickup line on these tanks.

Thanks for helping....... was AFK all weekend...


The center tube from the cap is indeed the fuel line. The tube into the enclosure is the pressure line.

As you experienced, they are not interchangeable.

Hi summerwind:

I have had a jett 35 for many years, maby 10 and still my favorite engine of all time. I use the 6 oz tank whereever it can be stuffed in. To work with these tanks, invest with the J ett "tanker", will save you all sorts of grief. Firstd suck all the air out of the tank from the side vent and then fill with fuel from the center. Put a clamp on the center line so it does not flood the crank. Open up the carb wfo per dub jett and have someone pull the clamp just as you are turning over. She should catch right off. Any time that engine does not transition snappy or idle way down there, something in your tank or adjustment is off. With a 40" cut down quickee wing and streemlinned cowel, this little guy dominated our club open class for years. Recently went electric as am getting old and slower. I kept the Jett 35 as just could not get rid of her. Enjoy the engine, with care will last you a lifetime.

Yes indeed, I was fueling the pressure line. I used the center line and it worked.
