Default fuel not pumping in tornado bb

My engine doesn't seem to be pumping nitro into the engine. I tried to prime the engine by plugging the exhaust and turning the engine over but no fuel is moving through the fuel lines. Anyone have an idea what is wrong?

You might have a leak in your tank, maybe a crack or the lid isnt sealing correctly. Or maybe a hole in your fuel like. Take the fuel line off the exhaust, and blow into it and see if you can find out where the air is leaking from.

I'll check it out. But I don't think it's a leak. What else could it be. Could it be something in the motor? I haven't used my nitro in about 4 months. Just put it in storage in my room.

The only way its the motor is if there was still fuel in the carb and it gummed up. You could clean out your carb.
