heeh hallo trob6...

I'll be damned haahhaahh I could have bet it was properly written :)

in fluid dynamics, when you loose the fluid while sucking (sorry, but that's the way it is ) from a lower source (or a heght/pressure diferential) you can do it only until a certain height :) it's very simple, after that the fluid column brake for liquid film rupture, breaks (wrong wovel there, forgive my Klatchian {Terry Pratchett docet})

in the situation where a vacum pump designed only to PUSH a liquid at very low pressure is erquired also to pull it from a lower level, since the pump it self was not designed to do to, you may risk fuel starvation

all such pumps should be supplied by gravity with fuel aplenty in order to work at full power.... it can also work but should not, the design is not the correct one :)

where ther is problem in the installation, you end up with a "train" of pumps, the first, usually below the tank or in-line but level will supply the main pump to deliver to the carbs.

you can check the various bike design and find such pumps always below the pump :)

hope this time my broken english was better

you may also want to install a prefilter in order to prevent the pump tu suck up too much dirt and be damaged by FOD
