    At any given time my fuel line is about a quarter full at the bottom. Is this normal? I'm just trying to go through everything that seems wrong becasue my engine won't start. Thanks!

    Yes, the fuel line should be full of fuel. Disconnect the fuel line from the petcock and open the valve to see if you have flow. If not, remove the petcock and the little filter on it and remove any debris from the fuel tank. Alot of folks discard the little filter and install an in-line filter from the auto parts store. Hope this helps!

    I wonder about these, if the surface tension is keeping the bubbles from burping up.

    try this for a day, leave your fuel valve open overnight. Might let the bubbles out.

    Once out they may not return.
