So I have a qt17 with the kt17 engine. I finally got it to run but I'm not getting gas from the tank to the engine. I replaced the filter and that didn't work. Now when I took the filter off, the gas in the tank was only trickling out. The shut off valve was seized but seemed to be open. Other then getting new gas lines and a shut off valve. Where should I start?

Drain your tank and remove the shut off valve. There is a good chance that there is a fine screen attached to the top of the valve so be careful when taking the valve out of the tank. This screen may be plugged. It is also possible the valve it's self is not opening all the way. When you take the fuel line loose from the valve take it loose from the fuel filter and blow some air through the line and make sure it isn't plugged.
