air in fuel when making right turn.

Just some research since I won't be able to take a real serious look at anything for a while.

When I make a hard right turn at low acceleration, I get a sudden increase in acceleration, just like air in the fuel. that is the only time it does it though. If I have to slow down after making the turn the idle is rough for a few secs then everything smooths out. It doesn't do it any other time. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. During daylight tomorrow I'm going to try and crank the wheel and see if I can see anything but until I can spend some time on it that's all I;ll really be able to do.

Any help appreciated

Thanks
Sean

Maybe your cab is shifting on the frame and pulling on the throttle cable

Single or dual tanks?

Sounds like it could be a rubber line that is a little too short or not routed properly that shifts when turning. My 'burb did something very similar. I found out yesterday the line from the barbed outlet to the lift pump input was just barely long enough when the truck was sitting on level ground and when it rocked it would tug a bit on it (a failed worm clamp didn't help matters either).

Single tank. But that's interesting. The cab is so rotted that i can feel it flexing when I go over bumps. The cab mounts on the DS are non existant. It does almost feel more like a pull on the throttle than air, although I do get the rough idle immediately after.

That's what I'm thinking.I redid the fuel line from LP to IP so nothing is routed properly. that was well over a year ago though. I'll take a look at all the clamps since I'll have some daylight to work with today and tomorrow.

Thanks

Does this only happen when the tank is below a certain level?

If so, it could be that the pickup tube has a hole in it due to rust.

Turn one way the fuel covers the hole, no apparent problems. Turnthe other way, no more fuel covering the hole, so the system sucks air.

That that would take time before you'd notice it at the IP. That air would have to go through all the lines, filter, hoses, IP etc, before you'd notice it.

I'm betting it's not that due to the second you turn you can feel/hear it.

I do have that problem but my tank has to be very close to empty anyhow, less than an 1/8th. so it's not really an issue except sometimes my fuel gauge lies to me.

huh? it's winter, it's always cold. It's only done it a few times. Day before yesterday for the first time -15c, yesterday same and again today a little warmer. interestingly today it happened while reversing down a hill out of a driveway. Again at low speed while just beginning to accelerate. I'm beginning to think it is the cab flexing and pulling on the throttle cable.

I ended up working today so I didn't have time to look at anything, may be tomorrow
