This heads-up is not the problem here, but I'll relate it while I am thinking of it.

We had a cable yarder that would lose power intermittently. We looked everywhere - filters, water seperator, lines, return loop - no air etc. Just a lack of fuel. We looked in the tank and could see the intake screen - clear of debris.

Problem persisted. Finally, we pulled the cleanout on the fuel tank to change the strainer. What we found was that someone had placed a Glad sandwich bag in the tank. The bag would float around and only cause a problem when over the intake. However, because it is clear, we could not see it when looking through the fuel.

It almost drove us nuts. Keep your tanks locked.
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.
