    hey guys just a question for y'all bout my engine on my plane..
    I'm working on restoring an old nitro RC plane and I'm doing pretty good (since Ive never worked on any kind of engines before) but today I tried to start it up and it seems to not be putting the fuel to the engine properly, the hoses are clear and I followed the steps I found online on how to prime and start one, but its just not pushing the fuel through the hoses. I think it may be an air leak somewhere but I cant be positive since I don't really know what I'm doing lol. I want to see if I can get the engine started before Christmas since I wanna show it working to the son of the original builder of the plane as a surprise.. do you guys know what may be causing this or any idea where I should start looking at to fix?

    please, any help you can give me would be awesome and very appreciated.

    Ill add a couple pics of the engine below
