Hi Lars, my name is***** it is firing out of the carb as soon as you shift it that would not be a fuel pump issue.
How old is the gasoline? When was the last time it had a tune up? Has a compression test been done on the engine yet?
Hi, my name is Kerry
When you remove the old fuel pump, the rod that pushes on the fuel pump lever falls down.
It won't let you re-install the fuel pump until you lift it up.
The rod will be oily and therefore slippery, I wipe it with a rag and then I can push the rod up with my finger.
You need to quickly get the pump lever under the rod because it will fall back down.
Does this help?
I use a small screwdriver to hold the rod up while I get pump and gasket ready to slip into place.
