Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
If it is a horizontal shaft engine as I suspect since it sounds like it is mounted on a power washer then yes it does have a fuel pump that is mounted behind the fuel tank normally. If it is not there then it will be mounted onto the air filter base assembly on the carburetor side of the engine. It sounds like the carburetor jets may be stopped up though since you can pour fuel into the carburetor throat and it will start and run until it burns that out. I would suspect carburetor blockage rather than fuel pump issue at this point.
Unfortunately, on this engine no. The way that everything is mounted you can't get to the jets easily without removing the carburetor. I wish there were however because it would save a lot of time.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
