Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Does the pulse line , from the crankcase have a pulse if you hold finger over it when you crank on engine? It powers the pump. If pulse is ok, take test line to the inlet of the pump and drop in fuel container, and crank, does fuel come out the discharge? If so, pump is good, and the suction system to the pump is suspect.
Did you see my response? I see question is still open.
