Customer Question

Hi Curtis,
I have a Ranger 500 2002 series 10. To check out my pump, I have disconnected it from the carburetor..
It pumps when I hit brake and energize starter. But I would think the pump would keep running with the key in the on position and there is no back pressure on the pump.
