Fuel pump a pulse pump. It has three hoses to it. One is the Pulse line that goes to the crankcase or rocker cover for the power for the pump. Then you have the suction hose from the tank/filter side, and the third line goes to the carburetor. The pump is held on the engine by two screws, just remove the screws and pump is loose. What is Deere model number, your engine numbers are family, not model number of the engine.
