Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
You definitely have the wrong fuel pump on there.
But you still need to test it out.
Disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor, and run it into an empty container (you will need to attach a piece of rubber hose for the sets that have a steel fuel line).Unplug the tan wire from the pump.Jumper 12V directly to the pump.If it is pumping gas like this, the pump is good.If not, either the pump is bad, or the fuel line is bad.Remove the fuel supply line from the pump, and attach a length of fuel hose to it.Drop the other end of the hose into a gas can, and jump 12V to the pump again.If it still does not pump, the pump is bad.If it does pump, the fuel line is bad coming from the fuel tank – or you are low on gas.There must be at least ¼ tank of fuel for the genset to run.Let me know what you find..
There is no minimum set voltage listed for this, but usually about 10.5V is about as low as you want to go.
But I have seen several run on 9V.
The current part number for that fuel pump is A029F891.
