Customer Question
Have replaced the fuel...

Have replaced the fuel pump on my ‘99 John Deere gt275 and still no gas passing through to carberator. Gas is getting to pump, but no suction/transfer through? And pressure from engine seems to be fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?

Original engine. And no. When spray starter fluid in carb does try and run, just can’t get gas to carb

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

remove the line from the pump to the carb and see if fuel comes out.

Double check the connection of the new pump also

Seem to be fine
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 2 months ago

only other thing it ould be is compression. you don't have the crankcase pressure or you have a collapsed fuel line. disconnect the line at the filter and see if fuel flows freely out
