You could put a little oil in the pulse hose and crank the engine over, if there is any oil ejected from the hose, that would indicate pressure from the crankcase. I replaced the line and the problem was solved. Usually guys just do a basic hookup first and see if their carb suddenly starts flooding or running way too rich.

And you can buy a pressure regulator as well. The pumping diaphragm flaps curl up with use.

First thing we want to do is you want to make sure that the fuel pump is able to pull fuel through the inlet line. This is your inlet line, this line goes to fuel tank and then to your pump this is your pulse line this line connects from the crank case to pump and you got the outlet line which connects from the pump to carburetor.
Can I use that as my pulse? Fuel from the tank is piped to the inlet side of the pump, the pump has a diaphragm that is activated by vacuum or mechanical linkage, on vacuum pumps the it is either getting vacuum from the valve cover or on the oil dip stick, this forces the fuel to the carburetor. A fuel pump is used when the fuel tank is mounted lower than the carburetor and cannot rely on gravity to carry fuel through the fuel line. The inlet for the return pump will be about inch below the full line on the small tank. I have to ask tho. If it were mine, I would try it, but I would never offer that option to a customer, as it would be a potential fire hazard. I can blow through the fuel line, I even tried sucking the fuel to the carb, its there.
The engine on the mower had a vacuum line from the valve cover to a tiny fuel pump inline with the carb. Complete our and we will be happy to assist you. A fitting on the crankcase cover or the dipstick tube draws the pressure to pump the fuel. I am concerned that even a low pressure fuel pump might make too much pressure for the carburetors on these engines to handle. If you do, one way to remedy this is to install a fuel return line system to lower the pressure entering the carb. What if you did a kludge? It cannot be repaired, only replaced. A fitting on the crankcase cover or the dipstick tube draws the pressure to pump fuel.
Its a pain to keep filling the fuel tanks ever couple of hours. Does any one know if the round plastic pulse fuel pumps that are available for small engines are usable with diesel fuel. So fuel in one side a vacuum pulled in the centre and fuel pushed out the other side. I have to buy a new carb just to replace the fuel pump. I see no reason why diesel would be any different than than gasoline. The diaphragm pulsates with the pressure.
If fuel flows from the vacuum fuel pump, than the pump is working. Thanks for all the help. We carry a large selection of Small Engine Fuel Pump ready to ship direct to your door. Make sure it is connected correctly to both the vacuum pump and the engine crankcase. A fitting on the crankcase cover or the dipstick tube draws the pressure to pump Fuel.

Can I use this to keep a small 12volt battery charged? Expedited shipping available, just call! Ill report back on how it goes. Disconnect the vacuum pump outlet line where it connects to the carburetor inlet, and turn the engine over. We also offer maintenance items and accessories like fuel stabilizers, engine oil, and spark plug wrenches. To repair this carb I would purchase number 121A carburetor kit. I was googling and saw that some people have done that with 2 strokes. Seems easy to tap into. If you don't find fuel in the float, then the last place to look is number 947A, the fuel solenoid.
It may have developed a crack and is now holding fuel in it making it no longer float. Also, make sure the engine is not overfilled with oil and the pulse line is not filled with oil. . We hate spam more than you do -- No selling of your info or spamming you, ever. Biggest problem I have found outside of the pump. Ill post the link here in a second. The fuel pump supplies fuel to the carburetor while the engine is running.
Never could get the pulse pump to work right. On the front the engine we have got a vacuum operated fuel pump its operated by pressures created by the engine crank case on a positive pressure it pushes fuel out and then negative pressure pulls fuel in. Manuals can be found at the manufacturers website. Tighten the screws using a torque wrench. Be sure what you need before starting modifications… I recall reading somewhere about a guy that tapped into the dipstick tube to get the pressure pulses needed for the pump. Simply put, the intake or crank case pulse signal alternates between vacuum and meyby slight pressure.
