powermax fuel pump

Recommended Posts


I put a electric fuel pump on the 4041 the other day had problem that it would not pump fuel. Put the pump below tank and then it pumped fine but today I went to cut the grass and found gas coming out the carb . Any body have this problem and what did you do to fix it. I do have the by pass hose hooked up It is a low pressure pump 2 to 4 pounds of pressure

....I put a Mikuni Impulse Fuel Pump on my Landlord, and because

it's a "gravity feed carb", I split the fuel outlet and ran a

bypass line, shunting excess fuel flow up into the top of the

fuel tank.....The carb still thinks it's being fed by gravity...

It has resulted in a much better running tractor, because the

carb thinks it's being fed from a "Full Tank of Fuel" all the

time, and there's no excess pump pressures to deal with...

It maybe that the float is sticking. I would pull carb off clean it out and see if that solves your problem. I have elec. fuel pumps on all 4 of my Pmax's and have not had any problems. One time I hooked up the wrong line from the tank to the pump and it would not pump the fuel, I switched the lines and it work good.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
