Fuel pumps

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm afraid I may be running into a problem, and have to apologize in advance for the off- topic tractor. The tractor isnt really important, because it's engine troubles I'm having. I have a 10 horse Briggs&Stratton verticle shaft single cylinder I'm swapping into a garden tractor. The catch is, due to the tractor's small frame and design, I can no longer mount the gas tank in the factory location due to a taller engine. I have plently of room behind the engine, but that's at a lower level than the carb. My question- Are there any small electric fuel pumps I could adapt to this application?

Hi Mag, saw a post awhile back where a fella, was having trouble with his K-321 mechanical fuel pump. He went to NAPA, purchased a small universal electric fuel pump and his headaches went away....cost less than $25. He took the mechanical fuel pump off and covered the hole with a plate. Another guy said he could drill a hole in that plate for a vacuum fitting and install a pressure fuel pump, too.

If you use one of those small "FACET" solid state pumps make sure that you get the 2.5-3 psi model and put a NAPA 3007 fuel filter on the suction side of the pump to keep dirt from plugging the check ball if you ever run out of Gas. Don

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
