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

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
