OFF BRAND QUESTION

Recommended Posts

I was working on one of my "bargains"today that being the Dayton with the 18hp B&S magnatron? anyway after I sorted the wiring out and put some fuel in the carb it ran for a few seconds and died no fuel in the line .Do the big B&S have a fuel pump? the tank on this is under the seat and the line comes out off the bottom I can`t believe it`s gravity feed with the carb being higher than the tank? Any ideas would be appreciated thanks for the help. JBLACK?

It has a crankcase pressure activated pump, sometimes after they sit a long time the hose will dry rot and leak, to find it look at the carb, it will have two hoses the same size, one is the fuel hose the other is the pump hose. the pump hose is short and goes to the crankcase, hope this helps, Mel

Is the diaphram located on the carb? Like everything else on this thing preveous owners have removed engines model/serial nos.Only markings on it are the hp/cc magnetron labels.
