I hope this pump fixes your issue. We me know how it works, I may be looking into one for our mower we use at the plant.
Will do. I want to put one on my GT 18 as well as my mother's.

i worked at a speed shop for years,those auto pumps can be regged down to deliver ok,but they tend to die if necked down too far,the gph is way more than a 2cylinder needs,im thinking maybe a pump for a jet ski? if you must run an electric one

I think I also found why the vacuum pump was so intermittent...
When I turned the key on the first time, fuel sprayed out of the red, quarter-sized inline fuel filter that is between the pump and the carburetor. The seam on it was leaking, so the vacuum pump was drawing air, rather than fuel.
Anyway, that's two mysteries solved... now on to my GT 18 and getting a new top grill for it... but I'll put that in another post.

US... make sure you cut, then plug off the vac lines at the pump & at the block. If the diaphragm springs a leak, it would fill your block with fuel.
Will do. I didn't realize that...
