Just got a 1984 210 and it had trouble starting, the engine and fuel were filthy. I degreased the engine and cleaned the carb in place with carb cleaner. I flushed the tank and it started right up, but would only run fully choked. I tried cleaning the carb again this time sparying some in the bowl, starting for 1 sec and lettng it sit over night. Now it won't start. I suspect that the carb is plugged and plan a rebuild.

I'm also wondering if I should replace the fuel pump as the volume and pressure seem low to me. (It barley shoots 4" out the end of an extension hose into a pan on the floor and the outer edge of the diaphram looks "ragged"). How strong should the output from the fuel pump be?

Has anyone installed a Kohler or other after market brand pump? These are generally under $50 and the pump from Deere is $119!

If you have the metal fuel pump, you can get a rebuild kit.
