I have an 1886-02 with one of those electric pumps that looks exactly like the Facet on kirk engines website except it says Fram on it. The PO installed but I don't know where he got it. It works great.

I'm sure you'll get it fixed Ken.  Hope it's in time for snow removal for you.. 

 

 

everyone else got the snow.. i don't see any snow coming anytime this year... so anyway i guess the fuel pump was the problem?

One morning I had a similar situation with the engine turning over hard on my HT23.  I went out and bought a battery before check the oil level, only to see it was way over full and mixed with gas.  I rebuilt the carb with a new needle and seat, changed the oil and installed a fuel shut-off valve as added measure.  No problems since.

I think I'm probably going to be needing a new pump for the 1886FL.

 

Looks like this place has the original part for right around $50.00 shipped.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the ones for the big twins.

I saw them at Pats before. The one for my K-582 is the $112 one I believe. The later years had the plastic non rebuildable ones. I put the inline manual valve in for now, and will go with the electric pump at a later date.

She's purring like a kitten Sam, I put an inline fuel shutoff in for now. One of these days I'll put an electric fuel pump/shut off in. Now I just have to remember to shut the valve after each use.

Well as always I procrastinated. But I finally ordered and received the Facet electric fuel pump for this HT-23. I bought another one for a different HT-23 as well.
The 2nd one is very hard to start after sitting a few days. I'm 99.9% sure it's because of a weak manual pump.

I hope to get them both installed this weekend. They strongly suggest a fuel filter before the pump, which I also plan to do. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1380236642.360375.jpg

Well I see you weren't kidding when you said you ordered them!  Good to see you got the same great service from them that I did. :thumbs:
