I put another carb that I knew somewhat ran. At least I got her to run for more than a minute. Any body had any luck with those new cheap carbs on ebay?

I wonder if these really need a fuel pump? At least for running full throttle test in the shop?

I know I'm a bit late. But, no you don't need a fuel pump.
You can use gravity feed. Just keep the tank higher than the carb.
As long as you don't have air in the line you should be fine.

I haven't tried one personally but there was some talk about them on another forum and folks were happy with them.

Now the new fuel pump I put on isn't working.  Its like this wasn't ment to be.  I will soon order a new carb and new oem fuel pump.  New goal - Have it driving and mowing by March 15th.

B-farm, think the 14 hp takes a diff arm on the pump, maybe longer? to work. Check if you have same arm as old one on the new pump?  OR, don't some engines take the lever on opposite side of cam, like up on top or at bottom when mounted? Might check the lines between pump and carb. I know they are short, but have had those be plugged or leaking many times. AND, did you remember to turn on the tank's valve at bottom it it has one? Mine had one.

I had plans of this thread showing 3ph pictures and snow plowing pics by now.  Pictures of fixing the little things and pictures of it getting ready to mow/plow.  I'm tired of messing with this.  Something if wrong with the fuel system.  I ordered a new carb and a new fuel pump so wish me luck.  I really hope to have this thing running by next weekend.

 

I have been thinking about it and think I am going to remove the fuel tank.  I don't like its location and don't care for the looks of the air filter sticking out the side.  There is enough room to put the battery in the tank location and putting a tank where the battery is.  Where's the best place to get an aftermarket tank?  I need one about the size of a battery.

Finally got the new carb and fuel pump on.  It runs great but still has several loose ends I need to fix.  The belt tensioner is not working the right way and its throwing belts.

On some of those wheelhorses, you need to have the belt cover on.
There may be tabs on the inside of the cover that keep the belt in place.

I actually thought about that after the fact.  That will be my next step but first Ive got to find a manual and look up the belt size.

I haven't done much with the belt but I am thinking about the hitch. uploadfromtaptalk1426990934380.jpg

I've got a couple options. With a few different 3ph setups I have laying around here. uploadfromtaptalk1426991096319.jpg
