Same GT tractor as always, the one in the sig.

I noticed the that there was a steady stream of gas dripping down the fire wall and on the ground the other day. I traced it to the fuel pump, so I took it off. I found a replacement pump on Amazon for $9 , and it works great, just wondering if this is fixable, and is it worth it? It seems that the connector tube came out of the fuel pump, not sure if it is supposed to be that way or what.

It could maybe be fixed with jb weld ,but since you got a new one on and its working I wouldn't bother.I would put in an inline shut off valve between the tank and fuel pump just to be safe.I consider them cheap insurance.

THanks Bill, that is the plan.  Got all new fuel line because it needs to be a tad longer for the new pump.  Definitely putting in a shutoff for multiple reasons:

1.  Able to burn any fuel off in carb and pump to help stop gasket deterioration

2.  ok....that is really the only reason.
