Pump Image.jpg I finally received the kit for my K10-WIP fuel pump but...there are no installation instructions.  Anyone installed one?  I am lost.  Went on line and found a smattering of information but also found the info was not 100% correct.  One thing that's required is: there are rubber nipples protruding from the backside of the check valves. I installed each valve as the old one was removed so was sure that part was right...I believe.

Now, there was also a small rectangular sponge included which I assume to be a filter. But there is no hole in the opening anywhere for it to be filtering anything.

It's all in a pile on my desk right now pending a response from someone who knows what I have and can tell me how to go about what needs to be done.

Taking my pounding head to the pillow for now.

Thanks for any help.

Man you saved me with this. First thing this morning, after getting my coffee, I studied all the parts and with a bit of common sense realized what the arrows on housing meant and put it together, still not sure it was being done correctly.  Then I checked here and found your diagram.  It appears I did it right but, it also appears I am missing three parts.  #'s 5,6,14. Those were not seen when the pump was initially disassembled, I did it on a white towel so nothing would be missed nor be able to roll away. Think they are important, were there, ever there? There are no impressions on the diaphragm indicating their presence.

Any clue what the purpose of the foam block is?

Thank you. 

Never mind. My BAD! Just realized the pdf link and, going through it, shows the parts were not there for the WIP 15.

Thanks again.

Look at the pdf he posted. The foam is an air filter.

Yepper, did that, but still not clear as to how air is intended to enter the space when there is no outlet...at least i'm not seeing one, even with a jewelers loupe.

Back to square 1.  Nothing! Pulled outlet side of filter off, dropped it down below tank level, gas came out, the filter was full.  Hooked it back up, cranked about 3 times @ 5 seconds each...nothing. Suggestions?

Going back out to add a direct shot to intake of carb to see if it fires.

Didn't do the gas in the carb thing but did put vac gauge on inlet side of pump...pulled around 5 inches mercury, from what I interpret.  Wondering if the line from tank to pump has a crack,cut, hole worn in it...it'll pull air before liquid from past experiences with vacs.  Back to tracing fuel line, taking off tank etc. Back later.

It lives!  After taking everything apart, fuel tank out, doing a vac check on the line the problem was found...back where I first started.  The line was cracked majorly at the outlet end of the filter. At least I now know how to take the fuel tank etc. out. Replaced the filter to pump line cranked several seconds and it fired up good as ever.

Thinking cracked fuel lines were the issue with loping etc. all along. Eh, at least it has a rebuilt fuel pump, new filter, fuel lines.  Thanks again.
