Is this the correct forum? Or is there a hidden sub set I missed?

Awesome! I have a sabre with the 18hp v-twin OHV Vanguard. It is not getting fuel. Already replaced the fuel pump am going to replace all lines later today hopefully. Is there anything else (compression) that I should take a look at first?

Edit: I CAN feel suction from the pump. Not sure what the levels need to by but there is some.

did you try priming the pump?I have gad to do that before..blow into the tank(with it 1/2 full)You can use your mouth..or a wet rag and a couple of quick puffs with compressed air...works best if you do it while cranking it over..I am sure you checked the fuel filter right?

Brand new filter. Haven't tried priming it. I'm replacing the lines either way as they are the original lines and the PO didn't take care of it.

If its getting to the carb and you still have issues it could be the needle and seat or the Eletric shut off valve on the bottom of the carb float bowl..be sure it has a good ground and is getting power(sometimes they stick..but you can unscrew it and clean it out)

It's not getting to the carb. It wasn't even getting to the filter. I know that where the line goes into the tank wasn't sealed so that may be the issue.
