Well the last couple of time I've went to use the 1614 the gas tank was really low on gas first time I thought maybe it didn't have as much fuel in the tanks as I thought so I filled it up mowed about 40 min and check the fuel gauge  just under 3/4 when I was done. it sat for about a week so yesterday was going to mow again checked the gauge and it was less than a 1/4 tank checked the tank bottom no sign of leaking gas oil level was as it should be so not going into the engine, put half a tank in and mower checked this morning tank was about empty so got to checking closer found its leak out of the fuel pump and the light finally came on turn the fuel valve off so no it to see it I have a work fuel pump or see if a gasket can  fix the leak. Its always something :wave:

With the heat last week, was it evaporating as fast as it leaked out?

Hi Cat385B & KennyP,not leaking into the crankcase just on the outside and yes it was evaporating just about that fast, it was only a drip but a steady 24 hr one just checked it when I closed the barn door and its all dry around the pump and side of the crankcase, Boy was it hot and miserable in the shop this afternoon  had to put a new deck belt on the Husqvarna and it was a job with the heat and humidity but it on and ready.

Got the 1614 into the shop this morning and removed the fuel pump found it had a crack in the outlet threaded port (this is an old plastic pump) installed an old metal pump I had on the shelf and it seems to be working good. :firejumper: :dancingbanana:

I think this is true but unfortunately all the new replacement pumps are plastic and I don't think a rebuild kit is available for the metal pumps anymore, I have given thought to installing the cover on the mounting pad and installing a low pressure electric pump.Installed an electric fuel pump on the Onan powered Suburban and it works good the Onan never ran so good.
