I would remove the pump, tune up the carb (hopefully they didn't bugger up the seat in there), and try it out. If you are having a lot of problems getting it to run right, there are 2 gaskets for the carb. One between the block and the tin, and one between the tin and the carb. Check them both for leaks before you doubt yourself too much.
Oh, and where's the pics?

so far most of what i parted out were cheap lawn tractor. i dont feel so bad about them, its more like good riddance. the only cub cadet i have been parting so far is a 582 that has a blown engine and is already missing a bunch of parts. allot of that stuff is finding its way onto a 782 that runs fantastic but has allot of cosmetic issues. i brought back to life a 126, 147, 169, suburban, and an 1100. i like putting the life back into a classic that has been sitting too long. something even better this guy has 3 early cub cadets. he has an original, a 70, and a 100. im going to eventually bring those 3 back to life as well. the 3 early machines have been stored inside but just havent been run recently. he has the respect to keep the O inside. he is a good guy in my book, allowing me to save some of these tractors from the scrap heap and not just parting them out for a quick buck.
i would feel badly to scrap out the machines that are still savable. i dont like the idea of taking history and making so it will never run again. that would make me sad. glad those machines are allowed to live again and im the one that gets to do it.
