The carb is a Kohler bought from a very helpful member here. It was not getting fuel before. I traded out the original fuel pump for an aftermarket one from Isavetractors. Took a while to get the line primed (is there a trick to that?) but now seems to be running great. Still haven't made adjustments to the carb but I understand what to do next.

 

Long way to go but important milestone for sure. THANKS!

     To prime the pump and line I leave the line off the carb and apply pressure to the tank. Put the carb end of the fuel line into a can to avoid spill. I use a clean piece of fuel line sealed into the filler neck to blow buy mouth into the tank. Never takes long to blow fuel into the can.  Don
