  2. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Sorry my bad- I meant 2.5-5 lbs- I befuddled about this-the tractor is running again- I put on a known good stock pump-I will research using a return line back to gas tank- I found one video where they did it on a Deere. They used a T fitting & used the regulator to vary the pressure to let fuel go back to the tank. I haven't given up- just retreated to fight another day- Grass had to get cut! Thanks for all the help- I will up date this post or start another when I make the change- Al
  3. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Just to test, I should be able to turn key on @ 4 lbs and let the pump run- and nothing should leak- correct? I have a Nelson muffler right in front of carb- and dont want to start a fire- Al
  4. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Engine won't start at 4 Lbs- but will start @ 4 1/2 Lbs. But then floods out.- Al
  5. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Sorry- left out that I did get the new carb- checked it out , double checked the float levels- Engine won,t start at any pressure lower than 4 Lbs. At 4 1/2 it starts & runs perfect until you slow it down to around 900 rpm or so- then fuel starts coming out and engine floods out. I'm not a novice- but I feel out of ideas- Thanks- Al

    Happy Birthday Terry- appreciate your expertise!
  7. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Hi Guys- Well- I'm sure each one of you have been in the "place" I am right now. You attack a problem systematically & logically & it still doesn't work. I just went back over everything I did to make sure I didn't make any foolish mistakes. Still the same result- engine starts &runs well, but when you slow it down the carb starts leaking out gas and engine chokes out. I'm beginning to think the problem lies in my fuel pump choice. I was looking for a square shaped "Facet" pump that I was familiar with, but they only had a robust looking Edelbrock pump- 2-3.5 PSI- 28GpH. I would like to keep electric pump setup- but need tractor running- What do you guys think? Should I try to install a return fuel line to the tank-OR- install a rpm regulated stock fuel pump? Thanks- Al

    Thanks for your comments- the throttle shaft on my carb was badly worn- just put up with it until now- combination of needle & seat plus throttle shaft led me to order a new Kohler carb on line-I will let you know what happens- can't wait!- Thanks- Al

    My pump is 2-5PSI- I dont know the condition of the float- carb is older- I wonder if because old pump was getting weaker & weaker it hid the bad float? Looks like a carb teardown is in order- Thanks for the headsup!- Al
  10. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Hate to rain on my om parade- but- its not working out well. I put a regulator on it to stop it flooding engine at lower speeds. That worked, but when I turn it down to stop flooding- it doesn't supply enough gas for high speed. Return line? Or what? Al
  11. A NEW MILE STONE FOR ME

    Congrats Steve! You are a vital member here! Gee- I noticed I started around when you did- and only have 800 posts- does that mean I'm slow? lol- Al
  12. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Just as an update- I used a pump from Edelbrock, low pes.,and tapped into light circuit ahead of light fuse. I fused the pump at 5 amp per directions. This tractor then started before it turned over one revolution- it has never started that quickly before. Engine sounded smoother also- I'm a happy guy!- Thanks- Al

    Thanks Guys for all the suggestions- I've been wanting to do this conversion for years- the Horse just decided now was the time!- Al
  14. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Thanks Jerry- sounds good- my main concern is to not draw too much amperage from the circuit I tap into-to hurt performance- Al
  15. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Thanks- I will have to look on my wiring diagram to see where that is on mine- they are different- Al
