Fuel pump
Anyone have any idea why something like this wouldn't work on one of the older pulse system engines ? Same basic principle as far as I can tell but considerably cheaper if it would work.

Re: Fuel pump
as long as the engine will pull a vacume it should work.....................8)

Re: Fuel pump

My only concern would be the nipple sizes for the fuel lines.

Re: Fuel pump

Re: Fuel pump
what about those little 12 volt fuel pumps any good? i have seen them on carts but have never used one and not sure of cost.................8)

Re: Fuel pump
I would be afraid they would flood the carb but I've never used one either. These little pulse pumps are just to simple and proven to try anything else.

Re: Fuel pump

Re: Fuel pump
The fuel pump link I posted flashed to a different page :oops: The one I was meaning to post was ABS construction and cost $10.05. Re Electric fuel pumps, it's been a while but iirc the problem of flooding the carburettor was solved by "teeing" off the fuel line to allow a return to the tank. Apparantly, enough fuel was delivered to the carb using this method. Rather like a crude version of a modern FI automotive application I imagine.
