Default Fuel pump issue

I have a '88 columbia par car

We had an issue last night where the cart would run for a bout1/8th mile then seemed to run out of gas. We let it sit for a few muinites (checked for spark checked the plug ect) Then it started and ran for about the same distance.

My question is;

It looks like the pump is serviceable but I can't find a kit. Is there a chance that it can just need cleaning?

If its too far gone Could I just use a cheaper club car style pump? It looks like the operating principals are all the same (vac. operated?)
Thanks, Ken

It could possibly be cleaned...my concern would be tearing a gasket or diaphragm and not being able to get it back together. Check your fuel filter to see if its clogged a little. You could also use a low pressure electric pump. I don't see why a Cub car fuel filter wont work either, any vacuum operated fuel pump should work. A lawn tractor pump could work too.

Thanks. I found the problem this morning. We had two other people in the back, there was a rubber fuel line that ran between the body and frame that was getting pinched. Line re routed did 2 laps with no problems
