Gravely Commercial 12 not starting
having problems starting my gravely. Just to stress that out- I am from Europe.
So, the last time I started it, was last year. It started and ran fine. The fuel pump is not working and the fuel line comes directly from tank to carb. I tested the pump the other day and when you wet the to connections the water the is on the whole goes in and out on both ends, but when line connected does not seem to pump fuel up to carb. So, when i turn the key, starter works, fan rotates, but engine does not start. Spark is ok as I removed it and tested. Apart from having some black deposits it looked ok and the spark it produces look ok. What could be the reason? What to look for?
PS tried to start with choke on, but after holding started key for about 7secs nothing happened. Tried with little bit of throttle, same.
