opposed twin fuel pump question

694 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Ericjr16
I am the proud owner of a 14 horse briggs opposed twin. the previous owner did some monkeying with the fuel pump. i have recently been lead to believe that i hooked the fuel hose to the vacuum port and vice versa.
Auto part Vehicle

I had the vacuum line to the to the inlet with green clamp and fuel to the red. Is this correct?

Hello broken, no it is incorrect! The fuel goes to the left port and vacuum to bottom port.
Good luck!
I rebuilt the pump 3 times at just over $10 each time cleaned everything multiple times and spent several hours trying to get this to run. Finally giving up and blocking what i thought was the vacuum port to converting it to gravity feed. Thank you so much for saving me any more trouble.:thanku:
Look at bright side, only stupid question is the one never asked! I have done some good one in my life!! We cleaned carb and went nuts why it ran horrible, until I saw the hidden to me adjustment screw! :( Two turns and it ran great! LOL
