Vacuum fuel pumps

I am in need of a new vacuum fuel pump for a modified Club Car golf cart with a Kawasaki FE290 motor . A new pump from the golfcart store or Kawasaki runs $60-$75. A new B&S pump (#808656) runs $25-40. I'm not sure what motor B&S uses this pump with but these pumps have the same size ports, same number of ports and the chamber appears to be close to the same size. The rebuild kits I find on Ebay look to be identical, same number of diaphragms, gaskets and valves. Can anybody tell me why the B&S won't work? I'm guessing that as long as they are about the same size they will pump at about the same rate. Saving 40 bucks looks good to me. I know this isn't technically a tractor but around the Lazy MF it gets used like one. And it cost me a lot less than a Gator or a Mule.

Hello, so what type of electric fuel pump are people using? I have an old Magnatrac tractor with the OH160 series Tecumseh engine. the carb is a Walbro LMH that uses crank vacuum to run the auto pulse fuel pump( 3001 series) The fuel pump gaskets are done.

What about a Mr Gasket microelectric fuel pump. The 12s model is 2-3.5 psi.
Would this work? How would you route the fuel line?

Thanks for any info.
