    from my understanding the the 700 motors used kenith carbs. so i do not believe that mikuni pump will work.. the 700 is a domestic red motor.. the mikuni mostly came with the blue fugi motors.

    some one that knows for sure wil chime in soon

    Looks like there is only one on the 2 cylinders(pto), don't know how you would bypass it. There might be a fuel rail available somewhere, if there is it would surely cost more than a new pump would.

    mine is a 1050 thats why there are two..

    i think you are better off just replacing the pump.

    They sell rebuild kits for the fuel pumps.

    Make sure you pulse hose is in good shape,and you have good compression (to provide a good pulse for the pump )

    They absolutely sell rebuild kits for those kehein carbs, Nows a good time to examin your fuel system from front to back. I had recently gone through this proccess & found quite a few problems other than the carbs.
    Good Luck BRIAN

    thanks for the responses,i thought you could not rebuild those pumps,they have the security screws holding them together and i read they were not rebuildable,i can get it apart but i probably will just buy a new one.i am going to look around,new one i found was $ 90.00.
