    Be sure to get the red can, and read / follow the instructions. If you haven't used contact cement before, it is somewhat counter intuitive to apply......

    Thanks Guys!

    Next question; I am not sure that I am getting gas to my carb. It will run and idle (roughly) but when you give it gas it dies. Just started doing this yesterday. I poured some gas into the carb and it would run great until the gas was used up. Also, the water/sediment bowl takes a bit before it will fill up. Not sure if its a blockage or fuel pump going bad. Any ideas?

    This fuel pump looks like a bear to change. I'm hoping someone has good news for me or a solution that doesn't require the removal of that pump.

    Fuel pump is NOT inside the gas tank on a carburetor machine.

    Is your engine two or three cylinder?

    Do the spark plugs stick straight up from the top of the engine, or are the spark plugs at a very low angle?

    It is a two cylinder and the spark plugs stick straight up.

    I actually figured out that the fuel pump was on the carb after reading some posts. Hey, I really am new to this sort of thing. I can fix most anything on a car but two cycle engines that are water cooled..... I am clueless.
