Went to riding today and after 10 min realized I had gas leaking from my accelerator pump (Bendix on 81 shov) down onto the engine and exhaust. Not good... My question is, do I replace my accelerator pump or could this be a float issue? FYI,,I recently put a new fuel line in (5/16), is that too much and is dumping to much gas into the bowl and then out the pump? A little insight would be much appreciated.
It's likely the pump. Gas shouldn't leak past the seal. Kit comes with the rod, plunger sea,l and boot. I just replaced one in my shovel, except it's on a Super B with Superbowl kit (uses a Bendix accelerator pump). Mine was squirting gas out the side when I opened the throttle.
