Opposed fuel pump
« on: August 23, 2019, 08:19:31 AM »
Is it a better choice to modify the stock opposed carburetor for a separate fuel pump than use the original fuel pump in a racing mower? Thanks

Thanks Al, I've read how to do it. My built in pump works, just wondering if there was an advantage to separate them, other than just that. Thanks

The advantage is that someone may have a regular fuel pump in the pits if they are separate.
Not so much on someone having an Oppy pump in a pinch.
