I have been reading all the posts. Learning as much as I can. Thanks to
>everyone for all this great information.
Nick you aint seen nothing yet. --- Put archives on your favorites and sign up for daily
Use aircraft beak-in oil (piston engine) for seating rings. ----And get a leakdown tester
like borrow one from one of the Piston engine ---guys.
Read up on pumps -----it is all there ---and it will save you a lot of mula ----like it did me.
Chuck Carnohan is a senior member of the Pump Gang ---and I see he is helping you.
Smoke today but not tomorrow for no reason -? ----sticky timing mechanism will do that.
so the answer is yes ---pump can be a problem.
Check fuel regulator and delivery valves (like Loren suggested) ---simple to do.
Be careful with regulator valve it is fairly soft so use a deep socket with a cotterkey
inserted. Make sure bottom "0" ging is in good shape. and piston moves freely.
I push mine with a shiskabab scewer from the kitchen.
Vave is right hand thread.
PS : My experience is all Roses after I found the melody. Pump is by far the most interesting
part of Rabbits --- IMHO.
