I have been reading all the posts. Learning as much as I can. Thanks to >everyone for all this great information. Nick Nick you aint seen nothing yet. --- Put archives on your favorites and sign up for daily digest. 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. Hagar. PS : My experience is all Roses after I found the melody. Pump is by far the most interesting part of Rabbits --- IMHO.
