Default IHC 2 HP Famous

I have a 2 HP upright Famous. It seems the fuel pump may need new packing as it doesn't want to pump. How is that done?

well first check the check valves in the fuel line,then if there ok if you take the pump off carefully, and then remove the pump cap that is where the pump piston rod goes up and down, carefuly take the packing out and look down the shaft to see if any thing is blocking ,or broken there, clean up the pump shaft and if you can get some graphite string packing and replace about the same amount,,tighten the pump capwith your hand so that the plunger still moves up and down with slight resistance....if you still have a issue email me
