It turns over but does not fire. Took off the air filter poured in a small amount of fuel and the engine runs for for a second or so until fue is gone. I hear the fuel pump when turning on the key so i pulled the fuel line off at the bottom of the fuel filter and turned ovee the engine. No fuel came out of the line is that normal?
I also loosened the presure relief screw and I can here fuel pouring into the tank. Is it posible that the fuel line diconected from the pump and is just circulating the fuel in the tank?

Not familiar with the Kawasaki twin cylinder engine on your machine, but are you saying that the series is fuel tank, then fuel filter, then fuel pump, then carburetor?

If you disconnect the filter hose in that sequence and have it lower than the tank gas should pour out from the tank or else you have debris in the tank or something wrong with your fuel hose.

Most fuel pumps on engines that size are vacuum, but could use other means like mechanical or electric to do the job.

I just replaced the fuel pump on a B&S Vanguard Twin for $20.

Has it been a long time since you used it?
