B&S 11 HP Engine Model 252400 with fuel pump

I have a couple questions on the subject engine The engine is on a wheel horse garden tractor. It has a fuel pump on it. It will start if you dump gas down carb however wont keep running on its own 1) What happens if you install a fuel filter for a non fuel pump engine -- will it not run or start properly 2) How likely is it that the fuel pump is shot as opposed to the needle and seat sticking. Thanks in advance.

You can use the filter, no problem. Have you taken the carb bowl off to see how the carb looks? Probably a carb problem, but could be the pump too, or both. There's no way of knowing without looking.

Remove the spark plug from the cylinder head, tie the plug wire off in a safe location, remove the fuel line from the carburetor fitting, using a coffee can or similar catch can crank the engine over for a few seconds and see how the fuel flow is from the fuel line into the catch can. Good flow - faulty carb, poor flow - faulty pump and/or carb, or, remotely possible, collapsed fuel or pulse lines.

When you've determined the exact problem, post back with the exact model, type and code numbers of the engine and I can provide you with the Briggs part numbers you'll need to get you back up and running.

Well all fixed except for slight leak at fuel pump fitting which I will address in another post. It was the fuel pump. Had gas at the tank, but not in front of the filter. Installed the fuel pump rebuild kit $29.95 and fired right up. The engine is a 252417 0664-01 84040910 The fuel pump kit is 394462
