Fuel pump squirting

Why would my fuel pump on Snapper LT200 B&S 441577 20 HP Twin OV be squirting fuel out the little hole in the center of the pump when running?

Can I run it until I can replace the pump?

The diaphragm is likely sprung a leak. I may run forever like that but there is the hazard of fuel on a hot engine....


Just needs a bigger hammer
