Default Re: fm 7.5hp z

I'm not sure about your exact engine but most of the Fairbanks Morse Z's use a spring loaded choke disk in the air intake in order to make enough suction to draw gas from the tank.

Remember that it will need a ball type gravity check valve somewhere in the fuel line. If it doesn't have the check valve, it will draw fuel only when choked and will run poorly.

Take care - Elden
