I never used water in any of mine so I took the springs off of the water pump plungers and just let them sit there.
Burning kerosene in an engine that isn't run HOT is self defeating dilutes the crankcase oil and costs more anyway.

The fuel one is solid at the end and the water one has split is it supposed to be like that or did it open up an I needed to repair it? It looks like they were slit then brazed/welded back together. I intend to have the carb and fuel system working like original.

Thanks!
The needle seats have a slot cut in them where it goes into the venturi (top of the carb). The slot should be positioned so it is horizontal when fully tightened. The fuel then goes out both sides of the slot and drops down. The end of the slot is soldered.

As for the springs, any spring will do as long as it can return the pump to the up position.

There are small holes/ galleries where the fuel feeds up from the pumping chambers to the needle seats, make sure to clean these out thoroughly.

Make sure the butterfly shaft is not worn and replace the bushings. File the new bushings once they are installed to follow the bore of the carb.

Understood. Iím rebuilding it and want it functional in case I want to use it as originally made. I mean donít we all have shops full of non-essential stuff :-).
