Angry Sailor and Vanman,
Both make sense. I went back and took a better look at mine, and they both have 3 lines involved in the fuel supply. Sorry for the sideways pics.

While I was poking around in that dark corner, I noticed this little rascal sitting there right next to the Simms D, Homelite Tank Heater/Generator, 32V. I couldn't crawl far enough into the hole to read the mod.#.

Gus your second picture looks more like my carb. From what I am gathering is that the air is lifting the gas like the aquarium filter used air to lift the water to the filter when I had tropical fish many years ago. Am I correct in assuming that the air lift goes into the fuel bowl and the threaded hole is the overflow. It seams to me that there would be a lot of air to get rid of , Down the overflow?? I tried to run the engine today , hoping that it would suck the fuel up using the choke. I fooled with it for over an hour. If I primed it I got it to pop , But not to run. Back to the drawing board.

Ron, I thought about the aquarium bubbler. seems like a simple pump for a simple machine. The viscosity of the fuel vs water may have needed less air to do the lifting.
Also found another ad that says no batteries required, so they are direct service machines, but I forgot to look to see the output connection on my machines.
