Default f m z 3 hp mixer

when i take the mixer off there is a small brass tube , dose anyone know how long it is suppose to be ? the only way it half way runs is if i choke part of the hole on bottom of mixer, the needle valve dose not make any differnce if it is 1/2 turn out or all the way out.i have cleaned the mixer ,and blow out with air , several times . any ideas . thanks ron brown in central il.

Ron, The brass tube can be flush with the casting or stick in a little way. It's not critical. Sounds like you have a check ball on the end of the pick up tube that's not working. Also make sure the check ball under the pump is seated properly. Hope this helps. DanR

Hi, Brickman. Just to clarify things there is no checkvalve on the end of the suction line. there is a checkball inside the brass fuelpump plunger and one underneath it. thats it. also the brass tube comming out of the mixer is 3/4 inch long. it is suppost to stick into the cylinder head close to the butterfly valve. if you need a picture to explain this or parts for this mixer look on the Hit and Miss web site in the engine parts catalog under 3 and 6 HP FM Z ignitor engines.i bought all my parts from Ed and the engine runs real well.
