If it is necessary to replace pump diaphram take the extra time to check screen filters on end of pickup tube(s) that extend into tank from carb body,screen(s) may be dirty/gummed up.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Yes indeed check the screens. I recently placed a generator into service after many years of sitting. It was an auction purchase with a 5HP B&S - the fuel was brown/yellow and smelled up the entire shop. After filling with fresh E-10 the engine started and ran well.

Two days later I went to use the generator and it would only run on choke. I removed the carb/fuel tank for disassembly. All looked well to my surprize, except the screen below the main jet was coated with a soft gummy film. I assembled everything without the screen and the engine then ran fine without choke after warm up.

I concluded(?) the fresh fuel soften/swelled the varnish deposit on the fine screen enough to restrict flow to the main jet. I had also noticed this before with a tiller that used the long dip tube and small screen in the end.

Note - I am not recommending use without the screens. I had actually cleaned the screen and found it in on the work bench the next day. Just decided not to take every thing apart again.
