When the fuel level get to about 1/4 of a tank, and the tractor sets overnight the engine will sart right up as always but runs out of fuel in a few seconds. I go throught the priming procedures and it will start and run, or I can start it with starter fluid wich I do not like to do, and it will run ok. During the day it starts no problem. I have found that if I pump the fuel pump by hand it will start and run ok. This does not happen when fuel level in tank is up. New fuel filters have not helped and have checked for leaks. Is this a fuel pump problem? Do not want to fork over A hundred buck plus just on a hunch. Thanks Sid

sounds like the check valve in the primer pump might leaking or the seal on the plunger.
