    It won't start. It was running great when I parked it but the next day it wouldn't turn over. I'm pretty sure it's not getting fuel because it starts when I put a little gas in the carb then dies. Should I just drop the tank and replace fuel pump or is it the carb? Any ideas are helpful.

    Welcome! Before dropping the tank, check to make sure the pump is getting power. If its not getting power, it could be another issue

    The pump is getting power, I'm not sure about the pressure though. I'm getting fuel up to the line that goes into the carb. I'm guessing the next step is check the fuel pressure. Does anyone know what normal pressure is?
