Question about Garden
Fuel pump will not pull gas from the tank. I took off the fuel line, poured some gas into the line added a little pressure and the engine started/. I think the vacuum hose has a leak but I only see it attached to the engine block?
This type of pump takes a pulse from the engine as the piston rises and falls, this is fed to a diaphram in the pump which then pulsates and pumps the fuel, if there is a loose or cracked pipe it will not work, if the diaphram is split or has hardened you will need to replace the pump as it is not sevicable.

If the fuel pump is working correctly then the problem is between the tank and the pump. run a fuel line from the pump to a gas can. If the pump is working it will siphon the fuel into your filter. If the pump is fine then there is blockage, broken fuel line (sucking air), or something blocking the pick up inside the tank.

Sounds like you may have a problem with Choke adjustment, or perhaps a broken choke cable. Do you have a workshop manual?
