The pickup tube in the craft's fuel tank has likely worked loose and dropped into the tank. The generator lost its "straw" that it needs to siphon fuel through.

Disconnect the fuel line from the carb and turn on. If no fuel comes out of the hose, the pump is bad.

I have a 1996 Mercury 25 H.P. Tracker motor 2 stroke. It is hard starting but when it starts it will stop running after a short time. If I keep the gas pump bowl pumped up it will still run and then stop...

removing from the motor on the boat is not difficult
rebuilding the carby is for professional marine shops as you cannot get out and walk home if you get it wrong
from your description the problem is in the fuel pump on the side of the motor ( rubber bits in the valves)
most carby and fuel problems come from rotting rubber in the lines , pump ( diaphragm and valves )and those bits blocking the carby inlet and jets
to add to your woes , if you use e mix as a fuel, it collects water and that helps the rotting process as well as rusting in the tank
for safety sake let the marine mechanics do the job
more than your life can be at stake

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run

Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

It could be fuel pump or carburetor. Make sure tank valve is open (if equipped), remove fuel line from carb and carefully have someone turn engine over, if you get a good stream coming from line you know pump is good, then you know problem is in carburetor. Hope this helps.

My 25 horse kohler starts when I put gas in the carb, then shuts off. I have gas from the fuel pump--HELP!

first check for power going to the solenoid on the bottom of the carb its a anti backfire valve if you have power there when the key is cranking and when turned on the solenoid might just be stuck if that works maybe the gas that was left in the carb turn bad

289 2 barrel with new fuel pump. gas will not stay in the fuel line after the car sits even for a few minutes. Has to be pumped back up into the filter and carb. by cranking at least 20 times.

Even if that was true, the car would run for 20 seconds without any fuel in the line, because the carb would have gas in the bowl. Why was the fuel pump replaced? How do you know theres no gas in the line? The check valve in the fuel pump should keep fuel from going backwards into the tank. The carb should hold gas, if not, find out why.

Kohler motor starts then carb loads up with gas

If the engine is running rough then this could mean that you have weak spark or valve adjustment. When an engine runs rough it will not burn all the fuel, which will create excess fuel in the air cleaner housing. Also, make sure the the float is closing in the carberator.
