    Like you say, the fuel pump diaphragm probably is NOT the cause if the fuel is running out of the carb. PLEASE DO NOT disassemble that fuel pump to check for a broken diaphragm. The pump does not have to be disassembled to check for a leaky diaphragm.

    Yeah, like I posted before, I just hooked up the gas line and gave the bulb a squeeze and it was flowing out of the diaphragm hole. Problem identified 🙂

    This motor had a few different things going on at once, fortunately I found all of them and it’s A-OK now. These 6’s sure are quiet little motors when they have good compression for low idle and no rod-knock.

    OK, glad it is resovled. I’m sure that new style thermostat has some sort of little bleed/bypass, it just isn’t easy to see.
