Hustler Fuel issues. HELP ME

    I have a Hustler Fastrak Model # 926501 Serial # 04041252 - I cant seem to get this thing started. I want to think I have narrowed it down to the Fuel Pump. But, when i crank it over to try and start it I have found gas will drip from the muffler pipe. I cant say it is coming out of the muffler, I dont think it is. I get fuel to the carb when cranking it but it will never turn over and run. Spark is good. Is the fuel pump on this Electric?

    Anyone have this issue before and can help me?

    This mower has a 18hp Honda motor on it. I cant seem to find a parts list or diagram for motor parts.

    Thanks everyone!

    The hustler website should have the owners manual and parts manual in PDF format. I have a mini 36 with the 17 horse Kohler and the fuel pump is a little circular thing on the rear of the engine. There's 3 lines coming off of it, fuel in, fuel out, and I guess vacuum. Could be the diaphragm inside the fuel pump is shot and is leaking fuel into intake or crankcase(wherever the signal is from). If u locate this, pull the line that looks like it should NOT have fuel in it. If there is fuel, change the pump and change your oil. Then try it again. Keep us posted
