    Anyone else have expericnce with the zenith?

    The first tool out of the box should be the "book"  Geeked

    Led, there should be a spring involved in the pump, is it in there? If it can't return, it's already down, and won't work.

    Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.

     the pumps on the bendix carbs is usually leather, and is a very tight fit until it wears in. did you lube the bore before installation?
