The leaks probably will damage the motor mounts but the chance of a fire
could be worse, don`t drive with a leaking pump !
A guy brought a gas weed eater into work that had been setting all winter,
it was gumbed up and wouldn`t start after several of us tried cranking on it
! Another guy said let me show you something, he sprayed WD-40 into the
carburetor and give it a few cranks and it started right up !
