Could it just be the fuel transfer pump??

I fired up my 94 753 and pulled it out of the shop to move some snow. I let it run for about 5min when all of a sudden it just quit. At first, i thought maybe the gauge was not working so I put fuel in. After filling the filter and cracking the lines no fuel was coming out. I pulled the outlet line on the transfer pump that goes to the filter. Nothing was coming out. I pulled the inlet line to the pump and just under a light siphon fuel came out so i know its not plugged or frozen. Can it just be the transfer pump? Could it be anything else? How can I check it further? Are they serviceable or just replace the whole unit? Should I buy from Bobcat or the Kubota dealer? Thanks

The kubota dealer would probably be cheaper and the unit is sealed i think.
The only thing i can think of is you may have ice in the lift pump? even if the lift pump isn't working fuel should be able to go through it if you squeeze the primer bulb.

Right!! The primer bulb! I forgot all about it. (it was dark!!) When I went to squeeze it, it was frozen solid!! So I got out the heat gun, defrosted, primed and away she went....back into the shop. I guess I will have to get some conditioner of some sort tomorrow for water in the fuel. Thanks for the reply
