There is no pump on the frame unless some one put in a electric fuel system. From the factory these things came with a mechanical pump on the top of the motor. The pump is a 2 stage pump that first bring low pressure fuel from the tank to the fuel bowl then steps up the pressure to fill the injectors. You need a minimum of about 25psi to make it run. 50+ to run well
