'89 JD 318 P218G Onan

Carb was recently rebuilt, but I noticed this before card was rebuilt.
Electric low pressure fuel pump. OEM vacuum fuel pump deleted

If this tractor sits for a coupls' months, it will NOT start!

I have to pull everything off the top of the carb and put a couple drops of gas down it's throat, then it starts right up and will start as long as I run it every week or two.

I assume the carb is running dry?

These carbs typically don't syphon dry, but let's assume yours is! When you turn key to "Run" you should hear fuel pump "click" fast and or loud. After 15 or 20 seconds it should slow down or get quieter. NOW go to start. If still no start, maybe choke isn't fully closing. As a side note, did you plug/block vacuum line for OEM pump? Bob
I will check on all these things you mentioned, but I am 99% sure the answer is yes to all.
