Well I didn't make any new lines. And when the engine started running, it was holding 5-7 PSI on the line. Isn't that what it's suppose to be??

that is the correct pressure, it's possible a check valve in the pump didn't close. I f your oil checks out then you may be ok, I'd still get a spare pump ready though.

I f you have a generator there is a check valve that is supposed to stop you sucking air through the gen set.

Thats the idea. If you had some sort of blockage at the inlet of the carb the PSI would be fine. But if the level drops while running, you know where to look.
