Fuel pump SBC
Just setup my cooling system so I wanted to run my jeep up to operating temperature.
I've got a feeling the fuel pump is hooped.
No fuel in filter when I crank..
(I've got a 3 port carter pump on my SBC.. ones in, ones out, and ones return.)
When I stuck the electric pump on the rail to see if it just needed the carb floats to fill, it pumped through the fuelpump.. but the fuel dissapeard..
Does this mean I diaphram is cooked and I just pumped a couple of gallons of fuel into my oil? [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Figured it was a good time to add the oil flush stuff and do that. So I did..
It runs right now iwth the electrical pump bypassing the mech.
I don't know much about mechanical pumps... so any info is appericated.
Can I get just a diaphram for this or do I have to get a whole new pump?
