    I finished up building my 11 year old granddaughter 's chest of drawers. Been working on it maybe a month while the wife was in the hospital in my spare time. Also made her a night stand.

    Put another new pump on it. Ran a few minutes and quit. Monday, I need to see if the filters are plugged or what is going on.

    That really sucks. if it is a manual pump on the block, I'd purchase a plate, cover up the pump hole, and install an electric fuel pump.

    Airtex has a bad rep I have found out. But it's all anyone here carries.

    I can't see anything other than filters. ........or maybe a rubber portion of the line falling apart internally and causing a blockage. I kinda doubt that, but stranger things have happened as they say.

    Called vapor lock. Quite common back when. Especially after the engine was heated up. We used to put foil or clothes pins on the fuel lines to keep them cool.

    I had several old vehicles that did that Daris. But last one was in the 60s.

    Replaced the 'distributor mounted' electronic ignition module on my 87 F150, EFI 302. The book says you have to remove the distributor. It looks like you do, due to the location of the upper radiator hose. I marked the distributor location with a sharpie, then turned the distributor enough to be able to get a tool on the screws. Put the new TFI module on, turned the distributor back to where it was and tightened it down. Runs like a champ.

    I had a '56 Crown Victoria that would do it without clothespins on the gas lines.

    I have traced the gas line from the pump back to the tank. No filter.
