: So, the stalling saga continues. . . Last week, I posted a question about stalling and Dwight and other had some good ideas. I did a little more research this weekend and noticed that the fuel filter between the pump and carb is usually half-full (or half-empty depending on your disposition). Anyway, is this normal? The fuel pump is less than a year old and the filter is new. I'm wondering whether the lines and/or tank is crudded up (a la Dwight)or if the shaft to the pump is bad. Should the filter always be full?

: Thanks in advance. Jon

an easy way to find out if there is enough pressure is to disconnect the hose that connects the pump to the filter. start the car and hold a container on the end where the hose was to collect it, there should be enough fuel in the carb to start it so dont worry. i forget the rough figure of how much should come out but hopefully someone else will know that answer, but if the fuel is coming out in erratic spurts than more likely than not it is the fuel pump. hope that helps
