yup, that would be me. I posted recently about not being able to get 2 brand new electric fuel pumps to work. For the life of me, I couldn't figure what was wrong. Both came on but wouldn't pump the fuel. I took some suggestions from the previous thread, but still couldn't get neither to work. I thought I'd have to take off and return the 2nd one, but first I wanted to try something. I bought a 5' piece of rubber gas line and unhooked the steel line just in front of the clear glass filter by the carb. I clamped this piece of line on and tried sucking gas from the tank to the front. I thought maybe the pump needed a little prime. I was able to get some gas through the line and I tried the pump; nothing. I tried the siphon again with the same result. At least now I knew the pickup tube attached to the sending unit was ok. I turned the pump on again and listened to it in the hose. No doubt it was on and trying to work. I then put my finger over the line and there was suction. OMG. I knew immediately what was wrong. I shut it off and took a look at the pump. On the bottom of the pump, there are in/out with arrows. Yes, I had it on backyards. I had the inlet line feeding the outlet of the pump. Of course this isn't going to work. I could have swore that I had it on right. I think in the previous thread I was even asked if I had it going in the right dirtection. Of course I responded. No one can put that on backyards; except me. So, I changed it around, hooked everything up and turned it on. That pump made some noise. I watched the filter slightly fill and stop. Not much at all. Now what??? Why does this always happen to me?? I then realized that I had drained the tank to change the pump and there was no gas in it. No sense in being stupid unless you show it. I put 10 gals. of gas in it, the pump picked it up and I drove the car out of the garage. Having had enough, I set up my lawn chair, had a nice cup of coffee, listened to the birds chirp, watched butterflies come by, saw 2 squirrels chasing each other and even smelled the fragrance of some flowers. A beautiful morning afterall, Carmine.
