Well, yeah, what the topic says. I changed the filter back by the tank a few thousand miles ago, and I'm wondering if there is another one somewhere, like there apparently is on ea81 soobs. I may also have a bad fuel pump though, because it seems like she's starving for fuel when a lot is required. It also looks like the float bowl isn't filling up properly. I haven't yet verfified the float travel on the Weber, but it should be good since I just bought that carb new a few months ago.

I've only found the filter near the pump on my '86. Haven't seen anything in the FSM about a second filter for the carb'd models either. Good luck.

kelly - there is only one fuel filter on our cars. Fuel injected have 2. Carbs have one (next to the fuel pump)

Thanks. I will now proceed checking the fuel pump output. Since I don't have a pressure gauge or anything, how much fuel should be coming out of the line if I just let it run?

The only other possible place for a filter is inside the gas tank. Not likely to be the problem though.

The fuel pump could be going out, and giving weak or intermittant output. A pressure guage is best, but you could visually inspect by shooting the fuel into a pop bottle. Have a friend crank the engine and watch for a strong steady stream. It's usually very obvious if the fuel aint making it that far. And with the filter replaced, you can be pretty confident that the issue is at the pump.

Dont forget electrical testing if you suspect the pump.

good luck, John
