Brand new fuel filter, I put that on 3 or 4 months ago. The fuel line looks good from the carb to the firewall on the right side. I've never had trouble with a bad line like that without smelling gas. I don't smell gas any more since I did a float adjustment on the carb.The sight glass looks good when the fuel pump runs.
Still getting 28 to 30 mpg here. That's what I have been getting for so many years. I need to do a tune up here and put new plugs, points, condensor, cap and rotor on her. She runs like a top when she has fuel in the carb.
Here is the kicker. Once the pump starts doing this, it heats up and quits. Once it cools, it runs for a little while and will run for 5 minutes and then quits. It then repeats the process.
I did have a bad ground. A mechanic friend stated that a bad ground might cause the pump to heat up and eventually fail. I will check the lines from the firewall back. I am hoping they are metal lines and not rubber. I will let you know when I see tomorrow. I have never checked. Shame on me.
The new fuel pump is in and operation and I have run new electrical wires for a good ground and positive lead. I will dig thru and check my fuel lines tomorrow.
Thanks for the reply.
