I can no longer get it to stay running unless I rev it to about 2000 rpm. As soon as I lift off the gas it dies again.
Anyone have any ideas ?

I thought It was the fuel pump but after pulling it when I hook it directly to the battery it pumps away just fine. It appears that the fuel pump control unit (Haynes Manual term) / Revolution Sensor (Subaru Dealers term) Is the problem, It is not allowing power through to the pump.
Does anyone know if you can bypass this unit ? or is it needed for the operation of the pump
Thanks in advance

Actually - by the sound of it, it sounds like your fuel filters are clogged. Have you checked both of them? I've never heard of the revolution sensor going out. And the fuel pumps are REALLY tough.

I realize that the fuel pump needs to shut off in case of an accident but i was thinking more along the lines of hooking it up to the oil pressure switch that way on start up the starter provides initial power, after that the coil wire provides it. If the oil pressure drops the circuit is broken and the pump does not continue pumping. I have seen this setup on a few street rods and was wondering if anyone has tried this

Fule filters and pumps are usually the culprit. My friends '84 just needed a fresh pump ad a kick in the rear. Mine needed the jets in the carb cleared, and fuel filters. Make sure vacuum advance is working properly.
Good luck mate,
