If your pressure is bad..you get to repeat it again.
First because a mechanic replaced the pump over a year ago with one from Kragens.
(I am not a fan of Master fuel pumps, and it has always bugged me that someone else worked on my car)
also the pressure/volume was poor. I dont need a gauge to see fuel only trickle from the schrader valve.
A Taxi cost me $40 to get the pump and it would have been the same if I went and bought a fuel pressure gauge. $40 Taxi + $40 Gauge. I havent needed a fuel pressure gauge in 47 Years so I felt no real need to get one now. I would rather take a chance and get a better pump.
So I knew from the beginning that I wanted a new Delco pump and screen.(no matter what)
When I removed the sending unit I noticed the pump wasent connected correctly to the tube (poor mount or installation) that would let the pressure leak out.
I installed the new pump and it fits very nice on the tube and now I have piece of mind as well.
I will install the tank tomorrow and see if it runs.
Has anyone here ever needed to replace the fuel pump relay?
