fuel pump problems
the saga continues. chevy bigblock motorhome would not start. carbed engine. no fuel. we changed fuel pump. no fuel. disconnect fuel lines on pump, crank motor, only 1 suction pulse can be felt. took off fuel pump and cranked motor and FP pushrod will extend but we have to force it up into block. hmm, bent pushrod? not good. we cannot get it out. took out access plug but its almost impossible to grab onto pushrod to try and extract it. ok, plan #2. put on electric fuel pump. not too hard but time consuming. run new fuel lines to carb and now when we run pump, it only spurts/spits out of the line. gas tank is 1/2 full. is something messed up with 2 tank fuel selector switch? and its 93 degrees out. not fun job. the FP really bugs me. who bends a pushrod?
