Hey guys, Problem I've been having for a while now. I actually managed to run it fine without a fuel pump for a good 3 months or so, but decided that ideally, if it comes with one, then it has to be of some benefit (did notice a slight power loss after removing it). Anyway, after playing around with it and getting a new fuel cut relay, it worked fine...for a while anyway. Turns out if i give it a good run on a freeway or anywhere giving it some go, it starts to sputter after a while and sounds like its beginning to starve, and eventually, it stalls. Now once this actually happens, I can't get it to go because the fuel pump only works when its started up. I have to actually short circuit the pump relay to get enough petrol in there to start her up. So I guess it sounds like the pump isn't actually keeping up with the fuel requirements...does it sound like i need a new pump? Also, I notice that sometimes when this happens and i remove the tank, there is a slight crimp in the tank to filter/strainer line, would this have any impact on the rate of fuel flow? should the pump be sucking the fuel out of there anyway or does it only pump once the fuel is in there. any feedback appreciated, cheers.
