[DML] Re: Discovered the root cause of my starting problem (I think)

I have actually cleaned the fuel tank about a week ago. I found that 
the filter screen had deteriorated and was ingested by the fuel 
pump. I removed the pump, submerged it in mineral spirits and ran it 
backwards to clear out as much as I could of the filter screen 
particles. I then wiped the tank clean, installed a spring into the 
pickup line, and installed a new filter screen. I also replaced the 
fuel filter at this time. 

I will go back over my pump installation; perhaps the pickup line 
has a hole in it. I will also take a voltage reading for the pump.
