RE: [DML] Fuel Pump?

You didn't say how long the car had been sitting and did you charge the
battery up to a full charge first. So many people don't and that could be a

Subject: RE: [DML] Fuel Pump?

  I went to fire up the "Silver Bullet" this weekend, and though it has been
a fair time, the normally reliable beast was not so this time.  Tapped the
inertia switch back in place, turned the key to "run", listened as the
ubiquitous hum & relay-clicking stopped, flicked the key, and "vroom"....
for about 2 seconds. Then nothing but spin. Got it to run about 15-20
seconds when I "primed" it, but would not keep going. Pulled an injector,
tried starting again and no squirting fuel. Popped the engine-side line off
accumulator, spun with same results. Pulled the center line off the fuel
pump, spun, again, no squirting fuel. Hmmm. Do fuel pumps spontaneously die
like that?  This is my 2nd, in use (well, not much) for ~18 yrs. Am I
missing something, or is it time for a new pump?        Drive Stainless  (if
it would start)      Robert   VIN 6924
