Mel Posted November 14, 2022 Report Share Posted November 14, 2022 Fuel delivery problem to the carburetor; filter is good. Fuel pump replacement didn't help; this was a lot of fun as the (replacement) outlet is angled a bit closer to the crossmember. I have a shutoff solenoid under the car right at the bottom of the tank; solenoid is operative as I can blow into the inlet and it opens well when power is applied. Upon removal of the 'pinch' clamp on the outlet from the tank, I have no fuel flow. (I know the tank has at least 4 gallons in it as I initially thought I'd run of gas.) I think I'll have to remove the tank and go from there. I've read that apparently the baffles can let go and possibly fall above the outlet. I believe the car has always been garaged. Is it worth trying to remove just the outlet fitting and trying to 'root out' the plug there? (I know this has to come out anyway if I decide to take the tank out.) If the tank seems 'a mess', is a replacement tank the way to go or have it opened up and repaired. Anybody got any ideas/advice? Thanks in advance.
