Is your fuel filter before or after the pump? It should be before. If it's not getting through the filter there won't be anything for the pump to pump! (I know you know this, just stating the obvious)

It's before, but stuff can still get through on occasion. The trash clogging the filter was mostly sediment, and it's small enough to potentially get past filter mesh.

In my mind I'm imagining something like this.

What is causing you to imagine that?

threads are better with pictures. That one is funny.

When the fuel pump went out on my 78 it poured fuel everywhere.

Be sure all the lines are free of rust before installing the new fuel pump.

Here's a picture of my '57 Karmann Ghia (coming soon). If you do a google image search for "57 karmann ghia" it's the second result.


Here's my '58 Beetle (more or less as it sits now).


My '62 panel bus (recently departed) driving through Times Square on our honeymoon (wife jumped out at one light, took some photos, and jumped in at the next light).


And yours truly painting a chassis (I think) and demonstrating appropriate lung safety for some reason.


There isn't really much photo worthy so far in my opinion, but if there's something someone would like to see I'll gladly take a few. It's just a stock engine compartment and a bunch of soiled latex gloves with a few tools scattered around.

like the pictures of the VWs. We've got some VW fans here in the club. A couple (ex?) Ghia owners too...

If any VW/Porsche volk need some assistance with anything air cooled, feel free to hit me up. I may not be too hip to cruisers yet, but I can do anything on a VW top to bottom in my sleep and have been ITCHING to play with them (the 40 is to no small degree a VW-wrenching surrogate). I have most of the special tools (I bought out an old shop with some friends), and potentially have access to those I don't have (still looking for a good king/link pin reamer set if anyone knows where to find them). I wouldn't be my first choice for a headliner, and I hate the sanding side of body work, but I've done nearly everything that can be done on nearly every vintage of nearly every model (I'm a little thin with fuel injection, later 412s, 911s, and Hebmllers, though I have had intimate contact with all of them). The club I started back in Dallas (Das Klub) had work days once a month to a few a week depending on weather and what needed to be done. It's without a doubt the best team building, best learning experience, and most fun humanly possible.

That said, if anyone needs some wrenching help (on anything really), please hit me up; especially the really heavy duty stuff. If anyone wants to rebuild axles, engines, trannies, what have you, I may not be able to contribute much in the way of direct experience but I can hand tools and read manuals with the best of them! Likewise, if anyone has experience tuning the carbs on these, I'm going to be seat-of-my-pantsing it without a wide band or a performance baseline and I would really appreciate the help. If no one volunteers, I'll likely be taking it to RMC and paying out the nose (unless anyone has any alternative recommendations).

The pics are cool BTW. looks like you take good ones, also dig the vw stuff. We have been toying with getting a bug of some flavor for a while now.
