    I hadn't seen this before but my brother, 84zz4ss, tells me that it happens. It would still do 80 mph too! Bad casting I guess.

    It looks like Ya' stood on it ......
    Better check the engine oil for fuel - if the diaphram was damaged you could have been pumping gas in your crank case.

    That usually happens when someone is trying to install the fuel pump and the pushrod falls down then the pump arm gets hung up when you go to tighten the pump and it breaks.

    It has been on since January. If the rod was too low it should have broken sooner than 3 months. I always take the block off plate and pull the rod to grease it and shove it back in.

    Tom, I changed the oil at the same time, the diaphram was not broken. I would have noticed the oil spot on Friday morning, but the oak tree tassles covered it all up.
