On my way to work today I almost ran out of gas before I could get to my favorite station for a fill up. It was spuddering and what not as I coasted to a stop. I filled it up and eased it out onto the road. It continued to spudder for a couple of blocks and tried to die, so I pulled off the road. It seemed to smoothe out after a few minutes so off I went again. I drove a few miles and it died again . I popped the hood and found that the fuel pump wasn't running. The power wire ran up to the drivers side of the motor, next to the distributer and attached to some sort of switch that appeared not to work with the ignition on? What is this switch? I will post pictures of it tommorrow if neccissary. My buddy stopped by and he suggested that it could be a oil pressure safety switch, but he wasn't sure. Where is the hot lead of the fuel pump supposed to hook to? Well, we temporarely wired the fuel pump wire to the battery to get me to work, where I disconnected it for now. The motor still spuddered some after getting the pump juice. Do you think that is a different problem or did I mess up my fuel pump by running it low on fuel? It is a Holley. Not sure of the part number yet. I am thinking that it is a seperate problem with water in my fuel or a clogged fuel filter. Sometimes it would run great and sometimes it would spudder. Sorry for the long post and I thanks in advance for any help.
