  1. I’ll try taking the gas cap off. I cranked it for like 30 seconds in 10 second intervals. I don’t know what the stock type filter is like but I’ll try to source one. thanks
  2. Fuel line re-route. Thought I read somewhere that these fuel filters need to be horizontal, so I rerouted like this to eliminate that as a factor.
  3. Old pump with arm broken inside
  4. Ok, so first I filed the eccentric down smooth. I got the new airtex pump installed with the spacer. The previous new pump arm snapped off clean and didn’t leave any parts in my timing chain section that I couldn’t retrieve. This new pump has the inlet and outlet in different directions so I had to route my gas line a little different than it was. Tried to start it and nothing. Check the pump outlet and nothing is pumping out. Super confused. Guess I’ll pull the valve cover again and see if anything has changed since trying to start it... idk why this
  5. Dang, you wouldn’t happen to have one I could buy off you would you? tried ordering but says it can’t ship to my address in CA. gives me like 15 reasons why it might not be able to, but no definitive answer to why. Hmm.
  6. The first one just stopped pumping and that is the one in the pic I posted... The second one fell apart and looked like the pump in the upper-most picture you posted.(with the bolts holding it together). Is there somewhere that sells hitachi ones?
  7. Here is the arm comparisons... apparently the arm didn’t just come disconnected, but snapped in half... the new, broker arm is on top of the old one.
  8. Pretty sure it wasn’t original.
  9. I understand that, I was saying that because someone said that it might be loose if I removed the head at some point. And this is a new pump. ok so I just went over to the truck (across town where it broke down) and pulled the valve cover. The fuel pump arm came completely disconnected and fell down by the timing chain. The spring too. I’m gonna go over with a retractable magnet and fish them out. Wondering what may have caused this? I’ll have to compare the arms, and maybe just use the arm off my old pump. Do you think the gouge in the eccentric could have pushed the arm a
  10. The spacer is there. I’m not sure that the arm came off, I was just speculating since I don’t have fuel pumping again.. I did compare them, but prob not careful enough. I know the arms didn’t have identical shapes but seemed to end up in the same location as far as the eccentric goes. When I get off work today I’m gonna pull the valve cover and check it out. Thanks again
