I few weeks ago I came to a stop driving home but managed to limp the car back. What a PITA. I saw zero fuel pressure. When I pulled the mechanical pump out I saw that the pushrod was bent. Some folks told me they never heard of it happening on the road and could have happened when the previous owner installed it. Made sense to me. I just got the car back together ( wound up doing motor mounts, tranny mount, etc. ) and I lost pressure about 5 miles from home.
If the pump is OK, can I test it by disconnecting the line to the carb, using my remore starter and spinning the motor with my finger over the outlet to see if it is pumping air? If ( I'm grasping for approaches now ) the rod is bent again, what can cause it? I have a new tank and did not take the sock off. Can I blow compressed air from the front and blow it off? I think its a short list to check but I'm very frustrated right now. Thanks.
