69 camaro 350. Noticed a noise from fuel pump. Thought it was one of the belt driven assemblys, but by placing a long wooden drift to my ear and on all components, the fuel pump was the source of the noise. It is not very loud but it is noticable w/ the hood open. Any ideas on what is failing in the pump. Noticed fuel consumption increased lately, however not smelling gas in the oil, but the engine pulls 17" of vacuume at idle and may sniff trace gas out of the block ( beyond the sensitivity of my nose).
Any tips on replacement unit. Thinking of the GM replacement,(it has operated >30yrs). ANy experience, tips in the repacement procedure of the fuel pump is greatly appreciated.
