We have discussed this, but I can't remember where . . . Fuel Delivery Forum?
Anyways, the factory fuel pumps had a cut-off valve that prevented this heat soak fuel expansion pressure increase. I have battled exactly the same thing with Chloe's junky Barzilian pump, and have a used Pierburg factory-issue fuel pump that shall get rebuilt and installed.
I think it was in 1971 and later buses and beetles that had some crazy bypass/cut-off dangling off the pump:
How can I make this information stick?
How can we obtain these factory solutions, install, and show the world that they work?
