I'm very sorry to admit that I'm loving your misfortune for really making me think.wdollie6 wrote: ↑Fri Oct 25, 2019 5:34 pm…Fastback runs, will idle all day, but the pressure only reads 28 psi when the car is off, while running it is pegged to the max of the gauge. I will play with it again on Monday, after I install the NOS muffler that I just received from CA. Also am sending my distributor to TASB for a rebuild as it loose to say the least.
My brain can't find a logical reason for this, but I kinda want to stretch my reality and ask for a voltmeter readings at the pump terminals, engine off and at high idle. Really shooting in the dark there though…
A web search of E2000 fuel pump turns up many owners unhappy with it. I have used the VW bus fuel pump and matching filter on several D-Jet Type 3 cars with good success when the original 3-nipple pumps were not available. The plastic Y is eliminated and it is run in a counter-clockwise loop just like an injected bus.
If anybody rebuilds OG Type 3 pumps, I have a core you can have for shipping.
Have you confirmed the pressure oddities with another gauge?
