last week i bought another '82 4000 1.7l for $50. i was going to use it for parts until i realized it was in better shape than my other one. here is the problem; the previous owner (for the past 15 years) told me that the fuel pump was shot. he said that he pulled it out and cleaned it and then it would work for a couple thousand miles and then crap out again. i can easily take the fuel pump out of my current driver but i am afraid that it isnt the fuel pump at all but something else that will f**k up my good one. maybe the valves? or gnarly gunk in my tank?? anyone have this problem before? any suggestions? all i know is that the car doesnt run right now and that the fuel pump is the reason. if you could help me out i would be greatful.
