  • Fuel Pump Issues

    Well here I am again. It has been awhile since I have been on here. I have a 57 Champion Sedan. I did have it running on a fuel line in a gas can. I know that there is an issue with the fuel line to the tank.

    Enough of that. I now have the brakes working including the parking bake. I am ready to take the car off of the jack stands and move into the garage. I went and bought a hose to operate as my fuel line to a gas can on front seat. That is when I discovered that the fuel pump is not working correctly. I took it off the car and noticed a LOT of sediment in the bottom of the glass bowl. I also noticed a slimmy residue in the opening on the side of the block. The car since I have owned it has always run off of a gas can and a fuel line to carb.

    Questions are what can this sediment be and is the slimmy residue something to be concerned about?

    Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
