Some of you may recall my post a few weeks ago requesting assistance with a problem I was having with my BJ8 stalling and then restarting after sitting for a few minutes. Some suggested poor venting at the gas cap and some suspected an electrical problem, but most believed it was a faulty fuel pump. So not hearing the symptomatic whoosh when I opened the gas cap, and being democratic by nature, I opted to follow the majority opinion of replacing the fuel pump (which had been in service for 15 yrs). I do have a transparent inline fuel filter positioned before the carbs and fuel was visible but the level seemed low (although perhaps that's not a solid indicator) suggesting the pump was the culprit. Anyway, I replaced the fuel pump with a new original points type SU pump I had been keeping as a spare. Connected everything and turned the ignition key expecting to hear the reassuring ticking sound of a healthy pump. Nothing. Dead. A DC voltmeter showed current from the lead wire to the ground when the ignition was on, but nothing with the ignition off. So it was getting power. The engine turns over, but of course doesn't run. The instruction sheet included with the pump advised one to clean the points if the pump didn't work at first. So I pulled the cap off the end of the pump and cleaned both faces of the pair of points with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper. The pump still doesn't work. I still have power, but no function. I welcome your suggestions. Thank you.
