Re: crealock34 fuel lift pump

Just a quick note on the lift pump.I also use a Walbro and learned the hardway that the pump has a fine mesh screen inside that will get clogged with crud from the bottom of the fuel tank.So pump runs-no output.Only After replacing the replacement did I smarten up.Since my lift pump is before the Racor I removed the screen from the pump and let the Racor get the crud.Of course also cleaned the tank.
Good luck,
