    Friends samurai, when purchased, has a electric fuel pump but enginewas
    converted by putting on a carburetor. motor idles and runsfailry well
    until you get to higher speed. The engine then bogsdown and dies out.
    What are my options? He has had thecarburetor rebuilt and there is a in
    line fuel reg. also installed onthe fuel line. I think it was a
    shadetree mechanic that made theswitch before friend bought the
    vehicle. Any tips to fix theproblem would help. This is a deer lease
    vehicle and not drivenon roads.

I just ran into this problem as I was rebuilding my 1.3 engine. When you put the mechanical pump back on, you have to be sure the rod that pushes against the pump is all the way in, check this with your finger, you should only feel about 1/4 inch of the rod, if you should feel more, turn the crank with a wrench until it goes in all the way. Then put your pump on making sure that you start both mounting bolts before you begin to tighten, as you tighten gently pull back on the top of the pump, so the lever will line up with the pumps push rod in the head. Your pump will work fine after that.

Unplug the line after the pump meaning not the one coming from tank but the one from pump to carburetor, then crank the jeep and haved some one tell you if fuel pump is pumping at that line, if it does then your problem is the carburetor and not the pump,
i will apreciate the ranking, thank you and good luck

    I know this is old but it will happen again to somebody I'm sure. Usually when your pump doesn't work after being replaced it means you need to pull it out and very carefully align the little arm with the pushrod that comes out of the head. (Don't ask me how I know)

89 Suzuki samurai fuel issue


sounds like the electric fuel pump is failing the backfire is a result of a really lean fuel mixture, it is hard to say if u did any damage, most likely not because the pump is inside a anti-slosh baffle
