Do you know when the fuel filter was last replaced?.

Thanks for all the help from the forum especially from steinhnj and red64chevelle. Fuel test kit was installed and ran at +/- 30 PSI in idle, as soon as you drive and place a load on the pump and drops to 10 PSI or less then stalls. Could get the fuel filter off so I sprayed some PB Blaster on it and will attack it tomorrow after work. Learned a lot today. Thanks again.

Highly doubt fuel filter.. If you are getting a good 12 volts to your pump I see a fuel pump replacement in your future..don't forget to buy the 2 nuts and ferrules for the pump unit..and replace the fuel filter anyway..

Agreed, the fuel filter has never been replaced, so now i can mark it off my list of things to get done(once its off).
