Is this possilble? I have a 75' with the stock F and mechanical fuel pump. Yesterday the engine died while accelerating and wouldn't start back up until the engine had cooled. I have a clear fuel filter before the carb and can see the pump is only pumping minimal fuel if not any when the engine is hot. When the engine is cold, the pump will pump enough fuel to fill the filter up completely and run as normal. I took it on a few short errands today without problem, but anything more than that, the engine dies. Is my fuel pump going out?
