MG MGB Technical - BGT fuel pump
I've got a problem with my '73 BGT fuel pump.
Car was stopped for 18 months. After that fuel pump was not audible, so I just removed it and test it outside. It's perfect whenever I connect it to a battery. I've tested the car's wiring and everything is also fine. However, pump when it's installed works some days and others don't. May be related to the pressure signal hoses?? Anybody had a similar problem?
Is this pump exactly as the mini uses?
|I would expect the points need to be cleaned/reset or replaced. SU pumps go through a phase when a sharp tap will re start them , and your removing it from the car had the same effect. If you leave it long enough even a tap will not start it and you have to do something .The SU pump on my Mimi Cooper looked identical to the one on the MG.|
|I already tried to tap it and it didn't work.|
Whenever a tap it fule is pumped, but the pump doesn't restart for itself.
|Yes it is the points. Remove the pump and either replace them or remove and polish with fine wet or dry paper.|
