fuel system problem
September 15, 2002 08:47PM
Regarding XKE 1970 ser. II OTS, Lt h drive
Won't run--since recently. I do have spark
'cause it fires w/ either starter. Had the fuel tank cleaned & sealed; took out the pickup tube & got out lots of black pieces & bits of sealant from sump bottom. Could these slimey pieces have clogged the fuel pump ? I do hear sounds from the pump & believe it runs. But do not know if it pumps adequet fuel. There is a filter in the glass bowl before carbs. I'll consider any suggestion since I am not knowledgable about aut mechanics.

Thanks to All

<HTML>I can remember looking at a fuel filter body on an E-Type and it was clear. Is yours clear? If so, you should be able to see if there is any fuel in it.

Look at the drawing at [www.web-cars.com] It'll help you locate the fuel filter if you don't already know where it is.

Do you hear a clicking sound when the ignition is turned on?

That crud you described could easily have clogged your fuel filter.
