    Walbro Pump Issue - Timmayfest Fail

    So a friend and I were heading up to TimmayFest to check out the event and to meet Timothy and a few others. About an hour into the drive I start getting a few cuts in fuel??? We pull over and I pull some codes revealing that it is a low pressure fueling issue. I figured it to be the valve on the btm of the E85 Walbro and we decide it best to go home and fix it there. Well to my delight 71s goes down to 1 lane and all is stopped... Bad low pressure at idle FTL! Car dies. My friend then abandons his ISF and helps me push the 135 to the side of the road.

    Well I pulled the pump right there on the side of the road and MacGyvered that @$#% back together to get her home! Pulled it again and did what I hope to be a final fix.

    Here I am on the side of 71 fixing a pump in under an hr! lol

    And here is the fix that I would recommend to anyone else doing this in tank pump. I believe that this will keep the line from moving around and coming off the valve again...

    LOL, Thanks man. Funny thing is, I never have tools in this car... When I left in the morning I just had a strange feeling and threw them in the back. Glad I did!

    When terry first showed the DIY for this he already suggested using the zip ties there to hold the hose on, without them it would be really hard to keep it on. I have a company developing a drop in bucket but they are lagging. I got word another person is the community is actually almost done with one. Shouldn't be too much longer.

    I am holding off until someone makes a drop in. Too much BS comes along with the Walbro in tank upgrade. I have thought about the inline though.

    All I know is soon, but could mean next month or fall. Can't say who, but is a solid resource. I'm holding out to wait and see. Hopefully my LPFP will last. Think I'm not going the walbro route, to risky.
