Hello John. My name is ***** ***** apply voltage directly to the fuel pump and start the engine?Can you post the engine serial number please?Some models had an issue with the fuel pump circuit in the ECM sending no voltage to the fuel pump.

Yes I can apply power directly to the pump via a battery and the pump runs. I started this project by putting a new 600 holly on. If I apply power to the pump from the battery it pumps fuel to the carb. It starts but will not continue to run. I can pump the throttle and try again it starts then stops. I can do this over and over but wiill not run.
