thank you

that is very good. is it like it has a rev limit (jerking pop) on it or just no power to get up and move?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It runs good to a certain speed then starts backfiring and popping. It was running 50 mph then it's gradually been reduced so it won't go over 20 mph, maybe 1/4 trottle. You can increase speed over long distance but it's like it's straved for fuel, makes a sucking through systems air intake. Low end in garage and around back going 5 mph it's like nothing is wrong till you hit the gas.

check the fuel pressure output with a fuel pressure tester gauge. as a fuel pump that is not put out the proper pressure will have issue when trying to give the unit more throttle. do you have access to fuel pressure gauge?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No dice, but if I do get one what readings should I be looking how/where do you hook it up at? If it is, it's more than likely going to be a shop that tears into, I'm nowhere qualified at the wanting to do it myself lol

i understand about know your limits.

the fuel pump pressure should be 43 PSI

it will take a pressure gauge and the proper adapter to hook it in line with the fuel pump.
