It seems that all my stories are about fuel pumps. I didnt realize that until I began writing them down. I guess I am just a Johna when it comes to fuel pumps.
In this case the repair didnt work....very long....
My friend was out to lunch in his 67 Dodge when the fuel pump failed. He connected the windshield washer to the carburetor and filled the reservoir with gasoline. It worked for about a mile before the entire system burst into flames...on the upper deck of an elevated highway.
He got out, removed the license plates, and walked away from the burning car.
