Help Diagnosing Possible Fuel Pump Issue
Got the Riot fired up and have been driving it around a little. I have maybe an hour on it. It has sat for over a year. It ran strong this first hour, including full throttle assaults. But just now it started to have issues.
When I first got it running, when turning on the ignition, the fuel fuel was REALLY noisy. I'm used to a noisy fuel pump in a Redline, but this is really high pitched and so noisy that I can hear it over the motor!
In addition, just recently, the engine runs really weak anything over 4500rpm. And if I keep it floored, it nearly kills the engine.
As for idle it is running slow and then it will pickup and then run slow......and all the time the fuel pump keeps changing tone slightly up and down. But always noisy.
Fuel pump issue? Fuel filter clogging things? Do these fuel pumps just die off right away or do they act like this as they are dieing?
