sounds more like an idle timing issue.. have ya tried squeezing tha bulb when it starts ta die? that will usually tell ya if its fuel related or not...

No problem as he will surly send us a merican express number. It`s not about the money. I had a guy from Louisiana send me some fishing lures and a Fishing Man CD one time for helping him. roflmao

It empties the fuel filter when you pump it? Bulb on backwards?

if its emptin' that filter tha 'electric pump ain't gonna do any good.. should be pressure pushin' fuel to that filter from tha mech pump and/or bulb.. hard ta say whats happin' ona computer.. tha "bulb" should put fuel to tha mech pump, fill tha filter and vst.. only place for it ta go is thru tha mech pump (bad diaphragm) into tha block with bulb doin' what its supposed ta do... justa guess. never heard or seen anything like that so i'll jus stay in tha truck..........gl with it.
