Fuel pump woes

So I ran my truck out of gas accidentally (whoops) and then I had no gas anywhere through the system. I dumped three gallons of gas in and it would not get fuel into the pump. Well then I poured gas into the carb and she would start, but not run once the gas was out of the carb. So I poured gas into the pump outlet and it would pump it through the filter just fine. But it will not get a solid stream through the inlet of the pump

Re: Fuel pump woes

You need more time for the FP diaphragm (that's old and weak) to pull the fuel from the tank.

Remove fuel line BEFORE fuel pump, BLOW through tank until fuel comes out at the pump. Then put your fuel lines back and go about your day

I have a large skid plate at the front of my truck. Is it possible to unhook on the outlet side of the fuel pump and blow it until it gets there?
