My thoughts too, Doc. To remove it from the connectors, this may sound strange, Don't pry on the plastic locks with a screwdriver! Grasp the wires on either side if the connector and pull steady and hard, they will come apart. The Module can be tested at Autozone, Advance Auto, and other stores for Free! My 1977 CJ 5 uses the same one. I have found that they should test it over and over 5-8 times (sorta warms 'em up up or something). If it fails the latter tests, replace it. Dog-gone for sure, test the new one the same way, before you walk out the door and spend the next 2 days pulling your rig apart and your hair out!---Please return and let Doc and I know the deal!

The problem had to do with sometype of filter on my float in the tank it was cloged. So my husband removed it and put it back together, just I dont know if we should run it without the weird filter and can't find one either

Mr. Fuel Tank Pick-up Tube Filter, 'Round Here, Some people call it a "Sock". Surely the Dealer can get one for you! I messed with one that just would not not pick up the Last 1/3 of a tank when it got that low. Even though the thing looks like fine screen wire, shoved up on the tube on a Jeep CJ. It must have some sort of suction qualities about it, even with the Open Screen. We found his swimming around in the fuel tank, after it had fallen off, when we reattached it, it picked up all of the fuel, like it should. Regardless whether it's-a-working to it's full potential or not, I would make absolutely sure you have an inline fuel filter before the carb (maybe even 2, a larger one before you reach the original. You sorta already know what kind of cr. Ap is in the tank!The Medic
