The car starts and idles fine but when you start to drive it. It shuts off after a couple minutes of driving. I've replaced plugs, wires, fuel pump, fuel filter, and had the carb rebuilt. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Do you
have the same problem?

Should there be air coming out of the bottom of a mechanical fuel pump?

I don't really have any experience working on a carbureted vehicle. But where it's leaking from is just a hole. I didn't know if air was suppose to come out of it or not. But thanks I'll change it and hopefully fix my problem

The FP produces vacuum and pressure on one side of the diagphram-it operates just like the brake booster-replace it-To rule it out perform perform a vacuum and pressure test on the fuel pump-
