It runs fine when it gets started, and never gives any problem after that. I can let it sit for a couple of days without problem, but if I go longer I will have a hard time starting it.
When I changed the pump a couple of years ago in California I was experiencing brief cutouts on long low hills. I haven't seen that happen since then, but I'm not sure if it was due the pump or changing my timing. I changed the timing, put premium fuel in it, and drove it back heavily loaded over the Sierras and Rockies without any further problem. Until I did that it didn't look like it would make it over the Sierras.
I wouldn't know about the volume of the pump supply. It had the same starting problem in California before I changed the pump, but I was starting it much more frequently then.
Come to think of it, I probably have never changed the timing, but I'm running mid-grade 10% ethanol in it now, the cheapest fuel we have here in Iowa, cheaper than low octane.
