Carter performance electric pump 72 Gallon per hour from Real Steel, part number BYP4070, got one on my 355 Chevy and has performed perfectly for the past 6 yrs. ;) :D :D

Carter pump for me too.

Available from here Repower (http://www.roadcraftuk.co.uk/index.asp?productID=FMP4070&display=main&Col_Category=Fuel+%26+Air&Col_SubCategory=Fuel+Pumps&Col_SubSubCategory=Electric)

Do you currently have an electric or mechanical pump?

Thanks boys :):)
Carter is what I have at the moment, I am assuming it has packed up as it use to make quite a loud humming sound now nothing, and of course car won't start :(
So before I order one what do you think :confused:
Thanks again charlie

I would...

Check the fuse.
Check you have power to the pump using a multimeter on the wires.
Check the earth lead connections to the pump.
Check the Pre-pump filter is clean (you do have a pre-pump filter I hope)
If it still doesn't work give it a bash.
If it still doesn't work, Replace

Also check that one of the connectors at the pump has not fallen off.
