I've had my '69 Junior sitting in storage for the last couple of years and would like to get her running again.
I've soaked the carbs for a few days in carb cleaner, despite them not being gunked up at all (bone dry though). The engine turns over smoothly and when spraying a bit of brake cleaner in the Webers, she wants to fire right up.
But: no fuel. I'm not a complete dolt (I feel the need to mention this since I did leave a 105 GT sit for a couple of years after all) and normally would work my way from the tank to the front and probably find some obvious issue.
At this time however the car is parked in tight
, so I figured I'd check here to see if there are any usual suspects regarding 105 fuel delivery. Even removing fuel lines from the pump and regulator looks like it'll take some acrobatics.
Here's what I know: fuel in the tank, Fispa fuel regulator bowl is bone dry.
What I've tried: cranked her over for a couple of minutes, I'd think in this time I should at least see a bit of fuel in the regulator? I'm hoping someone will tell me how horribly inefficient the mechanical pump is at cranking rpm and to just keep trying.
While I'm at it, my regulator looks like a Fispa FRB 11, anyone know if the fuel pump is still an original OEM unit? The new replacement pumps looks different. Are there rebuild kits available for mine?
And a few pics of the car before I stored it:
