Ok, definitely no sound from the fuel pump. Are the alfetta pumps unique or can I replace with a similar bosch?
Ah, papa, you know your writing! I just located my writing schematics and it's a direct link from the pump to the #8 fuse to the inertia switch. I'll check all that tomorrow but if it comes to needing a new fuel pump, do you know if there are alternatives. It seems the alfa pumps are hard to find and expensive--hoping there is a pump which will work that I can find at the pick a part, which means a bosch pump used on jetronic from the 80's. Might have to get creative and throw on an old BMW pump. What regulates the pressure on the alfa? Is it similar to bosch where the pump provides a higher pressure than needed and then something regulates it or does the pump provide the working pressure?First thing I'd check is fuse #8 followed by the inertia switch in the engine bay.
The 77s originally had the pressure relief valve (or bypass valve) within the 3 port fuelpump (the 3rd port being the return to the fuel tank). Earlier cars have the bypass valve in the main fuel filter assembly located in the engine bay.What regulates the pressure on the alfa?
