I took the old Bendix fuel pump off my 2600 about 6 months ago when it started leaking and just put it back in today after having done other jobs on the car. There is no fuel in the tank. The pump runs for a few seconds and then stops until I gave it a gentle tap.

I'd prefer not to buy a new pump as this one is original to the car (it has the welded nut on the bottom cover rather than nut shape pressed into the cover) but i dont want to find the fuel system gives up on me!

It is normal for these pumps, when run dry, to be a bit stop/start and does the fuel act as a lubricant to keep them running constantly - or am I being over optimistic and so need to buy a new one?
