The previous owner of my GTV had a crappy Mr. Gasket plastic bodied fuel pump
hanging by a zip tie over the exhaust.
The brass fuel line fitting was lose and the pump was dribbling fuel.
Disaster waiting to happen!
It was the first thing I fixed when Idrove it home.

Anyway, the Facet fuel pump that Gordon recommended is ordered and a pressure regulator is installed.
Thanks all!

Installed today with a fresh filter, fresh hoses, correct fuel line clamps and a dial regulator set at 3 PSI.
Big difference in driveability.
Easier to start and no more annoying stumble / flat spot when I pull away from a red light.
Carbs are sync'ed so they were not to blame.
I think my old pump wasn't keeping bowls full and was due to be replaced.
