I finally determined that the fuel pump on my 82 SS is just not putting out any more. Is it worth the added expense to go to an electric fuel pump or should I just stick with a new mechanical? I have not torn it down yet to know if the cam is worn on the old one. I just know that I am not getting good fuel pressure at the carb.

The mechanical pumps are so cheap and reliable I would just replace the old one.

Agreed.

I assume that youve already checked the screen at the tank pickup and the check valve for blockage?
