Re: 67 289 hesitates and eventually stalls when warm

Could be as simple as an air leak between the tank and the pump. Or a linked rubber hose. Or a bad fuel pump. Or a filter improperly placed between the tank and the pump.

Funny thing is I upgraded my #11 deluxe report for the Elite one. Now that new report ( emailed to m...
