Hello Forum!! I am new to this site and hope to learn more about my 1958 GM 4104 Detrioit 6-71 engine!! The engine starts and runs strong , but every so often it shuts down while crusing down the road!! I was thinking it was mold or the like clogging the filters, because every time this happened , I would pull over, remove both filters and reprime the new ones and be on my way till it would do it again, in ten miles or 100 miles!!So I desided to remove all fuel,via a transfer pump and two filters in line(one was a fine screen in a clear housing), and never saw any mold or anything!! so now I need help because the last few times it shut don on me I noticed that the primary filter was always full of fuel at shut down and the secondary filter was half full, and i guess lost prime , and shut me down! I am thinking i am sucking air in the line some where after the primary filter!! any thoughts PLEASE!! Bob

Morning. Thanks for the responce. I have completed a vacuum test on fuel lines from the primary to the inlet side of fuel pump. It held a strong vacuum for as long as i kept it hooked up. Would that tell me i cant be sucking air? I even hooked up from fuel tank all the way thru both fuel filtees and fuel pump. (All dry, no fuel ) and held a vacuum there as well !! I am wondering if maybe the old flexable fuel lines could be collapsing!! Or maybe fuel pump is weak? I did a return fuel test , got half a gallon in 60 sec. at idle. Any thoughts ?? Thanks Bob

Fuel pressure at secondary filter is 10psi at idle and 65 to 70 psi at 1800 rpm , yes one of you hoses could have a flap in it ,usually at either end where the tail fitting screws in also check your flange fittings for damage to the seating area regards david
