It's the transfer pump. Try running up a 4,000 foot
mountain at 6% grade and outside temperature at 120F.
If it vapor locks before you get all the way to the
top, then it's the transfer pump. Do the vega pump
trick. It's only $30.00, USD of course. There are
instructions online to see the fix. Search yahoo for
the pix and detailed instructions.
