<VV> Losing faith in mechanical fuel pumps

Guys I am listening with sympathy, but I have used exclusively mechanical pumps
for the last 24 years and still do. I have only replaced two in that time. I
have 5 Corvairs and all have mechanical pumps and all work just fine. I wish
we could find a cause/cure for this problem and get it fixed so those that
wanted mechanical pumps/stay stock as it were, could do so without fear of
failing all the time. Lets hope for the best.

I have had the same electric pump on my corvair for 10 years with no problems,
no mechanical pumps for me, if I did how would I have the pretty, plated plug at
the back of my engine compartment
