Starving for fuel?
This past weekend, for the first time, after winding through the gears at 5000 rpm, the engine lost power in high gear. Feathering the pedal for awhile, it finally smoothed out and as long as I drove at a steady speed, it was fine. First thing I checked was the Russell in-line fuel filter. It's just a 3/4" disc of corrugated screening and it was clean, no dirt particles. I replaced the sending unit in the gas tank a few months ago and the rubber hoses are new. The fuel pump is an engine mounted mechanical stock style pump. Carb is a 780 Holley, engine is a 454, Edelbrock performer heads, hydraulic roller cam, 600 lift.
Any ideas what to do next?
