:beers:Thanks to all the help I've gotten from everyone at this site I finally got my starting issues worked out, but now the fuel pump is leaking gas. I'm running a newer generation 454(not sure how new) with a mechanical pump. It seems as though the rubber gasket by the inlet and outlet ports on the bottom of the pump may be the culprit. Should I just replace it with a new pump or find a new gasket? If I replace it, what would you guys recommend? I can't see any way of identifying what kind of pump it is or how old it is. Thanks for any and gee-whiz info. Chad.
