getting moreflow from fuel pump

So whats the deal with the fuel pump ? can only get about a gallon per 2.5 mins . checked for kinks but found none , pressurizes up good but then just pumps real slow . is there a flow control on the pump or other trick to getting fuel out . maybe a clogged screen if there is one

There could be some garbage in the tank that is blocking the fuel flow !
Is there a petcock or on - off manual valve on the tank ? It can be blocked .
Could be a hiden filter ?

"They" used generically.
Refers to pumps used in general in TH's that have a fuel station option.

Well i guess you can remove the fuel pump and get the make and part # off of it. Google your find and get the specs. If it says it is a 1.5 gal per minute get a bigger one. If it says it is a 4/5/6 gpm it's no good.
Happy motoring.
