The chances are very strong that you have gunged up the fuel pump.
It is a real design flaw - a filter after the pump. On the advice of
John Cheal of Wilson Carburettors here in Melbourne (a real SU expert) I
installed an in-line filter between the tank and the pump on mine and it
needs changing regularly. The installation of a $2 filter protects a
pump worth $300 or so.
It only takes a few flakes of rust to stuff up a pump and you cannot
rely on petrol stations to have clean tanks.....
I did the same with my P6 - moved the filter from after the pump to
Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.
