Question type: Maintenance & Repair

67 BJ8 that suddenly quits running after fill-up.  Replaced most electrical and boiled gas tank.  After a few hours, starts again. Any suggestions?

just for grins and giggles leave the gas cap loose or off after filling up

The wonderful lucas fuel pumps are almost always to blame with my BT7s. Temporarily shunt around it with another fuel pump and see what happens.
