i bought a solid state SU pos gnd pump a few years back.  once i had ascertained that it functioned correctly, i took it off to 
use as a spare.  it sat in my trunk(boot) for a couple of years until i needed it.  would not pump fuel.  checked it all over and 
could see nothing wrong.  finally sent it to the guy in walnut creek that put a new diaphram in it.  put it back on and all was 
well until i went on a long car club trip and discovered that the fuel pump would give out at 2900 rpm.  drop below that and 
it worked perfect.  made it home and put the old 20-30 year old points type back in and now carry the solid state as a 
spare.  it will get me home but it sure browns me off that it will not work properly.  since i have lots of old SU pumps around 
that i clean up and rebuild i should be able to stay on the road for a while.
