    Default Found a small bit of tissue when changing suspected fuel pump

    I finally got a chance to take alook at my car after it was recovered with a suspect fuel pump failure as died during use and was told low pressure. I got to work changing my fuel pump over weekend on a SRI 150. During the replacement I noticed the fuel filter to pump section on the old pump had a block with a small amount of tissue bunged in. I removed the blockage and tryed to turn over car but no luck. I think this bit of tissue might of been used to stop pipe spilling during filter change which is my school boy error :-( Ive also noticed my second hand pump has a woodruff key but my old one didnt. Its defiantely of the same car so I take it my pump is a modified version as it looks identical except woodruff key. Iam just not sure what to do and cant afford to send it to a garage really. Would there be are in system or would the blockage make pump fail. Iam going to finish changing pump over and try a start if no luck where do I go from there :-( Really want to fix it as like my vectra and the forum. Cheers
