Phil and fastE -- Thanks for the info!
While it is possible that the mechanical pump has failed, the engine and the pump only have 200 miles on them, so it is not likely.
The symptons of vapor lock are indistinguishable from a weak pump, as I recall, and vapor lock is a common problem at high altitude. Carter (Edelbrock) carbs seem particularly suceptible to it, too.
I've had an electric pump on other old cars, and typically mounted them back at the tank and allowed them to push the fuel up to the mechanical pump.
And yes, they were noisy (click, click, click)!
Does anyone have any recomendation as to which brand and capacity pump I should buy?
