Fuel pump dead?


New member
I had to replace my fuel pump on my 78 Westy because of it sitting too long with gas in it. I installed the new pump and changed the filter but I did not check the line coming from the tank. It turns out that it was clogged and was only letting a small amount of gas through. So it seems I basically ran my new pump dry and now it seems to be locked up. I ran wires from a spare battery directly to it and it did nothing but get very hot. Is there any help for it or will I have to put out another $180?
