Can someone verify this?

I have a '76 280z, runs well and then there will be a sputtering and loss of power (happens at any speed and gear.) The car doesn't die, just sputters and jerks like it's fuel starved!
If I pull over, shut off the engine and re-start the
problem will be cleared up. I think the fuel pump is going - not maintaining enough pressure. Any similar problems/experiences out there?

Don,
I have an older Z but here are some other problems I've had that may be close....
Are you using 'good' gas- I use Aamco Ultimate? How do the fuel filter(s) look? Could there be trash in your tank.
I think you might see it more regularly if it were the fuel pump, especially under a heavy engine load.

Hope that helps. Let us know.
Thomas
