Can someone please tell me about the fuel pump operation? The manual for my 76 280Z says if you disconnect the starter (S) terminal and turn the ignition switch to start - you should here the fuel pump running. I tried this and the pump would not come on. However, the car will start and idle fine. Can't drive it for other reasons (body work in progress), so I don't know if it would do OK under normal driving conditions. These are the questions I have: 1) Is it possible for the car to start and run without the fuel pump operating? 2) If the answer to question #1 is NO, then does the fuel pump run constantly when the car is in operation, or does it just come on intermittantly.
