anyone ever have stock fuel pump just quit while driving down the road?

The car was running fine and just quit,  would not restart,   I figured that maybe the gauge was broken and I had ran it out of gas,   So we pushed it to the gas station and filled the tank,  it only held 9 gallons so I wasnt out of gas. Fast forward car will not restart.  I pulled the air cleaner off and gave it some gas, but no fuel comes out of the carb.   The "eye glass" is about half full, but again no fuel spraying into the motor from the carb. 


Im guessing that mechanical fuel pump has died,  or i maybe it has something huge stuck in the fuel line?   Ive never had a mechanical pump die so this is the first for me.   Speaking of what causes one them to quit?

Sure. The diaphram will eventually tear and won't be able to pull fuel anymore.

If you have a paper type in line filter, it could have collapsed.

Check you oil level and content.  If the diaphragm is leaking you may end up with an oil pan full of gasoline.
