    Sorry. I'm actually wanting to know if this runner is worth buying, 1200.00. It's in great shape but he can't get it running. He figured it might be flooding out. It died at a stop light. He says it will only start when he unplugs the fuel pump, I guess the fuse, and it will run until the fuel is out of the line. Does that make since?

    It runs great when you disconnect the fuel pump ? So it runs bad with the fuel pump connected?

    It will not start because I think it's flooding out with the pump working. It only starts and runs for a few minutes until the fuel in the line runs out. I'm just trying to figure out if this runner is worth buying. Craiglist Juneau alaska, green 92 Toyota 4runner, 1200.00

    Yes!! That sounds right. The owner mentioned something like that when I talked to him on the phone. Any kind of advise would be awesome. I would really like to buy it if it's worth it.
