So, try this on for size.

I retime the points, I bumped the starter until it was on cyl 1 then gapped points at .014.


So I go to start the car, and hear a pop noise, come to find out, the fuel hose from tank to pump (which I just changed because it was leaking like a siv) explodes.

Excuse me?

So I guess I'll be ordering a fuel pump maybe? I don't even know.
I wish I could help.  Unfortunately I know nothing of D-jetronic or your car.  But I truly do feel your anguish.  I've also had inexplicable problems of my own.  So, I offer my moral support.  Good luck!

It should not explode... that side of the pump is not pressurized. Did you change all hoses back at the pump and attached the exploded hose at the wrong end of the pump by mistake?

No I only changed the down tube from the tank to pump.

That's why I'm so confused,  where is that pressure coming from?

I have some air hiss out the gas cap sometimes but I'd think the cap would blow off first before that hose.

It sprayed the rest of my fuel out to, like it was still pressurized.


I appreciate the moral support. I have 3k into this car after owning it for 2 months, and have drove it home and no further.

No, I think the hoses goes first. You have another one going in to the tank, the return line, check that to. Do a test. Put a rubber glove or something instead of the gas cap. See if it building pressure in the tank. You might have to change the gas cap.
