i have a 1989 440 jag with about 2700 miles. ran it all last year and ran great. this year went to start it and it would idle fine but when i go to give it gas it will only bog, and it will back fire once in a while. I have put a new gas filter, plugs, fresh gas, cleaned carbs, checked exhaust and air box for mice nest. I noticed that the gas was just barley running into the new fuel filter. tested the fuel pump and thought it wsa bad, bought a new full pump repair kit. still bogs. changed all the fuel lines thinking there might be a craked line i was mising. still boging. the fuel is still just barley coming into the filter, so i am not sure if the fuel pump is working or not. any other suggestions. thanks

Take the fuel line off the carb and pull it over. Fuel should shoot out of the line a foot or so, if not, the pump is AFU or there's a blockage in the tank.

Maybe there is a hole in the impulse line going from the engine to the pump.The fuel filter in backwards,or the tank vent blocked. I hope this helps!
