I drove the car 50 miles, went back home and garaged it.
After 3 weeks, I started the car.
It will start over and over but will not stay idling.
I checked the initial fuel pressure....i'm just getting 12psi....it should be 60psi when you turn the ignition (without starting it).

So I know it's the primary fuel pump. There are two fuel pump in the V8. Which one is the primary --- the 1st fuel pump or the last fuel pump in the hose?

I replaced the FP last year using Walbro 225 - I bet this walbro is stvp!d chinese made which I can't identify from the genuine.:mad:

Genius!
Yep, I got it out and the rubber hose split !

Thanks Vulcan
IMHO (based on other older cars) at least look at the pumps and filters while at it..

Gates 27093, one-foot piece costs approximately $29 at O'Reilly. Still not cheap, but you only need a few inches.
