fuel pump troubles?

hello,i got a 108-a 1972 280se 4.5...usually runs very well...it started running shitty on my way home...i got 1 block away,then it just crapped out-had to tow it 1 block home...i`m pretty sure it is fuel related...anybody here had fuel problems?...i just ordered a new fuel filter...when i pull the fuel lines to check the pump,i`ll replace the fuel filter then too...when i turn the key i hear the pump run for about 2 seconds...then nothing...i think fuse number 4 is for the electric fuel pump...and i`m wondering what else is involved as far as relays goes...anyways,i can`t wait to find out whats wrong[xx(]

RE: fuel pump troubles?
