problem solved

I am thankful for the help and advice that I recieved from the Forum and I'll share what the problem was.

The lift pump.

It was good to go through the minor component diagnosis (filters, tank screen, hoses, pressure valve spring) to make sure that the simple things were correct first. Turns out that the lift pump was siezed and the IP was the only thing that was sucking fuel. No wonder it was starving.

Switched out the lift pump with a part from Mercecessource and it's been golden ever since.

Now on to the other various minor issues, but at least the car is reliable for my son to drive locally.

Thanks again.
