Default Samarai stopped running

My '87 1.3L (JA) Samarai was very difficult to start when cold, but started and ran fine when warm. I wasn't sure that the fuel filter (mechanical) was the problem, but it was 23 years old so I replaced it with a new one. Now it won't start or run at all. Before replacing the new pump, I cleaned the mating surface, used a new gasket, and turned the engine to move the pump rod back into the head housing as far as possible. The new pump mated snug and I tighted the bolts and ensured that the inlet, return, and outflow lines were correctly connected and clamped. When the starter turns the engine over, I see no fuel flow from the pump outflow port. I didn't check the fuel filter, but it was working ok before the pump was changed. Anyone have ideas on this problem ? Of course, the new pump might be bad, but I'm thinking it might be more probable that I've overlooked something.

I'd check your fuel supply line for a crack first. Could be it had a small one that opened up when you changed the pump and moved things around. Now it's sucking air instead of fuel.

Check the wiring.... Its always the wiring.
Connectors get corroded it happens. Or is the pump mechanical in nature?

Default Problem solved

The problem was the new fuel pump. I replaced fuel line hoses, clamps, and fuel filter, but the problem persisted. No suction at all on the pump inflow port. I put the old pump back on and the the fuel filter reservoir started to fill when I cranked the engine, and the engine started moments later. The new pump has a warranty, but its most likely worthless when the makers or distributors of the pump are confronted with the actual prospect of having to make good on it.

depends on where you bought it. Some companies are very good about warantee repairs and refunds.
