Default Fuel pump testing

Hi all,

My buddy has a 1993 d150 318. The starter's fine and is turns the engine over well, but no fuel is getting to the engine. We can pour fuel down the throttle body (i might be using the wrong term here, I have very little experience working on gas engines), step on the gas, and it'll pop off briefly, and then starve for fuel.

I'm guessing that the fuel pump is shot, but I'd like to test it to make sure. What is the best way to make sure it's working or not?

Jersey Devil will become famous soon enough

Check your fuses first.
If fuse is ok under the hood on the fuel rail there will be a fitting that looks like a tire stem type fitting you will need to put a pressure Gage on it.
Its also you have a very badly clogged fuel filter you may want to check/ change that first.
Let me know how you make out.
