I have had a second fuel pump go out in as many months on my '73 MGB.  
The SU brand pump failed by becoming totally silent.  This one (a 
plastic-bodied one from Seven) will click once for voltage applied, and 
once when it is removed.  It doesn't "throw over" though.  I got home 
yesterday by clicking the ignition on-off to fill the float bowls (5 
miles, in traffic.  Yeesh).  The SU responded to tapping for a while 
before it completely died.  This one doesn't, and I am afraid to hit it 
too hard because of the plastic, anyway.

This is starting to look chronic!  Any ideas?  Thanks!
