Hi all,

 I have a problem getting my B running (that sounds really original)!

 I drove it to a body & fender shop for dent removal and painting- in
 mid September.  I'm a merchant seaman and was gone for about two months.
 My wife went to pay the bill and drive the car home approx the 2nd week
 of Oct and the car wouldn't start.  It came home on  the end of a tow 
 When I arrived about mid-November, it would try to start; good starter
 action, I recharged the battery, but no THUMP THUMP THUMP from the fuel
 pump.  I checked for power to the terminal and it was there.   Soooo,  I
 figured the pump had crapped out.
 Well, I changed the pump out last night and nothing different occurred.
 So, has anyone been thought something similar to this?  
 If so, I'd really appreciate any pointers, tips, hints, better guesses, etc.
 I haven't rolled up my sleeves yet to really tear into this problem.  Thought
 I'd check with this list first.

 To put it in a word,   HHHHEEELLLPPP!!!
