    Anyone had a hard time starting the 240's after changing either or
    both main fuel pump / filter??
    A hard enough time that you thought fuses/relays/etc were faulty?

    I've not changed the "main" pump, but I've changed the "in tank" pump &
    filter changed several times with no problems. Out of curiousity, did
    you use a "new" Volvo pump ???

    Got new main and in-tank pumps and filter from who
    claims all parts are OEM.
    The car runs fine (see post:

    (titled "87 240dl start problem #3)

    I am still wondering what happened. I would hope it was a priming
    issue, since the filter and main pump were "empty" when starts were
    attempted. We are in day #10 and the car starts immediately, runs
    great, with no spooky things going on.
    Thanks - Tyler
