1987 5KCSTQ, fuel pump hints requested

Definitely try giving the bottom of the tank a solid whack with a 2x4.  This
has worked for me on other vehicle makes.  Be warned though, that if it does
work, you are still on very borrowed time and eventually this 'fix' won't
work anymore.
Unfortunately when my 5ktq pump died, it was totally dead and couldn't get
it going at all.

good luck
