You say the fuel pump starts briefly then stops, does it have an electric fuel pump? Please tell us what you have and the mods that have been done. I understand you have a 289 automatic in a 67, 2b or 4b carb, what brand carb, what cam, what exhaust, what cooling system, like stock, or electric fans, what ignition system like points and cond or pertronix or msd? Too much information is always better, than not enough, we will sift through it. From what you describe it has either a fuel starvation problem, or vapor lock, and an ignition problem. Good Luck.
