Noise may be normal or may indicate that the fuel pump may be about to go. What happens is that the brushes wear a deep groove in the commutator and then it stops. Tap it on the head with a screwdriver handle and it will go again for a while. Good luck Charles. jel1 wrote in message ... >I have a 1988 900 that is making a whirring sound from the back by the fuel >pump.
