Welcome to the forum, not sure about that.

There was a guy on fleabay that was selling a fuel pump rebuild kit but I can't seem to find it right now, I'll keep looking.

I had this same problem 2x in the past 5000 miles..Once last eyar in the Rockies and once in the extreme heat of southern Illinois (100+).
I concluded it was the weak full pump syndrome as I had purchased and installed a NEW vacuum petcock asembley, as well as fuel filter and gas cap rubber gasket....The only thing left was the fuel pump....
The above e-mail is the address to a man from texas who sells a better pump and rebuild kit for your wing...he only has a few left so you may want to e-mail him asap... About $130 and you will have a new pump and some accesories so you can rebuld and upgrade your fueel pump assembly.
I wil be doing mine this weekend ...I have had no additional problems since the heat episode a couple of weeks ago...but I don't want to ait for it to strand me in the middle of nowhere...I have already invested the money in the parts so in they go...

Good Luck

I spoke with a dealer when returning from our Nassir 4 trip about this heat issue with the 1500's. I was at his place on another matter. He was aware of it and suggested when the false tank was off to lay/place some heat absorbent material over the area under the gas tank. It was his opinion that the gas boiled at 1/4 tank in the air temperature heat and working motor. This causes fumes being sucked up and the motor dying...Made sense to me after what we experienced in Florida.

ob1jeeper , ditto about Wingsconsin and what he said about the fuel boiling . Have seen posts about fuel starvation at high altitudes etc.??? The fuel boiling seems to fit this nagging problem.
