Problems with Mikuni fuel pump

I installed a high volume vacumn mikuni fuel pump and after running for a short time the valve stuck causing the pump to stop working. I installed another one and it did the same thing after a short time. I am now on my third with very little time on it. Has any one had a similar problem?

Dam I just installed that pump after going through 3 electric pumps in a short time. Think I will put the stocker back in. Always goes out at a bad time then you have to run into town from shop to shop. AARRGGHH

the valve that stuck is the little check valve that allows vacumn to go thru
