XF dies while on road

My girlfriends 1988 XF six (not injected) just dies and will only restart when primed with petrol down the carbie or aerostart or some similar product. Is this a carbie problem or do I need a new fuel pump or something. If fuel pump where is it and is it easy to change?

fuel pump/filter/line would be my guess. take off the filter if it is full of crap replace it, try to blow back through the fuel line. I know on the EA that when i turn the key to acc I can hear the fuel pump start dunno about XF though
