  • Fuel pump/regulator mounting

    I am installing a new fuel pump and regulator on my warmed up A motor. I am struggling with the locations and routing of everything. Does anyone have any suggestions keeping safety and looks in mind? Pictures would be great Thanks

    On my 1950 Studebaker I run a 12 volt Holley on my 6 volt battery with a 1 ohm 50 watt resistor in the power wire, so this puts out the perfect couple pounds pressure with no pressure regulator needed.

      Suppliers have a pump that's "hidden" inside the frame rail, at the center of the hood. Mounts on the hood bumper bolt.

        If you got the kit, pump and filter with fuel lines, there should have been a clamp with it that fits around the pump. I used the 1/4" bolt that holds the splash apron and fender just inside of my hood shelf.

        Here's how I mounted mine:
        Fuel pump is mounted with a clamp (that came with the pump) to the underside of the frame in the center near the hood bumper, the regulator is mounted to the frame using a bolt for the front hood latch.

        Weber kit
        by Dennis
        For those of you that have a Weber kit, was there any specifications included with the electric fuel pump included in the kit? I bought my Weber kit used at a garage sale earlier this year so I have no idea how old it is. I'm not sure if the 90 degree heat had something to do with it a couple days ago, but I'm sure my electric pump failed. At first I thought probably a screen or the inline filter...

        Fuel Pump
        by Beauford
        I run a stock '29 RPU and due to a hole in original tank I am running a tank in the bed of the truck. I had a cheap in line pump that died after 150 miles so stepped up to a Carter P4259. It works great but is noisy as hell. Any way to quiet this pump down??

        Wiring inline fuel pump and electronic fuel valve.
        by Beauford
        So until I can buy another tank I have a T'ish cylinder tank in the bed of truck. I have mounted the tank and have secured the fuel pump on pass frame channel close to tank as possible underneath. I have a 30amp inline fuse off the "-" side of battery to the fuel pump and grounded fuel pump. I will later tonight mount cutoff fuel valve near carb inside frame and I have a toggle switch to...

        Fuel pump opinions needed..
        by Beauford
        Well the painter was sanding a rough area on tank....gas came out. Rust911 took it down to the best solid metal but the tank was to far gone in one area so he is filling that and make it look good and paint. Instead of chasing down a '29 tank that's worth a damn I'm going with a bed mount tank in the truck...maybe a stainless round tank mounted to truck bed. How hard are fuel pump installs? Never...

        identifying true 1934 v8 fuel pump
        by ClaudeC
        My fuel pump has the number 523307 stamped on it and the sediment drain is only a screw and not a wing nut type? Any ideas?

        Water Flushing Pump
        by copgib
        Can someone who used a sump pump to flush there engines out for rust tell me what size motor your pump had. If I go this route I want to be sure it will be powerful enough to do the job. Thanks
