  • Weber kit

    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 might have been plugged until I took my fuel line off to check flow through all screens and inline filter ahead of the pump. I have plenty of flow so for now I just bypassed the pump. I was looking online and noticed some of these pumps are specifically for in tank or external of tank. So I'm wondering if my pump is supposed to be for an in tank application.

    Dennis just isolate the electrical connections on the pump get a catch can and a 12v battery doesn't take much and see if it pumps even dry you should hear it run, did you get the manifold and all of the linkage? If you look at my thread heater install you can see my weber install as well. I mounted my pump inside the frame rail with the bolt that holds the hood bumper. If you need something or to talk pm me and I can help you if you wish.

      Did that and can hear the pump has more sound at first when cold, barely noticable sound after running awhile. And of course no fuel pumped out. It was getting worse over time and finally gave up towards the end. My pump was mounted the same as yours Chief, except on a 28-29 there is a 1/4" bolt that goes through the fender and splash apron and then the frame that I used. The 28-29 has a hood shelf that holds the hood bumper.

    I am getting ready to shop for a pump. What model comes with the Weber kit?

      In tank pumps usually have a pick up sock attached to them..External pumps have an inlet and outlet connection / inline

      Do not buy an Airtex pure junk.

      Carter, Delphi, Holley are better


      Below is some info i had saved,, figured to post it up...
      carter P4259 is a vane style pump 6v pos or neg hook up.

      a P60504 is a rotor style 12v

      then there are the solenoid style pumps which seem to be the least reliable IMO

        Here’s my Weber setup. Run 1.5 PSI for best results. Line from tank goes through a filter then a pump and into a Holley regulator with a gauge. I’ve run countless combinations including EFI. Weber is far and away the best....running this combo on two A’s. Redline has the adapter to use the round air cleaner

          In the late 70's I owned a Renault R12-GTL and it had an AC bellows style electric pump. I went through at least 6 of those pumps before I finally got rid of that car.
          Now I have 2 Holley 12 volt and one Carter 6 volt rotary vane style pumps.
          No parts inside these pumps that can be damaged by the crap gas.
          The Holley pumps put out 1 to 2 PSI if I run them on 6 volts with a 1 ohm 50 watt resistor in line.

            My Weber kit didn’t come with a pump. I used one of the Carter kits I got from Snyder’s. Still using the same pump with my 97.

              Yes, I am running one of the new ones made in England. It was re-jetted by my engine builder.

              I can't really say I notice much difference in the Stromberg 97 and the Weber. My engine builder just told me that it was more difficult to calibrate the Weber to the engines he builds. Since he was doing the calibrating, and it was going to cost me more for him to calibrate the Weber, I just went along with his recommendation and bought a 97. I have been happy with it.

            I'm pretty sure it's the Carter pump 12 volt Mitch has in the link at Amazon, that has failed. My Weber kit was complete with pump, filter, fuel lines, throttle linkage and choke cable. The previous owner had cut 1" out of the throttle linkage and obviously wasn't getting full travel.

              The fuel pump I have looks like the one pictured above. I haven't had any problems with it. Going on 5 years now.

            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??

            Water pump
            by Fordfordora
            Attached are pictures of the water pump that was on my car when I purchased it. Is this an aftermarket pump? if so, will a rebuild kit work on this. I kind of like the idea of having a grease reservoir handy.

            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

            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...

            Anybody know what this water pump could be for? I thought maybe an overhead conversion but I can't find any that use a pump like this.

            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...
