  • What's Up With This Fuel Pump?

    Looks like it's glowing from nuclear radiation, or it was buried in a cow pie for a couple years, and has really bad corrosion.

      I wonder if the new Ford aluminum pickups will look like this after a season in the salt?

      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...

      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?

      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...

      Glass fuel bowl with fuel pump
      by Towd56
      can you use the glass fuel bowl if you are using a fuel pump installed BEFORE the fuel bowl. Or do you install the pump after?...

      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...

      46 to 50 Cams
      by Terry, NJ
      So I'm a little out of my normal ( Mod A ) interests this time, but this came up for a friend and it's been troubling us since then. It goes like this, A friend has a Late forties truck (48, 49, maybe 47?) and he wanted the electric fuel pump removed and the old mechanical pump restored as it had been when new. Great! We put the pushrod into the guide bore and felt it clink against the cam. No doubt...
