Electric Fuel Pump
Posted by: 19sixty5 ()

My 66 Monza 140 has this fuel pump mounted close to the tank. Does anyone know anything about it? There is a stock pump still mounted, but it appears the inlet/outlet ports have been plugged. I'm still sorting things out with the car, but wonder if this pump is worth keeping or replace it with something else.

Is it still working? Then it's worth keeping.

Sounds like somebody wanted to have the advantages of a electric pump, and the look of a stock pump.

Great, another cool idea I want to copy.

Clark's sells a bypass plate already made up that goes into a stock pump replacing the stock pump parts in the middle. Looks stock and retains stock fuel lines in the engine bay.

How does one remove the plug to re-insert the pump?

It uses the factory retaining bolt.

Playerpage, I have no issue leaving the old pump in place for a stock appearance. When I installed a Holley Sniper on my 70 El Camino SS396, I gutted the stock pump, reinstalled it with a block off plate, and kept the original lines intact from the old fuel tank all the way up to the Sniper. Now I need wire it correctly, it was installed "hot" without even a fuse. I plan to wire it with a relay, oil pressure switch, inertia switch and relay to make it safe.
