Wow. That looks too good and complete to be parting out. I hope someone is able to step up to the pump on that one.

I have a 1940 180, and I installed an electric fuel pump.

First, HH56 is correct. The E8011 is the one you want, and can be used without a regulator. That's what I have on my car.

Second, no need in installing it near the rear of the car, unless that's a better place to hide it. I installed mine up near the front, and has worked perfectly for 10 years or so up there.

Definitely install with a switch. I only use mine for priming, and for when it starts to cough while in traffic, or trying to start after a long freeway run when the car is hot (gas stops).

Here's the AC G10, which is obviously not the two-piece take-apart plug that the Champion C4 is (and which can be seen plainly in the factory photo.

Yes. Chassis could be painted something other than black for extra cost.

It's the same across the board, 180-110 are mounted all the same. Clipper excluded.

Fantastic find on that historical photo, Howard. It is interesting to note, however, that it contains a completely different bracket than the one I have, PLUS, the compressor itself is different, as the bolts to mount it go into the side, rather than the bottom.

This is a 1942 Clipper 120. The compressor bracket I posted earlier is from this exact car. It is a legitimate factory-ordered air-conditioned Clipper, possibly the only one left known to exist that was originally fitted. We sold the car in the mid-1980s to a fellow in Ohio. The car had about 40,000 miles on it at the time. Apparently, it sat outdoors for the next 30 years. A true shame.

After seeing this engine compartment shot again, I'm going to take a WAG and say that the illustration posted further back is not correct in the way the 1942 compressor was attached. I'm guessing that the compressor may have been mounted to the side of the engine (sideways), or possibly to the chassis.
