Re: Electric fuel pump vs original mechanical fuel pump

My 1953 Clipper Deluxe when I bought it had an electric diaphragm pump mounted on the frame near the tank but once I rebuilt the car's own mechanical pump, the electric pump was never needed again. It always started right up and was very dependable.

That said, many of the diaphragm type pumps have an auto-start feature so do not need a switch. They will run only when needed. I have several of them in both 6v and 12v but likely they need new diaphragms which I am not sure are still available.
