As for your Belair, I can't speak for that but the neighbor where I used to live had an identical one in his 1952 Cadillac. They were made, I believe, by AC but I have also seen them with the Carter logo.


i can wait !!!!

The "factory type" was referring to the regular glass bowl filter that attaches to the inlet of the carburetor and the line from the pump connects to it. They were a common accessory that is still available but with a modern replaceable element rather than the washable ceramic element of the original. I have several new one at my Oregon shop if you can't find one more quickly.[/quo

Not in a hurray at all, do you have a picture of one i may have one< sounds like one i had for my 56 Belair

I only ever had an electric pump in one Packard and only because it came with it (a 1953 Clipper Deluxe) and it was easier to leave it in. Some pumps have adjustable pressure so shut off when not needed while others just keep pumping. Mine was the diaphragm type which will still pass fuel through from the mechanical pump even when shut off but other types need to run all the time or they'll block the flow.

Bottom line is I can see no reason to install an electric pump and they may just be patches to cover another problem that needs addressing first. If the mechanical pump is in good condition, its valves should minimize fuel running back to the tank when sitting for periods of time.

I would, however, use a filter at all times and prefer the factory type if for nothing other than appearance. The modern in-line filters look odd to me in an old car.


Hey Don thanks for the info, I am thinking I will give just the mechanical fuel pump a shot, crossing my fingers that the lobe on the cam is still good!!!!

But you mentioned that you would use the "factory type" i was under the impression that they didn't use one ??? ......do you have a picture of what one would look like???

Hey Chris, I had Arthur Gould rebuild the pump, it looks cherry and they said it passed the bench test just fine. That's a great question, and now I wonder if you/someone else has ever had any problems with the mechanical pump pulling through the electrical pump???

I just received my rebuilt fuel pump and it looks awesome. In talking to the rebuilder, he was telling me that I should use a electric pump and filter some where before the mechanical, I asked why the pump ????? He said it helps the fuel pump if the car has been sitting for awhile.......but wouldn't i run the risk of over pressirizing the needle seat running 2 pumps?????? And I'm not sure if you all run filters???? If so where??? I was thinking about putting a filter down where the rubber hose hooks to the pump and the supply line?????

Thanks Owen, I have safety wired a ton on jet engines, I'm going to have to look at that close to devise away to wire tie them. You mention the spacer on the pump to block, how thick should it be??? I just want to make that I do have a correct spacer.

Thanks Pat

Oh didn't know that!!! So I have done my fair share of safety wire where is each bolt wired too??? The inserts are still there but I didn't check the washers to see if they are fiber...... it did have a thick gasket, but it was brittle......do I need to reuse it????
