As mentioned, some folks have these either in place of or in addition to the mechanical fuel pump. One common usage is to have the electric fuel pump in-line with the mechanical fuel pump, operated by a switch somewhere on or under the dashboard, turn it on for a few seconds before starting up, but leave it off in normal operation. This keeps one from having to run the starter a while to get fuel up into the carburetor after a long time sitting as is a common use-case with vintage cars. Some folks don't have this problem, seems to have a lot to do with the fuel available in the area (esp. as regards the quantity of ethanol) and the conditions in which the car "lives", e.g. temperature-controlled garage or not. Folks in hot climates also use it to prevent vapor lock, especially at hot startup, using a similar strategy. Basic point - it's not verboten to have one on your Cavalier, many do for legitimate reasons - vintage cars are not operated as frequently as "daily drivers", and because of the different characteristics of modern fuel, vapor lock can be more of a problem than when the car was built, as was detailed in a series of recent articles in the Packard Cormorant club magazine. There is a heat shield that is provided between the mechanical fuel pump and the engine, which has sometimes been removed sometime in the past by a mechanic who was too bothered to put it back on (these are available from various Packard vendors as I understand it), and there are insulated fasteners used to mount the fuel pump to the engine, both of which are there to help prevent vapor-lock. There are threads in this forum on how to properly select and install an electric fuel pump without having to remove the mechanical fuel pump.

Thanks for the info Jerome solberg,
I will definitely be looking into that as I've said before this car hasn't been running 40 years so I want to make sure I get you know all the fuel lines tank carburetor all that stuff everything taken care of before we even try to start it it does turn over so that's a plus but thank you I will definitely look into that.

Put in the stock pump as the one you showed has nothing whatsoever to do with Packard even if it did come out of it.

Apparently, those are quite desirable and can fetch several hundred for cores to close to a grand rebuilt in excellent condition.
So don't throw it out, if not using/not working. Should be 12VDC.
The specs push too much fuel for a "P" motor w/ carb. It'd have to be intermittent or set up with a pressure & flow regulator.
The fittings are not correct for an inverted flare line.

These are the photos of the car.

So I guess the plan is to get it running moving and potentially a sticker on it so he can be driven you know the lights also and then sell it I'm pretty sure somebody will definitely buy that or want it for a restoration project.
