Mechanical Fuel Pump Question

I will be running an 89 5.0 in my 64 Falcon, carburetor instead of fuel injection. The fuel line will be a reproduction of the 5/16" line. What fuel pump are most of you running with a setup similar to this? I've looked at the ones from Carter as well as the reproduction ones with the filter canister. There are different configurations of the Carter.

Re: Mechanical Fuel Pump Question

Take your pick for where you want your filter, and if on the pump, verify it fits the chassis without hitting stuff. You are also probably aware the EFI engines usually do not have a pump drive eccentric on the cam, and you'll have to add one to drive the pump. Be sure to verify the right type (there are two) for your cam and timing gear set.

Yes, I have a one piece eccentric and a Cloyes timing chain set that is for a one piece.
