You're yelling again... :(

I was trying to get his attention. He seems like all young fellows these days, open the box and throw away the instructions. When mixing and matching, you have to follow the manufacturer(s) instructions to the letter.

!!!mechanical fuel pumps suck!!!
The main problem I would like to move to mechanical is that my current Carter electric pump on the Cobra is noisy as hell. I know when the engine gets going you can't hear it but when you turn the ignition on or at tick over, is sound like I have a sewing machine on drugs in the back!!!

Just a personal thing really.

It is your call, but most likely the pump can be mounted in a fashion that will lessen vibration and not transfer noise.

What mech pump are you going with? CARTER HI-FLOW?

Yeah, even dangling my Bosch pump from a string it's pretty loud, though with a carb you don't need near the pressure out of it, which can quiet it down considerably.

There's nothing wrong with a mechanical pump, they're no more 'old tech' than the carburetor you're running or the entire concept of the piston engine itself, and just fine for their designed usage.

Probably a Holley or maybe a Carter, but not made the decision yet. What sort of pressure\GPH do I need to be looking at?

6-8 psi will be plenty for most applications. edelbrock has there performer rpm pump that might fit your needs. it has a 110 gph and will not need a regulator.

Hello all,

Informative thread, thanks. I'm trying to find a fuel pump eccentric.. builder has a billet timing set that will only accept the 1 piece eccentric, apparently. The main Ford P/N 302-6287-B is sold out everywhere for at least a month.

The local ford dealership said their reno distributor has the attached one in stock, which appears to be a 1 piece, near as I can tell. Can anyone confirm it'll work?

FYI the build is a roller 408 based off a late model 351w. Compcams 282XE. Not sure if the fuel pump shaft is steel or iron, i was told they wanted to use steel...
