I've got a 1995 351W block, was a carbureted marine engine and had a fuel pump eccentric on it. Doing a complete rebuild new cam, dist., crank, etc.
Ready to order a timing chain set, I see an option for either having a one piece fuel pump eccentric or a two piece.
I do have the old part, boxed up with all the other old stuff, but wanted to ask what the difference is, is it obvious by looking at it?
thanks

There are two types of fuel pump eccentrics for small block Fords, a one piece and a two piece. The one piece centers on the camshaft dowel pin while the two piece has a tab which centers in the dowel hole of the timing chain cam gear. Most new cams come with a short and a long dowel in the box so you can select the appropriate one for your eccentric. However, you only need to worry about eccentrics if you plan to use a mechanical pump. Otherwise you can leave it out.
