Which Fuel Pump Kit Do You Need?

Choosing The Right Pump!

While pumps were being made there were often small changes which change the repair parts needed. To send the right kit we need to know which one you are working on! Take a Chevrolet 6 for example: from 1937 to 1954 “the same pump fits” – but in that time 14 pumps were issued originally requiring 6 different kits, even though most of the pumps look the same!

Luckily most pumps have a number stamped into the edge of the mounting flange as indicated. AC pumps may have 3,4,6, or 7 digits stamped in. AC-style pumps have 3 or 4. Carter pumps say “CAR-bure-TER” on the side of the main body (or have a spot where a re-builder ground this off) and a cast-in body part number. The pump number is still on the flange, starting with “M” then 3,4 or 5 digits.

No numbers? Call us with pump in hand after disassembling and marking the cover locations so you can put it back together. You can find casting numbers inside and we can ask questions and most likely figure it out! Worst case- send the pump in!

AC “UNITAC” OR CARTER CRIMPED COVER PUMPS: At present the only solution for these is to find a new pump. Save the original though- it’ll be an expensive nightmare trying, but someday we may come up with a repair sevice!

PLEASE NOTE: Pre-Korean War fuel lines were made of a flexible brass tubing covered with rubber to prevent kinking. No rubber touched the fuel. Mid-50’s fuel lines – especially those nice-looking flea market ones with the metal braid outside- are made of the old synthetic rubber which is apt to fail in today’s gas. Careful!
