And "replace it" is obvious. The engine in question is a 322 nailhead, which is sitting in a 56 Special. I discovered yesterday that the fuel pump does not pump fuel. Which kind of makes it not a fuel pump after all... As everyone knows, fuel pumps for these engines are kinda pricey, about $135 or so. Haven't found any rebuild kits for the fuel pumps that have the vacuum attachment. But, I do know that some Chevy trucks in the 50's came with these 322's, and I have found a fuel pump for that reasonably priced. The only thing is, it doesn't have the vacuum pump on the bottom. I don't think I need the vacuum pump, as most of the original vacuum stuff isn't hooked up anymore anyway. I just want to verify with the HAMB experts that the fuel pump from the 322 in the Chevy truck will function on my 322 in the Special. It may seem obvious, but the wacky 50's engineering on this car surprises me again and again, so I apologize if this is a stupid question. Or would it make more sense to go with an electric pump if I can find one that won't drown the carb? Also, a big thank you to all the HAMBers that helped me with my starter posts and what not. I got the engine started yesterday, and it runs great until it burns off all the gas in the carb.
