    Mid '50s G.M. medium duty trucks used both Olds and Buick V8s, and often had fuel pumps without the vacuum pump.

    the mid 50's gmc pump is not a replacement fuel pump though, im looking of a new fuel pump and none of the local parts dealers can get one. anyone know of where i could get the whole pump
     
  6. Take a look at other pumps made for GM cars.

    You may be able to do a mix and match with a common Chevy pump diaphragm onto your Olds pump body.

    Seems like that was a common trick in years past, graft a Chevy mechanical high performance pump onto other pumps.
    In that case, I believe both pumps were made by Carter and it was a simple bolt-together deal.
