Does anyone know if a kit is available to rebuild this pump. Thanks Ron
I got a kit for my Studebaker fuel pump and enjoyed fixing it myself but for a Chevy I'd just go to a local store and pick one up. Any savings will get eaten up in shipping charges. Get a local one and be on the road this afternoon. JMO
Thanks tommy! I'm building an old school 327 with tunnel ram and trying to use older performance parts. By the size of the in and out ports this pump must push some good GPM. Can anybody help with a rebuild kit? Thanks Ron
CARPOKE...GEEZ! are NEW fuel pump's realy that expensive?...POP.
any numbers on this LARGE PORT fuel pump? Check in Hemmings under mixed-make and Chevrolet parts = also 'services offered' If you can identify the pump, it's likely there will be a kit out there - possibly NOS.
The diaphragm in a NOS kit won't live long with modern fuels with alcohol in them. The 3 inlet/outlet valves do indicate a high capacity pump.
Not sure of the rebuild kit. But here is a part number for a napa brand fuel pump, for a 1960 fuel injected corvette high horse power engine. about 60.00 without exchange. Part #M3972 and just like your pump it can be clocked for your install.
That looks like an old carter high volume race pump. kits are difinitely out there and it beats the crap out of sealed pumps. Try Antique Auto cellar(celler?) or check an Edlebrock distributor. I think they took this from carter several years ago. These are what used to be required in Nascar because they do not allow ANY non-engine driven pumps.
