Came into the office today and smelled gasoline... So I went out to the attached shop and found a puddle of gas under the Bronco's fuel pump.

The Bronco just has a factory style Carter pump, and I would like a different style as this pump points the lines directly into the frame rails, I have less than an 1-1/2" to sneak the hoses onto the barbs, and would like to change the routing either towards the back or perhaps split with the in from the rear of the engine and tho the carb to the front.

I'm only feeding a Eldelbrock 600 so I don't need RobbMc's super awesome fuel pump, (although it would fix my inlet and out problems)

Ideas? what would you choose Summit seems to have a bunch of options, I just know I don't want a POS.

...muscle car pump. I'd get the one with pipe fittings, then use either a 90° fitting, a 90° AN adapter, etc.

on Carter. Don't forget to closely check your oil for gas contamination as a busted diaphragm can pump gas directly in through the fuel pump cavity.

i was looking at some 6 valve pumps on one of the 'big box' sites, do ya think it's possible to build a Cleveland 6 valve using the lower 1/2 from BBC pump... just remove the bottom of the Cleveland pump and swap on the lower section from the 6 valve?

then sell off the remains as a std BBC pump

there'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road... and the white man dancing

because of the smaller float bowl which must admit fuel longer at a time , and makes it more frothy while doing so

Last thing anybody heard, was when I started screamin'....Catch me if you can

You realize that is a pro comp part? I figured after all the smashing of their cylinder heads I should point it out that its just another cheap chinese knock off.

i didn't catch that that was a pro-crap, but I appreciate Tin, taking the time to find and post it for me.

I got a Carter one ordered locally.
