I went rogue and picked up a cartar rotary pump from Napa for about 4 dollars less than DIP.....mostly because they didnt have one in stock....Hopefully I will get it in an installed tomorrow....

Good news though...Today I managed to get the external filter mounted up...hopefully I can get the car started tomorrow!

Thanks again Kev for the mount -- I had to flip 'er around though to make it work today.

Cool, glad it worked!  Did you have to reverse it because of the bumper bolts?  Nice wire job.

Supporting the oil lines so they don't hang down to far and catch on stuff.

I decided I didnt need the frustration of the bolts right now so I just flipped it, rebent it, drilled two holes and used a couple of my spare bolts.  Worked Like a charm.

Btw....no wetsanding for me tomorrow --Im all about getting the fuel pump in and getting this sucker started.

Got the Fuel pump installed and I hot wired it temporarily to work.  Does anyone have experience with this relay wiring.  I have a diagram and get how to wire it into the fuel pump and generator I am just wondering which Fuse I should attach it to.  Anyone have any experience they care to share?

I just have mine wired to my ignition. No relay needed.  When the car is on. It's running. I put mine under the tank on the pan. They like to push the fuel more than pull it I was told.

Make sure you keep a good eye on the bolts that attach the manifolds to the heads if you are going to run the Kadrons on the single port manifolds.

If you have a dual port engine, disregard.  I ran mine and never tightened them back down, no issues.

Not to long ago I sold a set of the single port manifolds for a single port for a sum of $75....
The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

Check the output pressure of this pump. Most of the carbs used on aircooled engines can't handle a lot of pressure. The output of generic pumps is often too high and overwhelms the float valves and flood the carb. A lot of generic pumps are made for 'murican cars and put out 7+ psi. Might be a bit too much.
