Hello,

Both of my fuel pumps failed at the end of the season last year. There has been a lot of discussion on here regarding these discontinued pumps and I don't care to rebuild them because they do not have the additional fitting for an extra return line to the carb to meet safety requirements. I am not really looking to go to electric pumps either.

Does anyone have new spares that you no longer need and would like to sell?

I did find Holley makes something very similar but I don't know if it is exact.  I have steel fuel lines so not much flexibility.

Thanks.

UPDATE 6/3/19. Pumps installed.  From Summit Racing, marine fuel pump M61073, Carter $46.00 each, allows you to clock one of the fuel fittings (upper to carb) into the exact position the original was located.  I had to bend a new supply side fuel line to align with the other fitting.  I will also be adding a new line from the flame arrestor to the port on the fuel pump which sprays out fuel upon pump failure.

Photos attached, I hope.  Thanks for the input.

Captain  Steve  ........   Your  pumps  for your 327 F engines are still available either new or can be re-built with a repair kit  . You can add the overflow vent assembly yourself  like many of us have done  .  You add a small brass hose barb to the vent hole and connect the vent hose to flame arrestor .  You are getting incorrect info about  the pumps being discontinued .  The pump id  / model # is stamped on the side of the mounting flange .

Consider the following sites that  will help you for a new pump or a re-build  service  . All pumps or  rebuild kits made today are compatible for today`s modern fuel  which your original pumps were not  .  You will not look back on that agenda with either choice you make .

Call Marine Parts Source, marinepartssource.com they will have what you need, you likely can have it by the weekend.

Those look like they would be rebuildable. Do they not sell the kits for these. I recall replacing the diaphragms etc on the auto pumps, when rebuilding was a thing. If you give up on these, I would love to have the cores. 

I will not be at the boat until the end of the month.  I will let you know what happens.  Thanks for the info.

Captain  Steve  ......... from the  photo of your fuel pump that appears to be a Carter fuel pump .  Those mechanical  pumps are still made new from  www.carterfuelsystems.com  . They are all re-buildable  as mentioned earlier .   If you decide to switch to the electric pump  be aware of the additional wiring  for the oil pressure switch  / plumbing  and the original anti-siphon valve in your fuel tanks that must be modified  . If that is not addressed the engines will not have correct performance  for   psi and fuel flow  .

And here is the solution to your metal fuel line which will work once you find tgat thoght Carter does still make your exact pump brand new (and inexpensive at twice the price), they will be clocked wrong.

Captains ................  the Carter  mechanical  pumps are  clockable  for correct  fuel fitting alignment  .

Agree on still clockable, however what you will now find is that clockable to 180 degrees are no longer made. Now they will always have a few degrees offset no matter what, thus the simple solution of clocking to the rigid inlet tube, then using the Sierra Coast Guard approved rubber hose to go to the carb.

I just did both pumps about two years ago. For this price, a no brainier on going with new pumps rather than rebuilding. Besides, the pins are tough to get out without a press.

Good opportunity to learn how to make your own lines. It’s not hard. 

Awesome. Thank you for sharing this info. I can't wait to get the boat back in for the season.
