Another Fuel Pump Question...
« Reply #15 on: July 11, 2011, 10:01:38 AM »

Thanks... I will look at those, then. I may just order a new set from Inline Tube, and see about replacing them when I do the rear portion of the fuel line.
 
Some of this stuff I'm going to replace just because... The other wagon that I had, my folks owned from new, so I knew everything about it, good and bad.... It had about the same number of miles back then, as this one has now, but it was in much better condition... mostly because it was 25 years ago, I presume.
 
I just want to be confident about as much of this car as I can, before I go driving it around. Someday, I'd like to drive it to Carlysle, which is where the guy I got it from first bought the car. I'd also like to do a Route 66 trip someday... Neither of which will happen before I have confidence that it will hold up.... could be awhile :-)

Also, you'll be changing the front hoses when you do the conversion, but everyone over looks the rear hose.  Hint Hint.  LOL  Looks can be deceiving

[/QUOTE]
Do you have a small block or big block in your car?
The procedure for both is quite similar.
Disconnect the fuel filter , hoses,and line going to the carburetor.
With a line wrench dissconnect the main fuel line from the pump.
With a 9/16 swivel socket and short extension remove the two bolts holding the pump in.
Clean the mating surface to prevent any oil leaks.
I usually dab some silicone on the pump itself and put the gasket and bolts through the pump first.
 
The exception of  the big block is the fuel pump push rod you have to make sure you push it back up in the block when inserting the fuel pump arm into the block.
Small block make sure  the fuel pump arm goes under the camshaft eccentric--or depending where it is located at the time.
Get both bolts started into the block and gradually tighten them up so much at a time each.
Reconnect your lines and have a fire extinguiser handy prior to start up,LOL!
I also prime the carb if any fuel drained back out of  the float bowl.
ALWAYS CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER WITH A NEW PUMP.
Hope this helps
