SHould I put a Electric Fuel pump on my 1966 Lincoln Continental?
something is wrong with my fuel pump pushrod in the camshaft. I took out the fuel line to the carb and no fuel was coming in. This was the case with the new and old fuel pump. The lobe was not moving when I tried to start it so I assume and also had a mechanic tell me its the fuel pump pushrod. Im assuming, its a heavy job. Most people are telling me to throw a electric fuel pump with a fuel line running straight to the carb. When I drop some fuel in the carb, it starts right up. If I don't put a electric fuel pump on there, is fixing the above problem a heavy job? And if I want to fix it, who has the parts?

i don't know what engine you have. all the pumps I have installed were very easy to change. go to the library and pull a manual ( chiltons, motor, or haynes) for that car and engine. It will walk you through the job.

It would be easier to put an electric pump on the car. Put it back by the fuel tank. Just be sure that the new pump can handle the alcohol in the unleaded fuel. Some of the old diaphragms would not last that long and tear up.

PUT A ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP WITH A REGULATOR (ABOUT 15 PSI )ON IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO REPLACE THE CAM IN THE ENGINE IF THE PUSH ROD FOR THE FUEL PUMP IS NOT MOVING UP AND DOWN THAT MEANS THE LOBE ON THE CAM IS WORE OUT AND IT IS A HEAVY AND TIMELY COSTLY JOB TO REPLACE THE CAM UNLESS THE CAR IS WORTH IT IF YOU GO...
