I have not replaced or rebuilt the fuel pump on our 1957 300C for many years. So far no leaks.
When we purchased our 1970 300 Convertible in California in 1986, my cousin had it towed to his home and was unable to get it to run. After about five months I traveled to California to determined what was wrong with the car. My cousin had a new battery in it etc. Since it would not run, our son said do you mind if I check the oil. I was surprised to find that there was fluid all the way up the dip stick. I got a new fuel pump and had to change the oil and filter twice before I could get the oil light to turn off and cleaned the spark plugs twice before it would run smoothly. Also had to replace the carburetor needle valve since the carb was flooding.
The original owner which I never met, told my cousin that the car no longer would run. The car was at my cousins home for about six months and the gas would have slowly drained into the crank case through a ruptured fuel pump diaphragm as well at the owner’s residence. Lucky for me here was no engine damage as a result of the gas in the oil. We were able to drive it to Portland Oregon with no problems except for a broken belts in one of the tires.
I have a leaking fuel pump on my 62’ 300 w/413 engine. I see kits to rebuilt them and am asking if that is a good way to go or simply replace the fuel pump all together.
Over the years I have been able to come into contact with several Carter fuel pumps. On my “H” it says model “ 1055”. I have several others that have a different model no:, but appear to be identical.
Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
Would one from Jegs' or Summit be okay?
