good condition. I just upgraded. Will need a gasket. $15 shipped.
Is this still available? How is the mounting surface flatness? My current one causes an oil leak.
It was working great when I pulled it. If you were to have any immediate issues with it, I would refund your money.
Were you using the rigid steel line to the carb? PM me your PayPal? Can you post a picture of the mounting surface?
Still has some gasket on it.
Yes, at the time it was rigid steel line
Payment sent via PayPal. Thanks Matt.
Matt, How did you get around this?
Hi, I would post this in the help section as when I removed the pump I replaced it with a stage 1 pump and I also replaced the solid line with a flexible line. It originally had the solid line on it and i don’t recall how it was hooked up.
Does that solid line need to be turned more so it’s out of the way?
It looks to me like you might have had a Stage 1 metal line on it.
The bowl is deeper and so is the steel line. Stage 1 steel line would clear that no problem. In my opinion...
It’s possible but my engine is just a normal 455 and had the regular fuel pump on it. The steel line was old and had surface rust on it. I’m not sure someone would have put a stage 1 steel line on a plain old 455 with a regular fuel pump.
Or are you talking about Mikes picture above?
I think Phillips talking about mine. Could be a Stage 1 line but the carb connection is perfect. This brings back memories to last time I installed the fuel pump. The red pump has the straight inlet which lines up much better. Cheers, Mike
Ugh. I hope it works out ok.
Turns out if you need a straight barb you need one for a Wildcat. I quess I have the wrong rigid fuel line.
Ah, Buicks. Nothing is easy.
Returned the red pump for a warranty replacement and got a $10.77 refund. Whoop Whoop. It does look like I have a Stage 1 fuel line. Is the regular 455 one different?
Yes the line is different. Between a standard 455 and a Stage 1 carb to pump line.
Thanks Tony. That looks like my issue
