External Fuel Pump Question/Thoughts ?

Any thoughts on an reliable External Fuel Pump for Ashley's 304 ?

I/she really doesn't want to go w/electric, but if I can't find a Fuel Pump Eccentric she might have to.

Just don't want to buy junk or spend 200 bucks for one either.

Here is her Essentric (pics below).

The PO must have not had the old fuel pump tight when we replaced it.

I really don't see why it can't be used (ya, I know) when the fuel pumps arm rides on top if the Essentric ?

We can always install it to get the Cam gear on if we can't find one.

The machine shop said he has never seen one like this and went on to say the metal might have been defective from the factory-tempered

Thanks,
Jim

Hey Jim just posted in your other thread on this, but that pic looks exactly like mine did. I had a time with it because NOBODY around here had ever seen one like that either. I bought a new one and I don't think I gave anywhere near $200. I want to say $60 or so. I put it on and put a brand new airtex fuel pump and I had it on right. It ate the brand new eccentric up in 6 months while cranking the motor in a parts Jeep before I could even get it in my real Jeep. I had to by another new eccentric and bought a Carter pump the second time. It seems to be good so far. I am thinking something was wrong with the brand new airtex pump and that's what ate up my eccentric. I feel for you bud, because I have been exactly where you are! I just didn't have this forum or anybody that could help me. It was an ordeal for sure!

Just as a thought and something i have done before on a dodge truck i had that kept eating the fuel pump eccentric was have a welder hard face the part then turn it down on a lathe. Just a thought.

This is the email I just received from American Parts Depot.

Jim,
I have them in stock. It is part of a kit. I cannot supply the eccentric by itself. Here is the listing from our online catalog:
Note that our listing above shows through 1979 since we sell parts for AMC passenger cars and 79 is the last year that AMC offered V8's in their cars. It does fit all AMC 304's. $89.00
Thanks,
Doug

I thought of that but wouldn't that take the temper out of the metal ?

Glad you found one. and just fyi when you hard face one it will not effect the temper of the material enough to be a concern unless the welder does a poor job. The material added being harder than the eccentric will carry the load and once lathed smooth and polished will last for many years of service.

Glad you found one. You lucky rascal. I had already did some looking and found where I got my second one at Galvin's amc rambler parts. I was able to get it without having to buy the whole shabang. It was cheaper that way. Good luck, maybe that problem is solved, but I would watch that fuel pump. I really believe that's what ate mine.

Thanks all.

Ya I will look at her F-Pumps arm before install. We are using the $24.00 NAPA F-Pump.

I'll look at it.

Thanks for the heads up.

Jim

I bet you will be fine with a NAPA pump. They have good parts. My grandfather believed in NAPA, wouldn't hardly go anywhere else! I shoulda took the advice I learned from him. Yeah, best I can remember that guy at Galvin's was a nice guy. Doug at APD was a good guy too, but he chewed on me a little bit for putting an aftermarket cam in there. He said I took the best cam out. He was a true blue through and through AMC guy best I can remember.

P.S. Maybe a mod can add to the topic - AMC Fuel eccentric.
