mechanical fuel pumps work fine. Unless the lobe or tab that actuates the pump is damaged there is no reason to go to an electric pump. Actually there are probably more reasons not to.


At my work we had 4 trucks with 429/460 that had 4 barrel carb. No matter how you try it keep gas stay in carb. Amount of fuel in bowl would evaporate within a week.

How much it cost you to replace starter every year because you keep CRANK CRANK for manual fuel pump to prime gas.

These sudden start issue 4 years ago and it wasn't manual fuel pump issue. It gas that is evaporate faster.
