Easier Way To Install A Fuel Pump On V-8 Engine
Elmer Pinkerton, Elmwood, Neb.: "In a recent issue Art Gomez of Scott City, Kansas, found a way to install a fuel pump on his V-8 engine. I've been a mechanic all my life and have come up with an easier way.
"Many V-8 engines have a fuel pump that doesn't reach the camshaft so there's a short shaft between. It often is slanted and will fall out, making assembly difficult. There's usually a bolt in the front face of the engine that lines up with the shaft at a 90 degree angle. I remove that bolt and insert a longer, all-thread bolt that's long enough to hold the shaft in place and keep it from falling out. Don't forget to remove the long bolt and re-install the original bolt."
