Carter Dual Action Fuel Pump Rebuild
Part 3 -
September 25, 2010
I started putting the pump together tonight. Before I get into the actual
reassembly, I want to show you just how damaged the fuel bowl was. The one
on the left is what was on the car when I got it. As you can see, the end of
it was crushed flat. This is caused by trying to fix a leaking gasket by
cranking down on the retaining screw. I don't think the gasket is available
separately but a replacement filter with a new gasket is readily available.
The filter I used is a Wix #33038. The replacement fuel bowl came from
Kennedy American. One thing to
note is that the replacement fuel bowl has the wrong finish on it (gold cad
instead of zinc). I solved that by media blasting the outside of the
replacement and painting it.
Here are the parts that make up the replacement check valves in the
pulsator section of the pump.
You'll need to drive the rivet through the pulsator section until the end
just sticks out from the other side. Once you do this, you'll need to peen
the end of the rivet so it doesn't slip out.
Up Next: Assembly continued.
