  1. 3 different fuel pumps were used during these years, a AC 9630 for 6 cyl engine, a AC 9640 for 8 cyl engine, and a AC 539, 9630 & 9640 used a glass bowl, 539 used a metal bowl, 9630 - 53-54 6 cyl. 9640 - 51-54 8 cyl. except 54 with factory air conditioning. 539 - 41-51 8 cyl. and 54 with factory air conditioning. note, pontiac informed dealerships when replacing a 9640, if a 9640 isn't available to use the better 539 pump. the 539 pump will have a larger fuel diaphram and pump body.
