Looking for the 90 degree fuel pump adapter for my 1940 Pontiac Torpedo Model 2927C
Anyone have photos of where you put the electric aux fuel pump? I'm thinking back by the tank on the frame somewhere, but I can just picture getting through this, letting the car off the jack stands, and crunch - the suspension wipes the pump right off. This is for the '51, but any photos will help. (Even if they're the "don't put it here - crunch" variety.)
So I've had my '89 since April and I've had no trouble with it until two weeks ago when I'm driving through town and the red brake warning light comes on. The brakes work fine for three more lights, but when I get to the next one the pedal is reallhard to push down. I used two feet and the car will still stop just fine. Sounds like "no boost." When I get back to campus I get on here and research. I do the brake test and the first step is check the voltage to the pump. I pop the hood and the pump is vibrating and sounds like it's running at 10% power. I check the voltage and it's got 11.90V. So I go back inside and start looking for a pump motor. They are $600+. So my question is: a) Where do you get your pump motors from at any price substantially less than a re-manufactured unit? What other years/models have the same motor for a possible junkyard unit. (I know the salvage yard unit will not last as long but it's what I can afford.) Looking at other threads Jim Finn may have one but his email seems to change a lot. Any help would be appreciated ya'll. Thanks for your time.
