How to replace a fuel pump on a 1984 chevy camaro with a 5.0 carbed engine

The only trick to this is that there is a bolt in the front of the engine block just in front of where the pump goes which you can remove, then install a longer bolt to press against the pump actuator rod to keep it from falling out when you remove the pump. If you don't do this you will need to remove the rod, use some hard grease on it and try to get it to stay in place while you mount the new pump which can be a real PITA. Be sure to cean the old gasket from the mounting area and use sealer on the new gasket. Use "line wrenches" on both sides of fuel line fittings to keep from rounding them off and mop up any fuel you spill. On some cars fuel will pour from tank when you remove that fuel line, so it helps to have a short piece of hose with a stopper in one end (I use an old bolt) to plug the line while you work. DO NOT WORK WITH A/C TROUBLE LAMP AROUND FUEL AND FUMES. Use a flashlight and be careful.

Got a problem with pushing my push rod up so I can install new fuel pump on 1978 chevrolet half ton truck, to slippery. It is a Chevrolet Cheyenne 1000 which is not listed

You will see a bolt on the front of the block which is removed and replaced with a longer bolt to hold the fuel pump push rod in while installing the fuel pump. It will be a 3/8" threaded bolt

How to install a fuel pump into a 78 monte carlo

Remove the fuel lines and then the pump. You will see a bolt screwed flush into the block were the fuel pumps push rod is located. You will need to remove that bolt and get another one like it although an inch longer. That bolt will be used to hold the push rod in place when installing the new pump. After the installation is completed remove the extra long bolt and replace the original one back in

How do I replace fuel pump 1978 Chevrolet ck10, 350 V8

The fuel pump is on the lower front passenger side of the engine. Place a small container under the pump and remove the fuel lines. They ae on there with hose clamps. Then remove the 2 bolts on the upper part of the fuel pump housing (7/16, I believe) and the pump will slide out of the motor. You may find a rod sliding out behind it. Don't lose it. Clean the old gasket off the block with a scraper or razor blade.
The bolts should hold the new gasket on the back of the new fuel pump. Put the rod back in, if it fell out, and hold it in place with a bent screwdriver until you get the plunger arm of the fuel pump against it. Slowly bring the fuel pump back up into position, keeping pressure on the rod and start the bolts. Keep the pump tight at all times or it can slide off the rod and you'll have to start over. Once the pump is tightened up on the block, re-install the gas lines and clamp them.
Start the engine. You should only have to start it 2 or 3 times before it picks up fuel and keeps running. If not then you'll have to take it back off and re-position the pump on the plunger rod.
Before you re-assemble, make sure the plunger on the new fuel pump is the same length as the old one. GM used 2 different length plingers on the fuel pump and they can't be interchanged. Hope this helps.

Fuel pump push rod

I would use something like the fuel pump listed here, this is a good performance fuel pump that will be able to feed that 454 engine, it comes with a fuel pressure regulator and you can either use a fuel gauge to set the fuel pressure or install an in-line fuel gauge near the carburetor to easily check and monitor the fuel pressure, and set the fuel pressure regulator for 7psi of fuel pressure, and any more fuel pressure than that and the fuel could be pushed past the needle and seat inside the carburetor.

How to install a new fuel pump on a 1985 Chevy,305 V8,

Remove the plunger rod by removing the plate that is bolted to the block. Clean all parts if needed.

Apply some axle grease to the plunger rod and reinstall into the block, replace plate, then carefully install fuel pump, making sure the plunger is under the push rod.

Just did this same thing on my '66 283.

How to change fuel pump ?

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect fuel tank hose at the fuel pump, and plug the hose with a bolt or wooden dowel to keep any fuel from flowing out wires. Check the hose and if it is frayed or cracked, replace it with new fuel line hose.
  3. Disconnect the outlet line to the carburetor. Use a wrench on the fuel pump fitting and another on the line nut.
  4. Remove the two attaching bolts and remove the old fuel pump. Clean off any old gasket material from the mounting surface of the engine.
  1. Apply a coat of gasket sealer on both sides of the new gasket. Put the attaching bolts through the new pump and slip the gasket over the bolts.
  2. Install the new pump on the engine. Make sure that the rocker arm in the pump is against the eccentric inside the engine, or that the push rod is correctly installed in both the engine and the fuel pump. If the push rod slides out, you can pack it with some heavy grease to hold it in place while you install the pump.
  3. Attach the fuel outlet line that runs to the carburetor. If it's difficult to connect, remove the other end of the line from the carburetor. Connect the line to the fuel pump, and then reattach the other end to the carburetor. Use a wrench to hold the fuel pump fitting and tighten the line nut with another wrench.
  4. Attach the fuel inlet hose from the gas tank, and the vapor return hose (if the vehicle is equipped with one). Tighten all clamps.
  5. Reconnect the battery ground cable, start the vehicle and check for leaks.
Hope that works

Fuel pump

If it is from the older GM casting there is a bolt hole that is in line with the rod. You can put a longer bolt in that hole and it will hold the rod. If it’s not there, push the rod into place. Bring the fuel pump down from the top and catch the rod with the pump lever.
