How to change 1984 chrysler new yorker 2.6l from an electric fuel pump to a mechanical fuel pump.

Replace the mechanical pump with a new unit and that will remove any reason of broken/failure from the equation. Remove the electric pump altogether and leave 1 filter in the line before the mechanical pump. Mechanical pumps are not in favour with some people who have no idea that they can be adjusted to give more pressure and greater volume for the bigger capacity engines. Some mechanical pumps are more expensive to repair / replace but if you price an electric pump to supply the volume that a properly adjusted or a larger capacity mechanical pump then the cost saving is minimal. Unless you get a fuel filter that is rated with a smaller micron rating than the standard filter any number of filters will not work as the smallest particle will get through the lot

1984 Nissan Sentra? I believe this fuel pump is mounted on the engine, thats a mechanical fuel pump, you sure its not a 1994? If its a 94, you can change the o-ring yourself if you're up for it. On 94's the pump is mounted under the back seat through an access panel via 4 phillips screws.

I have a 1986 chevy K10 350 carberated that has a fuel line problem from the mechanical fuel pump up to the carb. its not pumping any fuel up to it, i've replaced the mechanical fuel pump and the

By automatic I'm assuming you mean electric. Are the hoses still plumbed into this pump and then to the mechanical pump? If so, disconnect from the electric pump and plumb together with a barbed fitting. It's a possibility that the electric pump is locked up and the mechanical pump can't pull fuel through it. Also, is the mechanical pump actuator rod in place behind the pump? This rides on the cam to actuate the pump.

What is the benifit of having an electrical fuel pump compare to a machanical pump, because I am ready to replace mine to a mechanical on my 1965 mustang

with an electric fuel pump you don't have to prime the system before start up, and you can control fuel pressure, if your car is stock the mechanical pump will do fine

OEM fuel pump was mechanical, driven by the cam and is bolted to the block

The engine turns but the car won,t start.

You will need to check for fuel pressure or dirty filter. If you do not have fuel pressure; be sure to check fuses or any relay pertaining to fuel pump (if electric). If fuses and relays are good check or replace fuel filter. If the fuel pump is mechanical disregard fuses & relays and check or replace fuel filter. If this does not resolve the problem then the problem could be the fuel pump if mechanical, If its an electric fuel pump it could be a fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump, crimped fuel line or other wiring issue.

These are the most common things I run across, oh, a crimped fuel line can cause the problem in either case electric or mechanical. Hope this helps in some way, been awhile sense I worked with an older car.
