Why an Internal Pump? They are hidden and highly dependable and these are the pumps specified for the 1971 – 1977 Chevy Vega. External pumps can be noisy and can usually be overheard at idle and emulate a mechanical pump “The Clunk-Clunk noise”.  The internal pump uses a Gerotor pump and does not create the large pulses of fuel as solenoid-type pumps but may produce a light “whine” that some may find noisy.   Mechanical fuel pumps that don’t leak or fail are becoming hard to find and we think this is a good, long-term solution.

You should check the gauge calibration and operation of the sending unit against your gauge before installation.  We test every sending unit for the proper Ohms before modification.  MOST GAUGE FAILURES are ground-related.. so check your ground while testing and installing.  You must specify early or late as they have different gauge Ohms.

This pump assembly will work on any Carburated Corvair from 2-7 psi (GM Old School).  We recommend using the Revolution Fuel Pump Safety Switch https://www.revolutionelectronics.com/Products/Fuel Pump.html  This will ensure that your fuel pump stops pumping in case of a wreck or engine stall.    You may also add a pressure regulator according to your needs..most Carbs do not.

We test-run each pump before it leaves our shop as part of the quality control process.  DO NOT RUN THE PUMP DRY FOR MORE THAN 5 SECONDS.  The rubber hose between the unit and pump is a special submersible hose that is not as flexible as most and will break the plastic end of the pump if over-flexed and is not covered under warranty.
