    Default ford 302 mechanical fuel pump replacing

    Ok i would like to change this item as preventive maintenance as its the original and i believe the motor is around 1989.

    so have any of you changed one, theres 2 bolts holding it, but i concern about the arm the rides on the concentric shaft, i'm i going to have problems ?

    a step by step from a pro would be helpful...

    It is the same as a car except it has an over flow which goes back to the carb. I would not change it but keep a spare on hand, the old saying if it ain't broke don't fix it. When you put it in you might find it hard to push in, you are pressing it against the cam with the spring loaded arm. You could also go to an electric model it is up to you.

    I have taken mine off and on (on a 302). It was really quite easy. The spring was not really a problem. But you definately want one with the tube to the carb.

    Might want to try Tim @ Engines1 - probably best to give him a call rather than thru the website:

    If you need some other engine stuff, might want to bundle it with this purchase...

    I had to put a new fuel pump on my boat it was quite easy. The arm was hard going in so I pull my coil wire off the dist. cap and tap the starter just enought to make the cam turn about a inch are two. Arm went in easy after that. It took me about a half hour to do the job.
