I had no luck with the c&s pump i have better luck with the eldebrock and pro-cam pumps if you buy them from someplace other the KPR.

We use the CV Products billet fuel pump on any engine that does not have a belt driven pump. Personally I think it is the best one on the market today. They make both Alky and gas pumps.

Another vote for Pro Cam. They also have a rebuild service if you need to have one rebuilt and don't want to do it yourself.

I tried both C&S and Edelbrock and the two pumps lasted 3 races combined.

Steve - Have you had a chance to try out the pump that Burnout refers to at racepump.com? Just curious to see what you thought of it.

I've got one of those Racepumps.com pumps sitting here right now, got a friend running one this year too. I won't run mine for a while but when I do I will let you guys know how it works. Seems like a feasable good idea to me.

Hope your friend isn't running IMCA Stockcars, because Kirk's already said that pump aint legal....

49mtmod,

I spoke with Howard Stewart yesterday, and he sent me one of his pump's to try, received it today. I'm going to try it on my own engine first, and see how it goes on the dyno. Look's like a good piece, so we'll see how she work's. I've trusted Howard for years with our cooling system, so we'll try the fuel system now ;-) I'll give my opinion after I try it.

now tracy, you know i don't race IMCA, nor does this one. It's little gustin. Its a nice pump. I wouldn't be afraid to run one at marshalltown anyways, what are they going to do, kick me out lol. They need to remember who's name is on the memorial tower (cliff chambers), my grandpa. Do they still have his memorial race? It got to be such a joke that I quit going out here much anymore

Guess I know where I can borrow one for the outlaw shows I'll be running, eh?

Probably not. I'd have to have a new driveshaft, custom motor mounts, new linkages, etc, to be able to slide the motor back with one.

Does look like a nice piece tho.

yeah, from the way it's supposed to work, you won't need to run the belt driven pump anymore. You could always notch your stub?? I haven't looked at a stock car for quite a while so I couldn't tell ya.

Any feedback on that racepumps.com billet pump? It sure looks good on web site, etc.

Sdhnc29, xtreme12x, any insights on this pump?

Thanks.
