Fuel Pump, Water Pump, & Oil Filter Housing

Monday, January 25th, 2010

The Trans Am restoration continues.  A Flow-Kooler water pump was purchased from Summit.  The water pump and fuel pump were cleared with Rust-o-leum’s Engine Enamel.  The clear should prevent aluminum oxidation in the future.  The fuel pump was purchased from Napa Auto Parts.  The fuel pump was for a ’73 Pontiac.  It turns out that the fuel lines are on opposite sides of the car for ’73 and ’81 because the fuel inlets point in the wrong direction.  On the ’73 the inlets point across the motor.  This is a problem since my fuel lines are on the driver’s side.  I could get by with looping a fuel hose around to the inlet but getting the later pump should make the setup cleaner and more safe.  Lastly, the oil filter housing was painted metallic blue to match the block.  The engine should be ready to start in a few weeks.
