Fuel Pump Challenges With 230CI


Hi folks

Yesterday, I put the 3rd new fuel pump in 5 or 6 years, maybe 10,000 miles, on the 230CI in my 65 Beaumont.  Tried a few other things, but it was clearly the pump.

there seemed to be lots of gas in the line, and gas ran out of the pump once I set it down but it wasn't pumping a drop to the other end.  The only odd thing I noticed was the gasket was broken when I took the old one off.

The last two pumps have been Carter pumps which seem to come highly recommended.

Any similar experiences, recommendations, things to watch for, etc?

Thanks

Your pump style appears to be the correct rebuild-able style. Used through 1966, then they switched to a sealed type for the 67s.
I haven't had one apart so I don't know what is actually contained within, but it almost sounds like the membrane might be ruptured. Ethanol can do that, and so can the passage of time, especially on NOS parts that have dried out for decades.

Do you have a filter before the pump? Sometime crap from the tank gets in and holds the one way check valves open.

An update on this - I realized I didn't install a Carter pump the last time but rather a Delphi, which is made in China.

Carl researched the proper Carter pump for my car and I have enroute from Rock Auto.

Thanks for the comments and help.
