Electric fuel pump

Recommended Posts

I have an AC 720 and I am having a hard time getting fuel to carb. I have noticed moisture around the mechanical fuel pump. I am thinking the fuel pump may be leaking and not picking up enough fuel. Can anyone tell me what kind of an electric fuel pump may help my problem and where are the available? Thanks for any imput.

In my experience, stay away from the little black NAPA ones. I went through two of them in short order. First one the coil shorted out and actually caught fire. Second one the coil just failed open... In both cases, they didn't last more than a few months... Another forum member reported having similar problems with the same pump. It's the one in Joe. O's post in the thread that Dave posted. I ended up getting a different wiggler pump from the local equivalent to Harbor Freight and it's still going strong.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
