Anybody with a 69 camaro with a 350 motor running an aftermarket fuel pump? And did you have clearance problems?

I have a 68 with a Holley mechanical fuel pump - 110 gph. Clearance is very tight, but my pump fits. I put the pump on the motor while it was still on the engine stand so I don't know how hard it is to actually get on with the engine in the car. I have 1/8" clearance between the pump and the frame below. The inlet fitting was also very tight - I had to use a close 90* fitting to clear the motor mount bolt.

I believe frames and engine mounts are identical 67 - 69, so they should be the same.

I have a 69 with a 383 (same block as a 350), and I couldnt fit my Carter 120 gph mechanical pump. I ended up slapping a stock pump on to get the car up and running, now the engine starves for fuel when you keep it floored. Found out later that my car originally came with a six, and the frame mounts position the engine closer to crossmember than true V8 mounts.

I purchased repro small block mounts that I may put in, but am also considering keeping the six cylinder frame mounts currently in the car and notching the frame for clearance instead. Havent decided yet...not sure what to to patch hole in frame with if I decide to notch it.

Good luck with yours...Please post whatever solution you use and how it worked.

The Carter Street Super Pump fits very well.

It has a 120 GPH free flow, regulated 6 psi, and a clockable lower housing. The inlet and outlet positions are very similar to stock.

A Strip Super Pump is available but requires an external regulator.

Either is about $50

I mocked it up last night with a motor mount on the engine and the frame mount bolted to that. It looks like a 45 degrss fitting coming out of the inlet will work. Not much clearance though.
