Fuel Pump BBC Install

Been awhile since I installed a mech Fuel Pump, got a new Edelbrock one to replace my ol tired and pitted looking Holley (still works, just looks bad even after a cleaning and polish.)

I know this isn't a hard job, just don't ever remembering greasing or lubing the pump hole.

However, was told I should pack the back of the pump where the spring and arm is with grease and also the hole on the block.

Is this correct? I always thought the reason for the gasket was the block allows oil into the back of the pump are to lubricate. I never remember greasing or lubing pump or pump hole before install?

Re: Fuel Pump BBC Install

the grease is used to hold the pump rod up in the block for easier installation of the fuel pump, unless there is some new design of the pump that I am unaware of
I cant remember on the BB if there is a bolt in front of the engine to remove and use a longer bolt to hold the pump rod in place

Hi Scott
I used the Cam Lube supplied with my Isky Cam.
"gob" it on both ends and along the shaft, shove it up and have the Pump/ Gasket ready to go.
Find the Shaft end with the Lever and push it up, will probably have a little tension depending on where the Push part of the Cam is.

Re: Fuel Pump BBC Install

Thanks fellas, I apprecaite it. The way some of the stuff I was reading was saying to pack with grease and I just never remember doing that, I do remember using assembly lube, but not packing with grease.
Thanks

This picture is of a small block and I don't know if you can do this on a big block.

Just for the record ... the BBC rod galley does not intersect with either of the two (2) accessory bolt hole provisions on the right (passenger) side of a BBC, like that of the SBC family.
These are both 'blind' holes on a BBC, leaving these bolts out on a BBC does not present a potential oil leak point as it does on the upper bolt of a SBC.

If needed, you can remove the plug just under the pump mounting location to either remove the rod for service/replacement or use the hole to hold the rod up in place if you are having trouble installing a pump.

Thanks John, I didn't think the BBC was the same as the SBC, but wasn't sure.

Re: Fuel Pump BBC Install

Coat the pump rod shaft and end in grease and stick it in the freezer, pull it out and install it asap and it will stay put while you put the pump on. Have rte on both sides if the gasket and put it on the pump with the bolts in the holes of the pump, tighten them up and good to go.

The easiest way is to put the shaft in and hold it against the cam, have a friend pump the starter until it is on the low side of the lobe, no struggles and it goes right in without the spring fighting you.
