I've just installed a new 350 HO Deluxe into a 67' Camaro. I am having fuel system problems. The mechanical pump won't work, the fuel pump pushrod does not move in & out when the engine is turning. I installed a Holley "red" elect. pump, but it seems to flood the carb. Is this engine intended for a elec. fuel pump, or will the standard GM sb chevy pushrod the wrong size?

I will venture a guess that your cam does not have the eccentric lobe to drive the fuel pump pushrod, or, the pushrod is not on the lobe if you installed it yourself.

However, you need a fuel pressure regulator with that elec pump.
