Edl 1721 fuel pump does not fit

Hey guys,
Despite being marked as compatible I have just discovered that my new Edelbrock fuel pump is too big to install on my 67 Camaro. Actually I run with a 350 small block with a 383 stroker kit. Can anyone help me figure out how to create room or find another way to install it?

Many thanks for the help

That is the correct number. Unless the wrong pump was in the box it should fit. What is the exact problem?

If the correct fuel pump is in the box, it will fit. I installed on on my '67's 327 before it went back in a couple months ago. It is tight looking, but will fit & work.

What are you hitting? Or what issue installing it are you having?

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

I have seen, where an incorrect engine mount and frame stand allowed the engine to sit too low and there was not enough clearance to install the larger pump. A suggestion would be to remove the thru bolts on the engine mounts. Then transmission mount (first remove your distributor cap). This should allow the front of the engine to lift slightly (watch so the fan doesn't hit the shroud or the distributor hits the firewall). Now, install the pump and return engine to it's original position, making sure the fuel pump is not hitting the frame. You could also lift the engine slightly with a cherry picker to accomplish the same thing. Good Luck !
