Carter Dual Action Fuel Pump Rebuild
Part 4 -
December 4, 2010
The next step in the rebuild is to install the check valves in the vacuum
section. To do that, you'll need to make a tool to drive them in. Here is
the tool my dad made for me to do this. It has a .88" OD, a .74" ID, the
hole is .33" deep, and it is about 3" long.
Once you have the tool, the check valves drive right in. The only trick
to this part is to make sure you have them in the correct positions or
you'll have no vacuum signal to the wiper motor.
Next, install the pulsator diaphragm. Make sure this is installed
correctly or the fuel section will not work.
Line up the reference marks made earlier and install the two large flat
head screws. This would also be a good time to install the fitting for the
fuel line. Make sure to use some liquid Teflon sealant on the threads. For
six cylinder cars, the assembly will look like this when completed.
Up Next: Assembly continued.
