Where have you folks mounted your electric pumps? I have a holley black and can't find a good place where it won't get burned, crunched or massaged to death by cables.

Thanks,

Scott

On my 69 I also have a black pump. Had a blue pump for over 7 years before the motor/pump seal went out. My car is backhalfed and the pump bracket is welded onto the new frame rail.

Before the backhalf it was in just about the same location, only bolted to a small plate that was welded to the original frame rail.

I'll send a pic to your e-mail. I have one, but it's not on the web anywhere or I would just post a link. The pic shows the blue pump, but the black one bolted right in it's place.

Later,

David Cole

Left rear frame rail, above the rear axle is good.

Dave_C:
Is your Holley 'Black pump' just as noisy as the earlier Holley 'Blue pump' was?

My Blue pump is now leaking at the motor/pump seal as well, and so I'm looking to replace it. I've got to think there is a pump out there that is a wee bit quieter than the ol' standby Holley Blue pump....

The black pump is about the same. But the sound is a little higher pitched. I went with it mainly because I didn't want to rework my fuel lines and wiring. The black pump fits in the same place as a blue pump. the motor is a little heavier. More windings I guess and the pump housing at the bottom is taller to make room for a a taller rotor/vane setup.

Needed a new pump after I disovered that the pump seal is not serviced by Holley. You have to buy the whole lower housing. It costs half as much as a new pump. The black pump is rated higher than the blue by a fair amount. The blue is 110 gph free flow, black is 140. The big difference is at pressure though. The blue is 70 gph @ 9 psi. The black will flow 120 gph @ 9psi.
