  • fuel pump cross-over?

    My brother picked up a new in box Carter fuel pump is M835SB equivalent to AC4459 printed on the box, and I was wondering if it worked for any Studebaker applications.

    There are no direct crossovers from a Stude. V-8 pump to any other make, and that Carter? number is not for a Stude. IMO.

      Check with Phil Harris at Fairborn Studebaker. If it is a 318/340/360 MoPar pump, he can bend the arm just right to make it fit a Studebaker V8, and they work well.

      BTDT; I have one of Phil's MM (Modified MoPar) pumps on my 1964 Daytona sedan and it cured the vapor lock problems with which it was plagued. BP

        I gave Bill Cathcart a whole case of these NOS fuel pumps and he said that he had no use for them. I mentioned their use on Studebaker V8s and he wasn't familiar with that. I guess that he is really a six cylinder guy.

          I have used the 318 pumps on Stude Trucks with no modifications. But the lines won't hook up on a hawk because of the frame. Havn't tried it on a Lark.

            Somehow this turned into a conversation about Mopar fuel pumps - but the reality is that the Carter and AC numbers given cross to a International Truck 6 Cylinder engine.

              Well, now we know that. Earlier-on, no one knew the application of the subject pump. BP

                Thanks. I'll tell him it's likely strictly International application.

                    Regarding the Carter pump: before discarding it, check and see if it is the same size, diaphragm-wise, as the Carter pump from your Studebaker. Maybe it could be gutted, and the internal parts used to rebuild your Stude pump.

                      Is this the High-performance Edelbrock pump or the Airtex pump? (Both Available At FLAPS)

                        'Looks like a "regular" Airtex pump to me. BP

                          Good to know about the Mopar 318 pump being that the Stude V8 unit may soon be NS1
