    Sounds like what happened with mine... what vent holes are you talking about though?

    I think that ANY fuel pump on a Studie is as easy as pie compared to some late model pumps I have changed on the new breed of cars out there !

    I remember a few years ago when one of our members posted a very garbled message and a lot of people made fun of him and posted some pretty vicious replies. Turned out he had had a stroke. there were a lot of I am so sorry etc replies. I hope this won't be a similar situation.

    Looks like this was my problem after all, so I am in the market for either a rebuild kit or a new pump for my 50 Commander. I see in the shop manual that there are about 50 parts to this thing, but can you change out the old rubber without taking everything apart? I am somewhat mechanically inclined, but I just don't want to get in over my head...

    I made a mistake on my engine info. It came out of a Champion. I'll try and post a pic of that problem.

    I pulled the oil pan off of the engine that is going in my '57 Transtar to inspect everything. It came out of a '50 Commander. I notice the fuel pump had been replaced . The bolts that secured it where almost touching the camshaft. So be sure and not just use any old "long" bolt because of clearance issues with the cam.

    Ah, ethanol strikes again! If I ever encounter this I suppose I will go with the new kits as well...

    I was thinking Hyball was using a google translator. English to another language and then back to English. I played with it when emailing a Mexican sweetie. Sent her $300 and never heard from her again. Later found out she got married and I paid for the wedding. Never trust a translator.

    Matt, Is there a number on the pump on the side of the flange where it mounts? If so post it and I will see if it is in my old fuel pump catalog and can hopefully tell what it fits. The late forties commander vacuum pumps look similar but the filter has a different angle. You can actually remove the screws on the top and rotate the pump to work just like you can for the later 6 cyl pumps.

    If there is not a number on yours I will post a picture

    HyBall gave up on the mechanical fuel pump in His '65 Studebaker. He then put a block off plate on the engine, and installed an electric fuel pump. (ticker)

    Milt, any chance you could post a pic of the Commander pump? I've got two NOS pumps with the extra stuff for the wiper motor. And I don't know if they're for a Champion or Commander.
