  • Duel action fuel pump?

    How do you run the vacuum lines on a 48 Champion? Thanks!

    Hi Gary,
    Let's hope you actually have a "dual action" pump instead of a duel action type. Those "duel action" styles are always drawing on one another. It's ugly![V]

    For the Dual Action pumps, the vacuum line off the intake manifold is connected to the outlet port of the vacuum pump. The inlet side gets plumbed to the wiper motor.

    The vacuum side of the dual action pump only starts to work when engine manifold vacuum drops. Thus it's not straining to pull against the wiper motor line when vacuum's up or the wipers aren't turned on.

      Thanks Mr. Biggs, I don't know which style Pump it is? It has the fuel pump on top and the vacuum pump on the bottom. It is an AirTex 9218. Again Thanks1

        Ahh... I was having a little fun with words, Gary. "Dual" = two of something - as in two pumps incorporated into one unit. Like you have. Also as in "Dual Exhausts"

        "Duel" = as when two gentlemen use pistols or swords to settle an argument.[:0][xx(]

          Thanks Mr. Biggs! I realized this the second time I read it. I must have been in my serious mode? I always was better at Math than I was English. Have a great Studebaker Day!!! [8D]
