    I also think you may have a Champion pump. You can buy a Commander pump fairly cheap on ebay, then buy the modern diaphram kit from a Studebaker parts vendor. I bought my modern diaphram kit at the...

    My feelings exactly.
    I finally gave in and signed up for Facebook last week, just to read the ads and jokes my neighbor and brother send from Facebook.

    I changed mine on my 1950 Champion exactly like Gary just mentioned, and no bleeding was needed.
    The switch was still under NAPA's 2 year warranty, so no cost to me. I made the warranty by 2 weeks.

    I'm almost always in overdrive at speeds over 35 MPH.
    I'm surprised you don't have it in overdrive when going 45 MPH.
    I'd try overdrive and see if you still have bucking.

    I'm wondering if the crap gas isn't boiling over and flooding your hot engine, which makes hot restarts difficult. That's the problem my 1950 Champion has, so since I am now using an electric fuel...
