Hi ,

Has anyone ran into this before?

I have a 71 429 in my truck.  I recently purchased a new Holley performance
mechanical pump(110gph) to support the new 850 double pumper I put on it.
The problem is this, I install the pump and it doesn't work.  Totally
isolated it with gas in and out and nothing.  I put on my old pump and it
works.  This is the second pump from Holley, so I don't think it's
defective.

Is it possible the cam concentric is slipping from the additonal spring
pressure this pump may have?  Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help

I think I found the problem with the Holley pump.  The actuator arm is a
different shape than stock.  This results in the Holley pump having a arm
that is 7/16 inch lower than stock.  I don't think I am getting enough
contact with the Cam eccentric to work the pump.

Can anyone recommend a good performance mechanical pump(110gph+) for the 429
Ford?

Thanks in advance.
