Fuel Pump Frustration

Hi all,

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

  Just out of curiosity, how (or did you) hook up the kickdown linkage
on the Holley? I had a devil of a job getting it to work on a 302/C-4, I
finaly came up with a solid rod working aginst a spring inside the
cut-off factory piece. If the trans thinks you're wide open throttle,
it'll want to engage with a lot of gusto.  By the way, for anyone
considering this combination, a vacuum secondary 4 barrel works a lot
better unless you really like to boil the tires, while those Chevy
quadrajet guys roast you.

If you have exhausted all the other external factors, carb/fuel, timing,
points, distributor shaft play, plugs, plug wires, coil resistance,  then I
would check the valve clearances.

First a good compression test to determine any differences between
cylinders is one indication, but not proof postive.  A vacum test may also
show up problems...look for overall low vacum and/or variation in reading.
I don't have the specs handy(they are in the red Ford Truck shop manual)
but most vacum guages have green/good zone and a red/low zone.  Flicking
needle is a sign some cylindars are affected, ie certain valves.

In my case between the two tests it appeared to be the valves. So I checked
the clearances and some had really closed up.  I have adjustable lifters so
fixing this was not a big problem. I also had a few of the valves refaced
and lapped the seats where required......you have it all apart so why not?

This is a more complex undertaking on a flathead than an OHV but really not
all that difficult.  The bending over the engine compartment working away
down at cam level is a pain so it will take longer than you think.

After I had finished the motor ran really smooth, so it was all worth it.
