Fuel Pump Lobe

The Fuel pump lobe on the camshaft on my 88 F350 is worn out, I took the front cover and cam gear off and the lobe comes on and off, can I buy just that lobe somewhere? I can't seem to find it anywhere, not even Ford has it.

No, its two pieces and the camshaft I just bought from Advance auto parts did not come with it, I have pulled two lobes off off cam shafts I had laying here and all of them were worn out, not as bad as mine, I put my fuel pump in wrong.

Thats what I've been running but I dont like it b/c the truck doesn't get slower when the filter stops up it just cuts off with no warning. I have tried several different fuel pumps and with a big load behind it they can't keep up.

What pumps have you tried? Factory is 30gph flow and like 4-7psi pressure, they got some 100-gph electric beats out there now, can't imagine one of those having issues keeping your truck supplied with fuel, seeing how even at WOT you'd be using less than half of what the factory pump moves...

they have 350gph if you really want. i think if it can feed a 3000hp alcohol car then it can handle a 185hp idi.

Finding a fuel pump eccentric, International Navistar might be able to come up with one.
