im going to go with the holley pump even if it is more expensive
That is a whole lot more pump than you will ever need, you won't even need the mechanical pump. A booster pump like Peter has will be less than half the price.

stoped at auto zone and had a discussion with the manager about my problem . one of the sales staff is a big block nut . after a long talk i agreed to put a new carb on . carberator to be provided by auto zone. after that i can do what ever , they think i have a bad carb. carb will be avail thursday.
they also have an elcctric pump 5to9 psi at 40 gph for $36 made in malasia the carter is $96 made in mexico. do we make anything ???
i forgot to mention johnny said that he had installed a zillion pumps on airstream mhs and airstream directed dealers to install at the break in the steel line in front of the rear tires and behind the step. i have a rubber splice in that area. that would only be three or four ft forward of where peter has his installed. going to re look at that location.
need someone to tell me where to install the oil pressure switch, thnx al

Airstreams!!!


The oil pressure sender is located above the filter, you will have to make a 'T' to run the sender and pressure switch.

got your message. peter
the tank is empty bone dry. looked at the space in the rear near the tank . not much room but on the outside of the frame rail i have a large open space. only thing i see there, is i would have to install a shield to protect the pump . the mud flap would stop most if not all trash . but if the mud flap came off it would be another story. probably will not use that space. i m going to look at the space to the rear of the step. i probably need to get the pump and see how it would fit in the spaces. thnx ]

oil pressure sender

got the pump installed and the oil pressure switch installed. got dark and had to call it a day
the pump is a made in mexico auto zone pump . 5.5 to 9 psi and 30 gph is the ratings. started the motor and it runs without the pump turned on . ill post a jpg of the pump install later i added the glass filter to the pump . just to insure that the tank isnt burping trash. should be clean but who knows. the filter will tell the story.
dont have a wiring diagram for the switch it is a ps-64 has three leads . gotta get the service man and see if i can find a drawing with the switch. then again i might take the ohm meter and find the two leads ineed.
the documentatin on the pump sucks dont tell you which lead is the hot lead.
if i dont rain tomorrow i plan to finish the install and do some testing and then switch the carb and see what happens.

jpg didnt make it. the switch i have has three terminals . if i understand this dwg i only need two to do the relay turn on . i dont think this sw will carry the current required to run the pump. will probably burn the contacts and limp home.
my oil pressure sender is in the front of the motor i have the switch installed . not much room there either, was glad it wasnt at the filter. the exhaust is in the way. for now i will use a toggle switch and look for a relay to isolate the pressure switch from the pump. and install later.
peter is going to like my glass filter install. will post a jpg of the pump later.

peter it is between the pickup and the pump. no trash yet that i can see.
finally got power to the pump, temp hook up . and took it for a ride up the mountain . was i suprised it did great got over the top doing 45 mph with the old carb.
came home swaped the carb for the new rebuilt carb. this carb was different . the four barrel pullof was different and it was not as tall as the other one.
took the rig for another ride after i set the idle on the carb. went up the mountain was i supprised topped the mountion doing 52 mph . both trips were with the electric pump on. on the way home i busted the temp switch in the off position.
didnt have time to do the jpj before the sun went down but first thing tomorrow. need to do the mixture adjustments i think it is running a little on the lean side.

Good deal on the improvement, Al!
When I got stuck at the Colorado/New Mexico Border this summer, first thing I did was to crawl under the rear and visually inspect the glass filter. Looked good to me. So I exchanged the Ignition module. No change. So I removed the filter and noticed upon closer inspection that it was clogged up with tiny particles. That was after 1200 miles. The next time it was 600, after that 400.
And remember I also removed my tank and cleaned it out as good as I could. But it seems that the more I drove the more stuff got knocked loose.
Thats why I moved the big canister first in line.

i didnt have a lot of trash in the tank on any of the previous drains . i havent moved the big canister yet but that can be done with a little work.
i couldnt belive the power i picked up . the old carb i had was no good from the git . it worked but not like the new one.
im thinking i will change out the manual fuel pump while im at it. it is a lifetime auto zone pump. cost to replace would be the price of gas to pick it up. if that pump is working correctly it should provide enough gas. but we know it doesnt. is it worth the effort????

Its the canister type fuel filter I have been running my mouth about. Fram P1146G Fuel Filter. It used to be mid coach, in front of the step. It will take 30 years to clog that thing up. It looks and mounts just like an oil filter, but is even longer.
