I got a 79 Crew with a 460... the fuel pump has dual inlets... what gives? Noone can match it up.

Spook, sounds like it was for one with saddlebag tanks? I suspect that if you replaced with one for JUST ONE TANK, you would be good to go.

Just a guess. Ask Steve, if anybody knows, he does.

No... they are staggered? sp*... One's behind the rear axle, the other is in front of the rear axle. The guy at Napa says that it's (the second inlet) is a VENT ??!? Wtf???

sounds like dual inlets is for dual tanks. trace the lines. and the problem is you cant find a pump to replace it?? im kinda confused. if for some reason you cant get a dual pump to work then get one made for a single line and run one of the tanks dry and just dont use it. or you could continue using both tanks while using a single pump by way of taping the rear line into the front line via a fuel "T" block. you can get those in jegs or summit.

A dual tank system still only has 1 inlet at the pump. If it drew from both, then it would suck air as soon as 1 ran dry.

One side of the pump is the inlet, from both tanks, the other side of the pump is the vent, and will pump excess fuel back to one of the tanks

It looks like this, doesn't it? -


If it does, it's a Master #60036 found at Schuck's. While you're at it, pick up a Haynes repair manual, and repair your fuel lines to match what the book shows
