Re: Is it possible to install a fuel pump incorrectly on a 292 Y-block

it is more or less impossable to put a fuel pump on wrong.you would never get the bolts started and if you somehow did you would soon hear something snap as you tighten the bolts.

Re: 1961 FE exaust manifolds and casting numbers.

you dont need the flapper if your only driving in warm weather.early manifolds used a flat exhaust pipe gasket.later used a doenut.you can tell by looking im not sure when the change took place.
