Default 1935 Ford fuel pump

Hello all, have a 35 Ford stock , all original pickup. Not worried about being totally stock. Thoughts on best place to purchase a fuel pump and maybe changing to one with a glass bowl. thanks.

Airtex is the brand pretty much everyone sells NEW.. We sell them, as well as rebuilt originals for the same price.

I like using the glass bowl FP on my '35 because I like to be able to see the gas coming into the bowl, and also the fact that I can use a filter in the bowl. I could care less about being totally original. I also like to rebuild my own pumps using alcohol resistant components, and internal spring pressure that produce no more that 2-1/2 psi fuel pressure to the carburetor(s). Have been using the same fuel pump that I rebuilt 13 yrs, and 35k miles ago.

Outright or rebuild and TEST most any flathead pump......2 1/2 to 3 psi when it leaves
my shop, "gay-run-teed". Email or call for estimates.

Although not correct I use a glassbowl pump for my 36. They are for checking debris. I prefer them. I wouldn't hesitate getting a charlie pump.

Should you decide on a glass-bowl pump, be sure to use a cork gasket on the glass bowl as opposed to a neoprene gasket....

I'll second the motion on a cork gasket. It seems counter-intuitive to me, but they just work better.

Charlie just did two for me. Quick turn around and great price.

Does anyone have a part number for a filter that fits in that bowl? I've seem some small Mann filters for lawnmowers (not the inline type), so I'd assume they'd work too.

I'd like to do the same, where do you buy the components?

At the car museum that I assist on repairs I was asked recently to look at a Chrysler that wouldn't start I found the cork gasket on the glass bowl have shrunk and was sucking air ,I believe A/C pumps in the day had a
neoprem or some type of rubber if you could get one of these you would be better of but most of us have no choice .
