I have a brand new fuel pump which i purchased by mistake for my 64 starfire. I was told that it was for a 64 dynamic 88 and i thought it might be the same as mine but it wasn't. The only number that i can find on it is M9785.
Does this look like the one?

You need a short socket and a wobble extension, a good light and a steady hand to R&R that back bolt. The pumps can be rebuilt (designed for it BTW) but do NOT get an older rebuild or an NOS, or you'll be pulling it back off in a very few miles. Modern gas destroys the old diaphram materials quickly. Make sure the pump was rebuilt using materials compatible with modern fuels.

Rebuilding one is no big deal and can be done with ordinary hand tools. Modern fuel compatible rebuild kits show up on ebay all the time, or there's people who do it. I always suggest purchase of a factory shop manual if you intend to do any work on your car yourself.

Marinus, your pump looks like a Pontiac pump. All 1963-64 394 pumps are identical except A/C car pumps have a return line that is plugged on non-A/C applications.

I have about 3 fuel pumps for my car. All of which don't work. I imagine they need to be rebuilt. Instead of buying one from Fusick or rebuilding it I just put an electric fuel pump in. Much more dependable, but a good mechanical pump works well too.

You know, that doesn't look like my pumps either. The ones I have all have a small sight glass or fuel filter built into the side.

yah, I just talked to a guy at the parts store and apparently unless your going for performance it really doeasn't matter what pump you use. Thanks guys for the input, I'm going with the electric pump and forget about that back bolt on the original pump.
