But you didn't show how much of an issue it is to install, more was the motor inframe, like most would be if you broke down while traveling.

Just gonna let you know that I also have a mechanical fuel pump on my '84 Ford Ranger with the V6 2.8L (S code) Cologne engine in it and you helped me out a bunch with this video. Thank you so much!!

Frank Dogwin says:

Help. I have removed the old one but when I insert the new one I don't feel the resistance from the cam. How do I orientate the cam?

Joeysixtysix says:

I am having a hell of a time getting to the mounting bolts on my 74 F250 360. Sure looks easy here, I can hardly reach them with a finger let alone a tool.

Marco Velazquez says:

is it just a bolt on part? do i need to make any special adjustments? like fuel pressure?

Mr. Geist says:

The Mr Gasket junk pump is in need of replacement on my 72 F100. I see that there is already a Carter (maybe) pump attached to the block, so guessing I can just run some fuel line from that to the carb? Do I need to to do anything special before starting the engine? I need to get one of those outlet attachments you got there…
