    Default Installing Holley Mechanical Pump

    I wanted to install a new Holley 130 GPH pump that was given to me..I have a Holley Blue Electric I want to replace. It is a 454 (1975-1979 LS7). When I took off the block plate to install the mechanical pump there only appears to be a hole about 1/2 dia. at a about a 45* angle...don't see how if I install the pump arm in this hole the pump is going to work..I know I'm stupid but what am I missing..thanks

    You need the fuelpump pushrod! One end goes to the Cam the other end rests on the pump arm. ARP fuelpump pushrods 20.00

    Do you have a roller cam? If so, you need the pushrod with the bronze tip to ride on the cam side. If it is a cast cam, them the standard pushrod will be fine. Just thought I would through that out there.

    New problem..The rod is about 6" long...no matter where I crank the motor over the rod still stays out about 2". I looked through the hole and it looks like something is blocking it from going all the way in. And yes it is a roller..

    Look there's the front door....there's the back door and the upstairs window( btw I really like to paint the eaves!) You my friend are in the Backdoor.
    Now stick it in the front door angle it towards the upstairs window, It might need some grease to hold it up though! Lol

    OK, now you're confusing even me. If you have to grease it, that sounds like the wrong hole. And you are recommending grease to make it stay in??? WTF.

    That's some funny shit..I don't mind admitting I'm a dumb ass..my old lady always says the same thing...that's the wrong hole! Now that I've got it in the right hole and it fits, should I be concerned about the rod..it does not appear to have anything special on the ends and it is a roller cam..can you tell from the photo if it has the right tip not to cause damage to the cam..thanks for all the help. I even had to laugh..This is the only push rod they have in town unless I order something special..should I go with it or pass..thanks
