Source for 351C fuel pump eccentric
#1
Hello everyone,
while taking my 71 351C engine apart, I have found that the original 2-piece eccentric cam drive for the fuel pump is a little worn and loose.

I could not find the part at my local parts supplier and even large suppliers like rockauto don't have the part.

Can anybody tell me a source for the right 2-piece eccentric?

Thanks in advance.

Michael

I think I may have one at the race shop I'll look Tuesday when I'm there.

Future plans; JGC steering box, Cobra brakes and... paint, interior, etc.

When I die I want to die like grandpa, peacefully in my sleep... not screaming, like his passenger.

Michael, I found the one I have. You're saying yours is a little loose? How loose? The one I have is in good shape but there is still .030 - .040" clearance per side. These do not fit together tightly.

Oh, I thougt this looseness was a sign of wearout. I have measured the tolerance and it is appr .025.
Then the eccentric might be reusable. I will check for scratches in running surfaces.

I'll get back.
