Mechanical fuel pump removal

Hey guys trying to remove the mechanical fuel pump from the top of engine,got the two bolt remove but feels like something is holding it. What else did I miss? Could it be that bottom fuel line? It just move upwards about an 1/8" and stops.

Thanks in advance

when I did mine the first time it did that and I gave a little extra tug straight up and it came right out.

Re: Mechanical fuel pump removal

I was able to break it loose with a long pry bar but feels like something is holding it. I will try again another day. I will try to pull on it a little harder. Is it just and arm riding on a cam or gear?

Re: Mechanical fuel pump removal

with bolts loose, hand crank or just have some one tap on the key switch to slowly rotate the engine and watch the pump lift up as the cam pushes the lifter up and stop at the high spot. This does 2 things. It brings cam on high side so lifter will not fall in engine and it pushes the pump up

Re: Mechanical fuel pump removal

Ok i will give it a try. I will be using this engine for a swap into a SD. So when its all the way up it should pop out? Do i remove the lifter after pump is out?

Re: Mechanical fuel pump removal

Bump the motor over until the pump moves up. What that does is position the cam straight up and the push rod won't fall into the motor. i used a claw hammer and popped the pump up. Worked great, just like pulling a nail out of a board.

Re: Mechanical fuel pump removal

So what holding it in there? So if I'm using this motor for a swap in my SD I would have to plug the fuel pump hole coorect? What size freeze plug would I need? What about the lifter and the push rod?

Thanks

Re: Mechanical fuel pump removal

There is a O ring on the bottom part of pump it seals it in block and sometimes it is hard to remove. IFIR it is a 7/8 inch freeze plug for the hole. Hope this helps Jeep

Re: Mechanical fuel pump removal

Hey guys I got it out today just needed to pry on it a little. Push rod stayed in fuel pump. Okay so it should be a 7/8 freeze plug? Should anything be applied to the freeze plug?

Thanks Guys
