Another fuel pump question.

Okay guys, engines aren't my strong point so I've got a stupid queston. If you take out your mechanical fuel pump and install an electric one do you have to take out the rod/shaft that fits up to the mechanical fuel pump or can you just leave it in the engine. I left mine in but a guy I work with thought I should take it out.

i would suggest taking it out because you dont want that thing in there bouncing around. it could very easily break something.

Yes, You need to remove the pushrod, and put a block off plate in place of the pump.
