Do any of these blocks come with the fuel pump hole correct?:

Do either or both (hopefully both) of these blocks come with the hole for the fuel pump pushrod drilled correctly? These are the one-piece rear seal 86 and later blocks which can take either roller or flat lifters.

i will if i have to---there's no real "problem" there. But somehow i just can't shake wanting to use a mechanical pump. (i want to stay with carbs indefinitely).

A certain 1-pc block---not nessesarily the ones listed about is used with the HT383 and zz383 engines and they can use a mechanical pump. So, i am hoping there is a way to get a roller ready block AND have the fuel pump pushrod provision.

It is a hit and miss situation on one piece seal blocks. It depends on the application that the batch or production run of new engines was originally intended for. Some are fully drilled with a plate over the area and some are blank. You can't go by casting nos. No particular rhyme or reason. To the aftermkt user.

Funny how things change, when I was a kid, the electric pump was considered an improvement for the often tempermental, failure and vapor lock prone mechanical pump. Finding an electric feeding a set of Stromberg 97's was the hot set up.

No, i'm not trying to imply that i think elec pumps are bad. It's just that i think i would prefer to use a mechanical just to keep things simple and straightfoward since i want to stick with carbs.

i've got nothing against electric pumps and really when you think about it and elec pump may be just as simple and as reliable as a mechanical. But in my personal case right now using an electric would involve wiring and an external powersource, which mentally, to me, makes it more complicated.


Now, if i was going with Fuel injection (which i'm not against either, just not now) then yes, of course i would need to go electric. And in that case, Carter has my vote.
