I'm assuming you've checked the "Crash Relay " to see if it needs to be reset. It should be up under the dash on the pass side on the firewall.I remember having a similar problem with a Ford and that was the answer. When it's activated it's function is to cut off power to the fuel pump.

Wow, I knew they existed but probably would never have thought about reseting it. I wonder how many good fuel pumps have been replaced? Do they make them for after market installations like street rods or could you take one out of a wreck and wire your pump through.

today I'm just glad to be out of the shop. It's like trying to do things the right way is a sin around here. Time to go on vacation and have some fun!

John, I have so much respect for you guys who rebuild a super rusty car. I have done a LOT of rust repair over the years, but it was all pretty localized. Window channels for instance, my shop was across the street from a glass shop so I did too many sixties and seventies GM cars to count. I sure as heck did stuff more severe but don't remember them (must have blocked the memory out ).

But this every square inch rust crap, haven't dealt with it since my brothers Roadster, we simply had it sand blasted inside and out as it needed work on every square inch. But damn in a garage with the limits we have, it's tough.

Brian

Just grab one from a wreck and install yourself, make sure you get the pig-tail as well as it will help in keeping the wiring attached

The fuel pump on my '66 Chevelle is wired thru the oil pressure switch. If the engine quits from a frontal crash, roll over or brake/wheel lock up ( I have a 4 speed), the pump quits too. It is a common 3 pole switch but I can't remember the NAPA number right now. I actually have a T at the block for this as I also have a mechanical oil pressure gauge under the dash.

Been working on the '38 for weeks now. Many surprises and set backs along the way but it is starting to shape up.
Went from this..manual rack, single quad tunnel ram.



To power rack, coil over conversion, Vintage Air/heat, Performer RPM and TH350 to 200r4 trans.

Bought a bunch of stuff, air hose, air tool accessory pack, 3 wrenches and a handful of sockets, new welding gloves, new safety glasses, and a hone for the wheel cylinders.

I used the hone already to clean up the wheel cylinders. Put it in my new drill press, which illustrated I need a vise there, even if just a cheap one. But I made it work. Held the wheel cylinder with one of my new welding gloves.

Also tried some to loosen the exhaust bolts on the caddy. Not much luck with the 3/8 MAC impact, but I didn't try the 1/2 inch CH wrench or even find my PB blaster. So I really didn't try to hard. Will leave it for the weekend.

The impact on stuff like that works wonders. Turn it down low and let it hit hit hit hit hit that hitting will break stuff loose if anything is. I will even go in and out turning it in and out. If it goes just a hair out you may not know it. While if you go in and out it will screw back in that hair, then on the way out it has a better chance of moving two hairs. Then over and over and over and next thing you know it's unscrewing all the way.
