"If the mechanic said the carb gets clogged with gas, then that tells me it is flooding out. You either have too much fuel pressure or the floats are set wrong.  What electric fuel pump did you put on?"

It would be a complicated engine change due to a change in the 67’s frame that required changes to a number of engine components under the hood  not making that engine an easy replacement in your case 

Basically to many thing need changing to make that a non complicated swap 

The simplest engine replacement for a 64 engine is to be rebuilding your current engine ( less labor intensive ) 

Any engine you use will need you to be sure your engine has the correct  crankshaft to match up to the current turbo transmission that is now behind the engine you now have in your model car 

Only certain models use the turbo 400 trans in 64 while all others use the  older Hydromatic trans that has a different engine crankshaft to match up to that trans 

It is best to have your current engine rebuilt in a 64 — for sure !

The 67 engine after a lot of additional labor required will also be devaluing the car as it is not the engine that belongs in that ride at time of sale often being a turn off to a buyer 

Buyer of our cars do know what they are looking for in most cases and the wrong engine in our year cars is not one of those desirable things to be seeing 

Enjoy

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 3 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
