Hey
Anyone know where I can get a fuel pump filter sock for stock el falcon fuel pump.
Mine is stuffed and don't want to buy a new pump just for a sock .
I tried eBay but nothing came up ?

Why they throw it out ? Gay ,
Well my sock is falling apart lol
I was at work went to start the car . Didn't start . Straight away I knew it was fuel pump.
So here I am in the work carpark ripping it fuel pump out . And the sock had fallen off and sucked up dirt etc . So called up dad who brought me a spare I had . I used the old sock to get home but it won't be long till it falls off .

he threw it out because he didnt think fuel pumps get damaged by dirt, and "the car has an inline filter" not to mention the fuel tank had s**t in it that could be sucked up :roll:

some people... lol

yeah well its been through 3 2nd hand standard rodeo pumps in the past year or 2 and the car only ran about half an hour after my almost new falcon pump was put in before it stopped, now a good friend would go down to the auto elecos where the car is now and tell them to try the fuel pump, and maybe replace it and put the filter sock on but he was silly enough to put it inthat way ill let them work it out

A 255 will fit in the standard cradle, has to be the internal pump not the external. Yes the walbro sock is different, but, modify it. Use the material and re-manufacture it into the same shape as the E series one
