Hi Guys,
I have a 1966 140 4-speed that has the seemingly common problem of empty  
carb bowls after only a couple days of not running. As the car is not a daily  
driver, a long start procedure is hard on the battery and starter. Someone  
suggested an electric fuel pump to fill the carb bowls before trying to  start the 
My questions are these:
1. Can an electric pump be installed in the main fuel line? Will the  
mechanical pump pull gas thru a non-running electric pump?
2. Will the gas pumped by the electric pump get thru the mechanical pump to  
the carb bowls or do I have to run a separate fuel line from the electric  
pump directly to the carb bowls.
                                 Thanks in advance,
                                 Jim Bennetts
