If your car uses a carburetor system and does not have fuel injectors, then it includes an accelerator pump. It is responsible for spraying fuel into the carburetor though is now replaced by modern fuel injectors. Occasionally, vintage and classic old cars will need an operational pump.
This pump supplies fuel and works in unison with the vacuum distributor, providing a timing advance that helps handle proper acceleration (helps to reduce jerking). Through frequent use, these pumps will often need to be replaced and a carburetor rebuild is often done with this procedure.
Faulty pumps create a mismanagement of gas input that will more often than not damage your car’s internal components. Additionally, your car will have jerky or compromised acceleration capabilities and this can leave you susceptible to accidents. It is nearly as bad as a faulty accelerator cable. If you drive a car that still uses an accelerator pump, we recommend you have it repaired immediately by a qualified expert.
One of the best car experiences I've ever had. 10/10. Booked and quoted on the phone. George was a really nice guy. Knowledgable and practical. Only did the work that was needed with a head's up of when to expect future service. All for a competitive price while I continued with my normal day in my own home. Why didn't anyone think of this before?! I will definitely use them again and recommend to my friends.
