Need Info from Those Down Under

New member here. I have been an engineer at Mallory and Erson Cams for 13 years. Recently I started a new company (RobbMc Performance Products) with an ex-Mallory engineer. We specialize in products for less popular (ok, less popular in the states) V8's.

We have recently started manufacturing and selling high volume mechanical fuel pumps for several less popular engines including the 351C/M/400 Ford.

I know this engine family is more popular in Australia than in the states so I would like to find a dealer in Australia. I know a few people at Rocket Industries because they carry Mallory products. I contacted them but they have shown little interest.

Any suggestions?

PS. I will try to check in on this forum a couple times a week. Please feel free to ask me questions about Mallory and Erson products either via a forum thread or by email. I designed many of the current Mallory and Erson products.

Re: Need Info from Those Down Under

Thanks Falcon. I'll give them a try.

Other than Panteras and a few Torinos and Mustangs, there aren't a lot of Clevelands still around anymore in the states and most of them aren't racing. I hear that the Cleveland is still used for racing quite a bit in Australia. This is a link to a website showing the two pumps:

Think there would be any interest down under?

Re: Need Info from Those Down Under

Nice looking pumps.

Yeah, Holley mech pumps were avail until a few years back, but it seems the only mechanical pumps avail for a Clevo these days is a stock one. Had to throw my Holley one out because I couldn't get a rebuild kit for it.

Try some of these guys. They are some main frachises or dealers here who would sell a lot of those parts.

You really know how to warm the hearts and minds of Internet shoppers with:

"Taxes and shipping charges will be added to all orders." ...though, as your FAQ seems to indicate, that taxes are added only to Nevada recipients. You may want to clarify that where the previous sentence is used. Something like: "Shipping charges will be added to all orders. Nevada residents add 7% sales tax to net order."


Also, you may want to consider using "guage" instead of "gage" in your narratives concerning fuel pressure gauges. Gage is most often a transitive verb and guage is most often a noun. Though technically correct--in the same manner that "pretty" also means "very" these days--the preferred usage is guage.


I'd probably try contacting Terry Parker. He makes the Funnelweb inlet manifolds. He may be interested. He's going to be talking to people about fuel system-related components anyway when they contact him. It may be a worthwhile collaborative marketing opportunity.


I'd be interested in a 110 fuel pump, but at $200 I think that I'll just have to stay interested. I bought a Carter 23 gph pump that is supplemented by an electric in my 1960 F100 (sitting atop of a '72 Ranchero chassis). My 4V 351C engine only makes about 420 HP.

It would be nice to have a 220 on my Cleveland powered dragster, but I don't have a fuel pump eccentric on the snout of the cam...but, it would be a lot easier to install that way!

Re: Need Info from Those Down Under

I don't know anyone who runs a mechanical fuel pump. At $200 US that would make for one bloody expensive fuel pump. But i wish you luck any way.

Re: Need Info from Those Down Under

Now you've got me confused.......gUage doesn't exist in the dictionary.

Gage is the US version of gauge, although hardly used?

A fuel pressure thingy with a needle and numbers on it (noun) is a gAuge.
