Fuel Pump, 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti
1963-64 Studebaker Avanti Fuel Pump
This is a new replacement fuel pump for the 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti or Studebakers with the R-1 or R-4 engines. Part number 1557213. This is one of those parts that you just can’t judge when it may quit working and put your car on the shoulder of the road, or a very busy highway. Worse yet, it can dilute your engine oil, by filling up the oil pan with gas. This could cause major engine damage. Since your local Studebaker dealership closed 50 plus years ago, it could be days, if not weeks before you can put your hands on a replacement fuel pump. What I do is install the new fuel pump, before the old one quits, then carry the old, still working one in the trunk as a spare.
