    I had this question in one of the other rooms, and didnt get much insite. Does a late 80s early 90s TBI 350 have a cam lobe to push a mechanical fuel pump push rod? Or is there just a place to mount it, needing a block off plate. If not, will a stuck push rod hurt the engine? The rod is stuck where a rod should be, but the engine can still be turned by hand, doesnt get caught on the rod at all.

    My 89's 305 neither had the hole bored for the pushrod, nor had the lobe for the pushrod either

    if it's not catching the rod, it's not going to hurt anything.

    My 87 didn't either. Even if it does hit the pump rod it won't hurt anything. That's what it's designs to do. All that will happen is that it would slide to to the block off plate and sit there.

    I asked this question a few months ago when I tried to switch to mechanical FP. Nope
