what fuel pump is original to 427 Cobras?
« on: January 13, 2024, 04:09:49 PM »
The Shelby parts book lists C5AE-9350-G as the pump for Shelby 427 Cobras. However, it doesn't list a manufacturer or a model number.
My 1967 Ford Master Parts catalog lists AC pumps 0294 and 6974 and Carter 4441 as "427" pumps of various years.
My Carter pump catalog lists AC model 4918 for the 427 engine.

My Master Parts catalog doesn't list a C5-9350-G pump.

So, what pump(s) actually came with the 427 powered Cobras as delivered?

The Carter 4441 pump was typically a service replacement for the 427 Cobra. I have always seen the counter intuitive AC marked pumps used in years past on the Cobras but I haven't had the extensive experience as others have.

Jim,
   I have a book listing most of the parts Shelby American sourced in 1965, including the C5AE-9350-G pump, for that, it has two vendors listed,  Ford and AC Spark. Could be AC via Ford, but who knows? See attached photo, hope this helps.

According to the April 1965 Ford Master Cross Reference List, the C5AE-9350-G is the C0AZ-9350-C, which is the A/C 0294.  It should actually be 40294, which is what is stamped on the pumps.  Itís a Ford MPC typo, in my opinion.

Yeah, Allen has had that for sale numerous times for awhile. It is a 4918, C0AE-9350-E, which was eventually replaced by the C0AZ-9350-C, 0294 pump.
