A-906 for the MA was AC-1537632, and may have had 7632 stamped at the flange.
WO-A-1220 for the MB was AC-1537766, and may have had 7766 stamped at the flange.
I do not have either of these pumps on hand.

My garage: Restored Old Henry, and have had this WC51 on the road around 3 years now... Currently finishing a brace of Ben Hur trailers, and starting a 67 Galaxie fastback. Concurrent with the WC I restored a 74 TR6... Oh the joys.

Despite the arguments people are giving you,. I do know this to be correct. They were a replacement for the metal bowl, which was found to be a contributory factor in vapor lock in the early MB/GPWs. I've only messed with them for about 30 years so far... Done lots of research... And if people don't want to accept the truth, well, that's their problem...

Hi Scott,

Two different things are being stated here.

Ranger posted that glass bowled fuel pumps were installed at the factory on MBs / GPWs.

You posted that at some time in the life of a MB / GPW they received glass bowled fuel pumps as government issued replacements. I can see this as a possibility ( but so far unproven with hard data ) in the post war WW2 period.

So in your about 30 years of working around MB / GPW fuel pumps do you have any hard data to back up Ranger's statement that glass bowled fuel pumps were installed new on new MBs / GPWs at the factory by either Willys or Ford ?
