Original Fuel Pump?

Hi all-need some help-with my engine out, i replaced the fuel pump (was working fine, but seemed like there was some seepage around that area, and with just painting the engine/bay and not going concours i just replaced it. So, this a pix of the one that came out-i think its original and i want to put it on ebay, but i want to be knowledgeable about it-I know its a Carter CARbureTER button top, but thats about it. Not sure if its the original or not, so hoping someone can educate me. Under the top CARbureTER stamp and the made in usa stamp, there is a "3". On the opposite side of the pump in that same location, there is a "0-1719" stamp, and there is also another stamp right next to where it bolts onto the block that says "3911S". Please understand that i'm NOT trying to market it for sale here-i don't want to anger anyone into thinking i'm using the forum for that-i just want to be more knowledgeable about it! Thanks tons for all the help! (and yes-for those that have PM'd me, i'll be posting pix as soon as i get the engine in )

Your photo isn't there.

Amateur restorer. Well, sometimes I have been paid for it. But not right now.

The 3911S stamping is the Carter model number, which is correct for a 65 A or C code 289. On the other side of the mounting flange is where the date code is stamped, usually lightly stamped. What is that number?

That's a December 9, 1964 date code. Correct for any 65 289 A or C code built between about late December 64 through the first of February 65.

Good deal-thanks IG65-thats exactly what i needed to know (weird as my car is a 66-i know it has a reman. engine (there is a reman tag on it) and it looked like they kept many of the orig parts-wonder how in the heck i ended up with a 65 pump on a 66!). So just to get a bit educated on this, i know the order is day, month, year-so for the month, did they not start w/A? (thats what was confusing me to begin with-that and the "A" at the end but i read somewhere that the A was a "shiftcode"?.

The A denotes first shift.

Thumbup 65 pumps

A lot of people use the 65 pump for 66, as the filter can is a better filter than the small one that screws into the carb (personal opinion!). When I had my shop, every small block got a 65 pump ($35 back then), as they were plentiful and cheap. Even my 69 351W has an NOS pump that I just installed.
