Greetings and welcome to just answer!!!!!
So did you pull the intake manifold?
It looks way too tight to remove the bolts without first removing the carb.
Yeah you will need to remove the carburetor also. Here is the picture and steps.
How much should this job cost?
labor is about 2.1 hours (about $210)
Could I ask one more related question?
sure go ahead.
Wouldn't it be simpler to leave fuel pump in place and just add electric
That is a good question. It would save some labor cost. Most shops don't want to be responsible for any "modifications" so usually they keep it factory. If you have a mechanic who will do it, then yeah. You still would have to install a fuel filter and run some wiring, but you would probably save some.
Thank you BigBob. You are truly an expert.
