Carburator EGR

I don't need any EGR stuff for a 1965 326, right?

You are right, EGR valves were not used until the early 70's, Smog pumps (A.I.R.) were introduced in 1966 for cars built and sold only in CA.

One other carb related question. I just put a new fuel pump in the car, but I'm planning on purchasing and installing a 4 barrel carb to replace the 2 barrel very soon. Will I have to upgrade the fuel pump again? I didn't think of this until now.

The fuel pump I bought flows 5.5 to 7 gph. I haven't seen anything about gph ratings on the carb sites. Though, maybe I should look harder.

I believe the 326 and 389 2-bbl, 4bbl and tri-power used the AC DELCO, 40455 fuel pump.

Awesome.

One more quick question since you're so good at responding (thank you very much). My original, and might I say awesome looking AC fuel pump was leaking so I replaced it last weekend. Can it be repaired?

They can be sent out to be rebuilt. Check in Hemmings Motor News. I had it done with a '37 Chrysler I once owned.
