The FPMD fits ALL
engines with a cam drive fuel pump
Pump Magneto Drive)
4.8 offset (center to center)
We have been manufacturing offset mag
drives for over twenty years and have created several different designs for
different applications. Since the blowers have gotten larger and larger, room
for the magneto in the conventional location on top of the engine has vanished.
All fuel injected race engines have a mechanical fuel pump drive off the
camshaft and this provides an excellent power source to drive a magneto as well.
Just unbolt your fuel pump and bolt the LOWE FPMD on to your engine or fuel
pump extension and then bolt your fuel pump back on to the front of the FPMD.
Now install your magneto (SuperMag 1 through 6 or MSD magneto) on to the FPMD
mag drive housing using your standard lock clamp. Set your timing and you are
In standard locations the bottom of the
magneto (or distributor) drives the oil pump as well and if you drive the
magneto from another power source you must still install a oil pump drive. We
have these available as well.
Features of the LOWE 4.8 FPMD.
Reliable belt drive to the magneto
Triple option for magneto drive with no changes, two pin, four
pin or Dunn drive all in one.
4140 fuel pump drive shaft strong enough to drive the fuel
pump and magneto
Dual pattern on mounting flange
Trimmed bottom case to allow offset drive to be moved closer to
engine and clear most
Keyway shafts and hubs.
Seal in the fuel pump drive shaft to keep oil out of belt
Support mounting holes provided in housing
Anodized housing for appearance and durability
Predrilled and tapped fuel pump mount flange
Full sealed ball bearing design for long
Separate oil seal to
prevent engine oil from entering the inside of the belt case.
Belt tension never needs adjustment.
Fully enclosed belt drive housing to prevent damage to
Easy to disassemble to inspect
All stainless fasteners
Cable tach drive option
The 4.8 offset drive has a totally enclosed belt to protect the belt We allowed
the mag drive shaft to be flush with the back of the housing so it can be
observed if the mag drive is turning while the engine is cranking to start. This
was provided to allow the turner to trouble shoot problems more easily .
Our unique drive hub insures that your mag
drive will fit your mag, 2 pin, 4 pin or Dunn drive, all fit.
Our universal hub has both a two pin and a four pin drive provisions as well as
the Dunn drive cross. Slide you mag on and tighten the clamp.
In supercharged applications if you
mount the FPMD directly to the front of the engine with out using a fuel pump
extension the FPMD must sit at the 12 oclock (or straight up) position. Some
conflict with the idler pulley can be a concern. Mounting it this way does limit
the diameter of the bottom pulley but it will move the fuel pump back as far as
possible which in some cases can be a big benefit as fuel tanks and other
chassis hardware may conflict.
Moving the FPMD out to the end of a fuel pump extension allows the FPMD to be
installed at any angle desired as the FPMD will sit in front of the blower drive
belt. This also removes any conflict with the blower belt idler pulley.
Fuel pump extensions for this application must be robust as it must hold the
weight of both the fuel pump and the magneto. The LOWE fuel pump extensions come
in two lengths 2 ½ and 5 and also have the option of a notched flange to
accommodate applications such as small block Chevys that have a very close crank
to cam center line. The fuel pump extension is notched to clear both a harmonic
balancer or larger blower pulleys and timing rings. The LOWE fuel pump
extensions are CNC machined from one piece billet aluminum and have a bearing
supported drive shaft with a seal on the drive hub to keep oil inside the engine
and not let it drip out at the end of the pump extension.
The mounting for the offset mag drive to
the pump extension or engine is with the standard symmetrical four bolt patter
of 1/4" bolts on 2.75 bolt circle. We provide two sets of mounting holes for
two reasons. It offers the customer more options for mounting
or all can be used for additional strength.
Our offset mag drive housing has been
clearance milled housing to give more room in tight positions and clearance
milled to allow larger blower pulleys in certain cases.
The LOWE FPMD has two extra 1/4" holes
on the top which can be used for either attaching a support bracket to make the
mounting more robust or provisions to zip tie the plug wires to go inside the
All the components are fully cnc
machined to exacting standards for the ultimate in fit and finish.
The complete housing is anodized to
protect the aluminum as well as improve the appearance.
The fuel pump mounting face is drilled
and tapped for a standard symmetrical four bolt pump mounting on a 2.75 bolt
circle. This will accommodate all Enderle 110, 990, 1100, 1200 pumps and Hilborn
175 series pumps and all Waterman Big Bertha pumps. We did not provide a three
hole asymmetrical bolt pattern like the small pumps as doing so would require us
to increase the material on the bottom of the housing where we have removed it
for clearance and vary rarely does anyone use the small pumps in a supercharged
application. If it is necessary to use a small three bolt
pump you may use one of our short fuel pump
extension which has a four bolt mount and both a four bolt and a three bolt
pattern on the pump flange.
If you want to use the FPMD in the
original distributor location for Chevy applications we provide a drive that
doubles as both the oil pump drive as well as a FPMD drive.
The standard LOWE FPMD has an offset of
4.8 from center to center. In quantities of 10 or more we can make any of the
following length offsets. Sixty to ninety day lead time from receipt of deposit.

been called "the best fuel injection book on
this planet". Now only $99.95AUD If you only learn one thing
it is worth it
The FI book has been this price for ten years now, my publishing costs continue
to rise and soon I will have to raise the price.
