For 1959, the 326 was the base Coronet V8. 1959 Coronet V8s were model MD2-L. On that basis, I think that the correct fuel pump is 1843 287 (See table below).

Searching for that as "1843287 1959 Dodge Fuel Pump" turns up a number of options for OE or replacement fuel pumps.

Do you have the original pump ? If so, rebuild it with a kit from Then and Now. When you use the original pump, you are assured of the correct pressure and volume. Aftermarket pumps may put out more than the recommended 5-7 pounds.

Great suggestion Ron.

All the OP has to do is figure out which kit he needs:

And then follow a video like this one:

Thanks guys, saw both of those on a search, thought I remembered an LA pump could be adapted by switching the arms.

If you have an original Carter pump, the four digit Carter number is on the edge. The 5th character is an 'S'. This is from my 55 Desoto.
