Mechanical Fuel Pump Brass Filter

PostPost by: slowsprinter » Thu Jan 31, 2013 10:53 pm

Chaps

Was stripping down my mechanical fuel pump and managed to put my finger through the little brass filter gauze thingy that sits on top of the assembly inside the glass bowl.

Have done a quick trawl on line to see if I can find one but have drawn a blank. I don't really want the expense of having to buy a replacement pump on ebay just so I can get one. Does anybody know of a source for this small part? It does not appear to be in the service kit that Sue Miller supplies for example.

Thanks
Ian

I didn't know they were available. I've needed one since the early 1980's. What is a good search term in Ebay?

All

I am wrong. I ordered a fuel pump service kit from Sue Miller and the little brass filter IS part of this kit, arrived today. Should be a good option for you DeanG.

Nothing heard from O1 but I'm chilled, let Frank get on with it with no interference from me. Allows me to get some jobs done in my own slow way before I have my major expedition to pick the body up. Will be taking phots later today to update my progress, I have got wheels and tyres on my chassis now but it prompts a few questions to you guys.

Stay tuned later

What cost for the service kit ian? And is the pump the std twinc vers' ...?

I might fit one to the pump I took off and store it with the other original parts I've kept.
