Hi all, just a quick question regarding the fuel pump.  I tried to replace my mechanical one a while ago and found that the new one didnt work. the main difference seems to be the arm shape and length.  My one is the original (as far as i can tell).  Are there different sized spacers for the pumps, as i can only find the one?

 

few pics (cant seem to resize them!)

Thanks (and sorry for the daft question)

It looks as though part of the lever has broken off the shiny one.  Lol

 

 

Send it back and buy an electric one for a Morris Minor and mount it near the wiper motor.

The old one in your pic looks incorrect. Distance from flange to lever tip on my old and new pumps is 54mm and uses the standard spacer block.

That's how some new ones come now .. with that plastic piece to sit on the cam pump lobe.

There are two different pump spacers, the older one is NLA so you need to use the correct spacer if changing to a new style pump.

Best bet is to fit a Facet pump under the rear seat base and blank off the hole for the mechanical pump.

There are two different spacers on British built cars and if yours is South African it could be different again. I'll see if I have two to measure but all my cars run electric pumps.
