Day started great.
Fuel smell in the garage.
Looked under the B and screamed.

Thoughts on the replacement??

Thanks.

The same thing happened to my plastic-bodied aftermarket fuel pump.

I replaced it with an electronic pump (no points), made in Germany - brand name escapes me - Hardi? maybe? Not a problem since, ~ 6 years or more.

Yes, Hardi is the one to go for. Works like a champ.

Contact Basil Adams for your Hardi pump. That's where I got mine and I'm very happy with it and Basil.

Wouter,

Your site appears to have great price, but from what I can read in the information it does not ship to US.
Too bad for some of us, but great for those on your side of the pond.

Hardi it is, MOSS also resells them and these metal pumps are fully plug compatible with the traditional SU (washers at both sides of the banjo, electronic SU's have a seal on the pump side).

BTW I also renewed the hollow bolt after a few years, the Hardi just works on and on but the banjowashers leaked a bit: new bolt and washers and all is fine again for many years to come smiling bouncing smiley

PS Do not paint any pump, it is not necessary at all and may disturb the banjo junctions

I bought a used SU pump off eBay, sent it to Monsieur Dubois, and got back a fully rebuilt/tested pump for just a bit less than a new SU pump. Included convert to solid state points and set to 2.5 psi.

Hardi would have been less, but I wanted an SU.

I used to use those plastic pumps from NZ, and had the same issue of them cracking. I still have a few unused ones in boxes.

I know Mark Medynski and have bought new and rebuilt pumps from him. I recommend his products as he uses alcohol-resistant rubber so the pump will last.
