Actually, the SU fuel pump I mentioned WAS a replacement, also purchased
from Seven. I put that in back in the fall because I didn't care for the
Delco fuel pump on there (which worked like a charm, by the way, except it
got very warm).
I am not sure if my SU was a rebuild or new, now that you mention it.
Whatever, I know it did not last 20 years.
