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.
