Sorry to hear about your dilema. I have a 74 Midget and I had much 
the same problem happen to me recently. Tapping it does work as a 
short fix but really other than using very fine sand paper (or a very 
thin nail file) to clean the points and cleaning the filter in 
parrafin I don't think that there is very much more that you can do 
to the SU pumps. One suggestion I received was to fit a manual pump - 
don't know if this is really possible especially on your B, but all I 
did was just replace the unit for a new one and up until now I havent 
had any problems. It does sound though as if your armature and coil 
is faulty and I think this warrants a replacement unit. Hopefully you 
only picked up a faulty second unit.
