Paul, and all,
I was just going to start rebuilding an original AC fuel pump (with priming
lever) for my TR-3A. Currently I have a repro pump from Moss on the car
that seems to work fine. I was planning to put a rebuilt original pump on
the car not so much for originality, but because I have been told the pins
on repro pumps are only held in by a friction fit, and can eventually work
their way out causing the pump to fail catastrophically. The originals, I
have been told, have a groove and clip setup to retain the pin. Am I
looking for trouble (rather than avoiding it?) by rebuilding this original
pump? I hadn't figured on a rebuilt pump creating too much pressure. The
rebuild kit is from TRF.
As always, thanks for the benefit of your experience.
