Question: How do I remove my fuel pump?

Answer:

The universal answer is very carefully especially if you have a type “A” pump 1931 an older. The are extremely brittle and usually fall apart in your hands. Every Car is a little different but most cars all you have to do is remove the 2 flange bolt and disconnect the fuel and vacuum lines.

Question: Can I Buy just a diaphragm ?

Answer:

About 90% of the pumps we do you can’t simply install a new diaphragm, most must be reloaded. In addition some company’s will offer a reloaded diaphragm. Our costumers run into a huge dilemma that when they install reloaded diaphragms the diaphragm lasts about 20 minutes. This is because in the earlier days fuel was made of many different components which didn’t hurt rubber like gas does today. We make our diaphragms from a custom made material that is compatible with the %10 ethanol that is added in the gas today.

Question: What shipping company would you reccommend?

Answer:

UPS is the best way to ship to us. Make sure you purchase insurance on your package in case of any lost or damaged parts.

Question: My water pump was just rebuild and it leaks?

Answer:

The first thing is to see if your pump has a big gland nut that contains packing. If it does, then you need to tighten it every now and then to seal the pump. If you don’t have a packing type pump try running the car for about 5 minutes and see if the leaking stops. The carbon seal needs to break in to seal perfectly some times.
