Thatís quite possible but I canít believe that one should expect a pump to have never been touched in all these years and make a kit that works only on those that havenít been. Mine does still have the AC diaphragms but they definitely donít disassemble without damage. If this one does screw together, I see no way to unscrew it as the shaft appears to be swaged in place permanently.

If you are still trying to remove the diaphragm, I notice the service manual writeup has you remove the pivot pin so the cam follow lever and spring can be removed before the diaphragm.

Thank you Howard. Iíve never ever had to remove the arm on this type of pump and I did manage to get it out last night. You simply tilt the diaphragm back to unhook it but there was a burr in on the hook and the original diaphragm was very stiff (I think it was an original!) keeping it from tilting enough to come out of the slot.

Relating to the comments made in this post after #3567 in relation to the proper oil filler tube, I discovered that I have three different types. The one in the center is what my Patrician had on it when I bought it over forty years ago and was recently changed to a straight one, such as that on the right (but with the proper cap).

However, it is apparently supposed to have the one on the left which tilts it toward, and nearly touching, the engine. According to the experts here, that was done after it was realized the cars with power steering had the pump blocking the airflow into the crankcase and having it tilted, the air was able to flow into it properly.
