Fuel Pump Rebuild Kits

I was wondering if anyone had a good lead on where to locate a rebuild kit for AC fuel pumps. There was only one site that I found and it seemed pretty promising but I tried calling and sending an email early today (Wednesday) with no response. So I thought I'd send out an SOS just in case this doesn't pan out.

I actually just heard back from Hal at classic-preservationand he has a solid kit as well as a good price at about $10 less than then and now. He was just a bit slow with replying yesterday. Hopefully not slow with shipping.

Please post your results with that kit. I need to rebuild my fuel pump and carb and would appreciate knowing your level of satisfaction with this one.

Sure thing... the gentleman I spoke with was out of town for a week over the holiday so it's going to be a bit slow getting here but I hope to have it in my hot little hands by the weekend and give it a go.

OK, so I just got my fuel pump kit from classic-preservation.com in the mail and checked it out. It's not missing one single piece that can't be removed from the pump. It seems like a pretty thorough kit and now I suppose if anything goes wrong then I only have myself to blame. I like those odds!

Thanks, I wasn't familiar with them when I was searching. I actually have to revise my previous statement about the completeness of the kit. There is no filter screen and one of the valve hats was not assembled and that was a very delicate task if you don't have the right tool for crimping the three metal tabs uniformly. I have one other issue with it and it might actually be something I'm missing... I'm not sure. The pivot pin for the rocker arm is 1/4" shorter than the original and all hardened steel. The original stuck out both sides and was flared. Consequently I had to grind off one side of the pin to extract it. I went to two machine shops and Tacoma Screw which is the largest supplier of these sorts of things in the NW. Everyone looked at what was sent to me and looked at the original. They couldn't tell me where to get anything like what was on there and couldn't tell me how the new one could possibly work. I'm baffled and slightly irritated. If had known it was going to be that big of a problem then I could have had the pin pressed out so I could reuse it like I am having them do with the diaphragms. Am I just missing something very simple here? I was wondering if I'm supposed to use the new one and plug the holes with something? Anyone have experience with this sort of thing?

And in edit to this statement I broke one of my own cardinal rules... read the instructions carefully and closely. It explains that it's necessary to peen around the holes of the pump body to hold the new pin in place. I feel sheepish. BAA BAA. Give me a break though... I'm getting hitched next week at our home and I've got the stress of marriage brain. I believe that's an actual medical condition.
