Fuel pump restoration
The reconditioned parts are laid ,plus two new bearings, O rings for the housing and concertina seal for the Pump shaft .
The armature was tested and the commutator polished ,the mica seperator segments were cut down slightly and the new bearings fitted.
There are several washers,spring type drive plates and packing seals under the impeller,all designed to last a long time and prevent fuel leaking into the motor housing.
The motor housing contains the field coils and brushes these were all checked and found to be OK. it was then fitted with new O rings and tested to ensure it was OK electrically.
Lastly ,the pump mount rubber and metal bracket are fitted. As this is a very early injected car ,the pump is mounted on it’s side hence the odd bracket. a new fuel pressure hose is shown here ,A New hose from the tank to the pump will have to be made .As this also differs,in that the hose is screwed into the tank,not simply slipped onto a nipple as the others are.
The horns were both stripped and the rust and dents removed. the bodies were reassembled after being repainted.
After reassembly they were tested and adjusted for tone. There is a high tone and low tone horn .
