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. 

HORNS.

The horns were both stripped and the rust and dents removed. the bodies were reassembled after being repainted.KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

After reassembly they were tested and adjusted for tone. There is a high tone and low tone horn .KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA
