fuel pumps

Post by gerry » Tue Sep 11, 2007 10:31 am

hi there!

the mechanical fuel pump of my 3619 (the one in front of the engine) needs to be replaced.
does anybody know where to get one of these (new, refurbished, repro)?

and how about the electric pump: who restores these devices?

tks a lot!

Hi Gerry,

You may only neeed a new membrane for the electric pump. Have you tried bench testing the pump to see if the rod moves up and down? The electric pumps are rebuilt by Francois, the mechanic I work for. He has three right now that he's rebuilding.

Have you asked the usual suspects on my suppliers list for mechanical pump? Rutlands, Partsource, GT parts, etc.?

tks Tom!

I contacted Partsource (no answer yet), but not Rutlands and GT parts (will do it right now).

regarding "Francois": does he have a shop?

Garry,

You say the mechanical pump needs to be replaced. What is the problem? Can't it be rebuilt?

well..., due to circumstances not entirely explainable, the pump broke, literally, in the shop where my car is being serviced.

so I must weld the (two) parts together again, but I'm not sure if this welding will resist the pressure.

Was it the rod that supports the plunger?

Gerry, I believe the pump body is made of some pot metal material and may not like to be welded.

dear Rudy,
no, it's the body that broke.

Gerry,
I've got an extra 365 GT 2+2 Fispa mechanical fuel pump that needs a new diaphragm. The body is good, I'm not sure about the size of the fuel inlet and outlet fittings. If you want it, it's yours for the cost of shipping. Email me if you are interested. thomas.kizer@sympatico.ca

Tom (I mean Tom Yang),
do you know anything about fitting a "365 GT 2+2 Fispa mechanical fuel pump" into a GTE?
tks!

Gerry,
I'm sorry for the major wild goose chase. As I mentioned in my last email, I found that my pump won't fit your engine. SORRY! Maybe someone here can help out a fellow FERRARISTI with a spare pump body. Tom Shaughnessy undoubtedly has one in some parts bin but it won't be as free as the one I offered. It will, however, probably fit, unlike mine.
Good luck.

The FISPA SUP 150 pump was also used on the Lancia Flaminia motors as well. Maybe trying to locate one from a Lancia parts source would avoid the dreaded phone call the person who 'serves our automotive needs'.
