Ah, another book I need to get! I have suspected the pump for quite a while, and I
have a good 1969 pump from a bug, that I am going to install, when I find the time. I
know this pump works, the bug engine had plenty of pressure before disassembly.

I am pretty sure it was lined up well, but then again, this is the sort of thing one
does not think about. I will see when I get the darn pump out.
