Re: [T3] Mechanical fuel pump questions


Grinding or adding gaskets will reduce the stroke of the pump even further
if that's the problem.  Anyone got a Type 3 fuel-pump push-rod to measure?
Could be it's a Type 1 alternator one, which is shorter.  I guess you may
have toŻGhe stroke to make sure it's enough.  Is it free to move in
the plastic mount?  I had a Beetle engine where the rod kept seizing in the
mount.  If so, change the mount; they swell with time.
