Fuel Pump Diaphrams

Guys,

I asked John Kipping who is, no exaggeration, the worlds authority on the
1147/1300/1500 Triumph engine, he has been involved with them for more than 20
years and his company, based in Coventry, were the largest and best UK
supplier of Herald/Spitfire parts. John moved to New Zealand last year and his
company is now under new management (it's now called Canley Classics) but I'm
still in touch with John by email, my question and answer are below. More info
to follow.

John:
I've been asked by friends in the USA ...... if replacement fuel pump
diaphrams for the (AC?) mechanical pump used on 1147 Herald/Spitfire engines
are still available from any of the Triumph specialists ?

I know replacement pumps are but some owners just what to replace the
diaphragm.

Dave,
Basically no problem, the small (ie Herald/Spitfire) fuel pump is still in
use as a diesel lift pump on the Perkins engines fitted to Maestro/Montego.
The rebuild kit (BAU5570?) I managed to track down made in Turkey, and we
used to sell it for ?9.50, this was I think a third of the Moss price as
they had some highly expensive substitute. The very nice looking close to
original fuel pump itself with priming lever is made somewhere in the former
Yugoslavia, and was better quality and much cheaper than the AC Delco Canada
ones where the lever pivot pin always fell out, somewhere around ?20. The
pump kit includes the two one way valves. The six cylinder as original pump
is made in Italy, and should not be confused with those ghastly repro pumps
with the biscuit tin arms that often break.
