    Default D Special fuel pump

    My fuel pump needs a rebuild as the fuel flows back to the tank overnight and excessive cranking is required to start
    Are the pumps rebuildable?
    Are new ones available?
    Thanks

    Believe so. You can buy a later type pump that is a sealed unit or look for a diaphragm kit. Ask Roger Parker or look to CTA/Franzose/Citroen Classics etc..

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Goss rebuild kit parts, fitted. They looked awfully close to the R16 pump internals, this pump looked like an early seventies Dee unit.

    Have you pulled it apart too see if anything is causing the 1way valve in it to stick open On a rarely driven later DS without the manual pump lever, I'd be tempted to fit one of the boat priming bulbs. That way if it hasn't been started for some time, you can squeeze the bulb to get some fuel upto the carby and save cranking it for ages. You also score a new 1way valve in the primer bulb too then, so it won't drain off over night.

    Electric fuel pump , at the tank (concealed) in series with existing fuel line.
    Use a LPG gas valve cutoff relay to make it legal.

    Much more convenient than bulb "milking" and dirty hands or opening the bonnet in the rain and forgetting to latch it.

    Subaru Leone is the ideal doner pump. Complete with the anti vibration mounting kit, steel protective stone shield, filter, accumulator etc etc.

    They are behind the RHS rear road wheel, clip two flexible lines and undo 2 x 10mm nuts.

    You need to be quick they sell quickly from the DIY wreckers.
