Thanks again for your help and for being on the "forum" with your info.
daljaz wrote:Hi Bob, I am glad to anwer your questions. First, the replacement pump is larger diameter than the original and the replacement has built on brackets that line up with the original mounting holes, so the chrome strap type bracket is not necessary. The screws you see toward the engine are screws on the replacement pump. The original fuel lines are smaller than the inlet and outlet tubes of the original pump, but I replaced them and the new rubber fuel line stretched to fit the larger inlet and outlet tubes of the replacement pump without much difficulty. Some silicon spray or other lubricant may ease the installation of the hoses. Of course it is necessarry to use good hose clamps. The chrome exhuast pipe was cut off to the length of the new pump and it fit so tightly that it was not necessary to attach it. The wires to the pump run underneath and inside the chrome exhaust pipe at the bottom. Just be careful not to cut or skin the wire insulation when the exhaust pipe is forced on. Finally, yes, there is a fuel shut off valve that will stop the flow of fuel until the job is completed. Hope these answers will help. If you need more info, do not hesitate to contact me.
