Lid of the fuel pump

I was manufactured to put the lid to the tank fuel pump.
This part has been discontinued.
This component is aging.
I have a check of fuel leakage.
I sell After the check is successful.
This component can be used 456GT, to 550,575.

I did that a some time ago but I used the 575 pump without the disintegrating rubber parts.

thanks your infomation.
It is very helpful.
Aging of the 456GT is in progress, with a plurality of vehicles, this component is collapsed.

In my design the 575 basket with pump is hinged so it makes insertion into the tank much easier.

There are no rubber parts including the hoses.

The 575 basket with pump is much less expensive than the 550 pump.

I did the whole thing (two pumps complete) for about the same cost as two Superperformance covers alone.

Dave,
I remember that you had opined that you weren't sure this design would fit in a pre-2000 fuel tank. Did you ever come up with a final answer on that? Because I have an itch to do this in my car also :-)

HI Pete,

John has tested them in his spare tank but has not yet installed them in the tank in his car because he's been fooling around with the engine.

He says they fit fine in the 99 and earlier tanks. I don't know if its possible to insert a non-hinged design into the tank because the 575 baskets are quite a bit taller than the 550 baskets.

It might be possible to adapt that Super Performance cover to accept a 575 basket, I don't know. We never tried it because we had some doubts about it's electrical pass-through so I made our own.

Pete, I think it would be a real fight to get a fixed bracket pump into an earlier tank. I think you'd need to hinge it somehow. Or perhaps that's why they did that through screw the way they did, so that you could put the pump assembly in the tank without the cover, then mount the cover to the bracket. Otherwise, I surely wouldn't have made those covers with a through screw, which is a potential source for a leak.

If you're going to use those metal covers, you might want to weld the screw to the pump bracket, facing toward the pump cover. Then put a Dowty seal or Stat-o-Seal over the screw on the interior side, pass the pump cover over that screw, then put another Dowty or Stat-o-Seal on the exterior side, followed by a flat washer & the nut.

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
