355 Fuel Pump Support
on the 355 the original rubber supports now are on dissolution due to the petrol composition of the last years, less use the car and more those supports become damaged early ....
The dissolution of those supports do a black sticky material inside the tank that some times obstructs fuel holes on pumps and on pipes ....
The original supports are not available, but pumps are Bosch and are available, out of the Ferrari shops, becasue was used from more cars of that years.
Pumps have same length but two differents OD diameter:
- 355 = 52 mm
I recently done for a mechanical workshop who work on Ferrari cars (that asked me a solution) a new fuel pump support for those cars, my solution is definitive forever, because I used the PTFE material that is insensible to the petrols.
My support have same interface dimensions of the original, and the pump be fixed by means of clamp like the original, that will be installed on the groove of my support.
Follow some pictures od the F355 new pumps support and the assembly on the original basket pump (the assembly pictures are refered to the F550 version that have 38 mm OD diameter pump)
Two weeks ago i sold two for the F355 of a friend, his mechanic was entusiast of this solution.
If some one is interested I can supply.
Best Regards at all
