New Member needing Fuel pump spacer advice
« on: June 30, 2019, 03:08:28 PM »
Hi Guys, a newbie here hoping for some advice about fuel pumps and spacers.
Ive tried the search feature and found some reading but im now more confused lol.

Ive had my moke sitting for about 6months months since I changed the fuel pump.
I was sold this pump for my 1974 1100cc moke
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Austin-Morris-BMC-Mini-Moke-Clubman-Cooper-Mechanical-Fuel-Pump-848-998-1098-PTZ/282631532167?hash=item41ce26ee87:g:mWoAAOSwEzNc9Tgv:sc:AU_StandardDelivery!4550!AU!-1&frcectupt=true

I used the spacer that was on the moke already, but it looks home made.

I havent had the car started since the fuel pump changed aw the wife had a kid and have been distracted from finishing the job.

Ive got back to it today finally, I dont think that spacer suits, Im actually concerned Ive been sold the wrong pump as well.

would that pump listed above be correct? and if so what thickness spacer should I use?
thank you in advance.

Hi,

do you have the old fuel pump out of the Moke still laying around?

If so you could measure the distance from the mounting face to the tip of the  arm and see what the distance is and compare that to the new pump.

Also can you post up a picture of the pump and spacer you have fitted as it may be that you have the larger spacer which is normally used on the 1275 blocks.

And by chance I happen to have borrowed a new fuel pump from someone tonight for some other reason but it is the same brand and from the same supplier as the one in your link, however the part number on my box is 3435 and lists it as suiting all the various A-Series model engines.

What is different is on yours the outlet is on the same side as the inlet which this one is unfortunately not.

I dont have the original pump any more, I dont remember binning it, but I must of because it is no where in the shed.

The part that is making me question if this is the correct pump is because when i googled that brand and Mokes it gives me the 3435 not the part number in the listing.
I should have researched this before i did the change, not knowing about the variations in spacers.
thought this should be a pretty straight forward Fuel pump swap.
The seller told me that one was correct.

Hi,

on the box in the picture above the bar code is a list of engines, does it mention Mini or Morris 1000/1100 or 1275?
I managed to Zoom in on the picture and it looks like the box you have lists Mini and Moke models so it should be okay, might just be the position of the outlet that has changed the part number.

I have updated your access to enable you to post up photos in the gallery.

thank you.
Yer I dont have the box any more sadly either.
I know the new pump isnt pumping correctly and the engine wont start.
I put this down to the spacer not being correct, problem being I dont know what spacer should be used with this pump.
the seller seems tobe a part store so only knows what is written in the parts list I guess not particulars like spacers and things like that.
Maybe its just easier for me to order a new pump with the supplied spacer from the moke specialists?
