Looks like a standard 2002 fuel pump driven off the cam.

Thanks - I’m wondering if it’s the early pump with the lever that connects the push rod or the later one with the spring.

All of the pumps that even remotely look like yours have a lever and long pushrod.  The newer round can Pierburgs use that large spring and a shorter pushrod.

Good to know. I was adding to my parts stash before the corona hit (mail service to Canada is poor in the best of times) and bought a Pierburg replacement pump w/lever purely on faith. I realize the car came from the factory in ‘67 with this type of fuel pump but it’s always hard to guess what POs may have done during the first 43 yrs of the car’s life before I bought it in 2010.
