1974 2002 long fuel pump


Go to solution Solved by Daily02,

Recommended Posts

My fuel pump -1974 2002- is leaking like crazy from the cap that is held on with a single screw. I believe there is a filter under it. Does anyone know of a replacement filter and gasket? Thanks.

 

Regards

If you cant find one you could make your own easily enough with some cork gasket material found all over Amazon, probably also the local parts store. 

Sharpe scissors and exacto knife, easy peasy.

The only thing I would add is to use thick gasket paper the pressure pulses of the pump will keep compressing the cork IMO.

If everybody in the room is thinking the same thing, then someone is not thinking.

Minus one for cork.

 

I'm guessing the filter is a screen, which you can probably just clean and reuse.

 

Can you open it up and share photos with us?

 

Photos are fun.

 

Gasket cutters are fun too.

OLFA makes a modern one.

Sealing surfaces had corrosion, scuffed it off, and cleaned gasket. Reassembled and fixed.

Water in your fuel at some point, you can minimize that by keeping fuel tank full. Reduces condensation.

Also, use Ethanol-Free Gasoline, which will not absorb water.  It's friendlier on your carb's guts too.  (It's back up to $5/gal. here; but worth every penny, compared to Corn-Gas).

 

EDIT, congratulations.  I love the "I cleaned it and now it works again" fixes.  It's funny how often that happens.

It was unbelieveable how much it leaked. Every pump fuel shot out. The car hadn't been started in months after a very damp Winter. I will run some Iso Heet for the water. I also ordered a new pump just as a backup for this 50 year old unit. It was lucky there was no fire with all of the fuel spilled.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
