Finishing up the engine rebuild and wanting to replace a leaky fuel pump. I'm wondering if the original pump had the built in priming lever or not. I always thought mine was original but from what I see on TRF's and Moss' site they are levers. However VB does not.
What style was the original?
Yes I know it can be rebuilt with a kit from these 3 suppliers.

If you are considering a rebuild I would highly recommend Then and Now Automotive (http://www.then-now-auto.com/product-category/fuel-pump-kits/).
Their kits are more comprehensive than what the big 3 provide

Eric, one word of caution.
Notice the fuel pump kit from above does not have the lower spring in it.
There is a reason, on the kits from the other dealers the spring is very strong and will give you 5 or more pounds of pressure, not what is needed. Use you old spring no mater what kit you get.
Same goes for replacement pumps, change the spring out or test first.
The one on the right was in a new pump, left original, lots more pressure on the replacement even though shorter.
