The VW Alternator Style (Short Rod) Fuel Pump will fit all 1200cc (40 horse) through 1600cc Type 1, 2 & 3 engines when used with the
99mm short drive rod. VW originally used this style pump on 1973 through 1974 Beetles, 1973 through 1973 Super Beetles and 1973
through 1974 Karmann Ghias that came equipped with an alternator. The fuel pump includes new upper and lower gaskets.
This Fuel Pump has a flange the sticks out past the mount. Requires the use of the Shorter Pump Drive Rod #113127307A (99MM Length) or the rod will not fit flush with flange.
Am I ordering the correct Fuel Pump for my car?
Alternator and Generator Fuel Pumps look identical on the outside, but they mount differently under the base. Pay attention to where the metal operating lever is located underside.
- Does it stick out past the base?
- Or does it sit recessed inside the base?
This is essential to check as your fuel pump drive rod will either be too short (no contact with operating lever) or too long (break the operating lever on impact). Please double check with the image to ensure you are ordering the correct type of fuel pump.
Replacement mechanical pumps can put out 6 psi of fuel pressure or more out of the package. Stacking gaskets, or grinding or
filing down the flat side of the fuel pump drive rod are the standard methods for lowering the fuel pressure. We recommend 3 psi or lower for most carburetor set ups and some carburetors will work best with 1.5 psi.
Fuel Pumps come packed in a light oil that is used for testing and to keep the diaphraghm from drying out. This is not at
all out of the norm. As you should do before connecting any fuel pump to your carburetor, hook up the fuel lines to the pump. Run the
line that goes to the carburetor into a small fuel safe container and crank the engine over until you get a clean, steady supply of fuel.
Then connect the hose to the carburetor and continue on with the installation.
