The fuel pump drive rod carries the force from the distributor drive pinion to actuate the fuel pump on the Type 1 VW engine. At
approximately 110mm (4.3") long, this rod is known as the "long" style fuel pump rod and is only used with the generator style fuel pump (#113127025D). The generator style pump was standard on 1955 to 1973 Standard Beetle, 1971 to 1973 Super Beetle, 1956 to 1973 Karmann Ghia, 1955 to 1971 Type 2 Bus, 1962 to 1968 Type 3 (Notchback, Squareback, Fastback), and 1973 to 1974 Thing models.
Note - 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.
This fuel pump drive rod should be used with P/N: 113127025D
