Me either. But it's a mechanical pump. You'd think the diaphragm would be replaceable.

I was looking at the pump and started to take it apart just to see what I can see, so who knows maybe I will. I haven't seen any kits offered, that's why I asked. It looks like it will come apart but who knows how many pieces will go every where when it comes apart!!

Update- changed out the fuel pump and I've been trying to get all the air out of the IP. Seems like I pumped a bucket of fuel thru the primer and still get air bubbles at the spin on filter. Will try some more later this week.

Fixed it

It took 2 days of wrenching and a lot of help from a friend!!! Dropped a new-to-me engine in place, It came with service records etc. So maybe it will last a while (many years I hope!!). There seemed to be a series of unfortunate events with the old engine. We really couldn't figure it out, but after I put a used IP on it and got it to run I noticed that the oil pressure did not raise above 1/2 bar of pressure. I let it sit awhile and idle but no good, even loosened the oil supply to the IP but got nothing. So a new oil pump was going to be 350 or so, I spent a little more than that putting in this engine. So what have I learned? Well, parts is parts and I'm glad I know some good people!! It's good to be back in the saddle of the SD!
