I've found it's a good idea to check the bowl hold down band for tightness after you run it. The gasket under the bowl will take a set, but can leak air past it without showing a fuel leak. It can throw off your whole game, even quit while going down the road because you run out of fuel and don't know why. Ask me how I know!

Speaking of fuel pumps...I've got a take off original in a box. Where can a quality kit be purchased these days? I know Deballa has a good carb kit. Does he or someone else have the fuel pump refurb kit?
Moosey, if your flow checks are not corroded, you can use a new aftermarket diaphram out of the currently available pumps. I took my "new" flat topped pump apart and put the diaphram and seal right into my 1944 lever pump from AC.
I imagine you attempted to find a pump from that period and, not immediately finding one to your liking, you decided to go repro. That’s fine. I can’t find fault with a man who does the best he can with what is available to him. As well, it is YOUR Jeep. I wish you many years of unblemished performance from it. Pete, and for that matter RFJP, both do everything they can to find American-made, high quality parts for their customers. While they can’t find everything here, they do have your back when you purchase from them. However, should you decide again you want to go original issue, come see me.

Thanks! I'll remember that. Couldn't find one for a decent price or they would get swooped up before I had a chance. Sadly never ran across this site or knew you had them prior to purchasing this new one. If I decide to make the switch, I'll let you know.
During my road trip I will bring you cores of anything you can use to rebuild, Rick. I only say this because I have to remind myself to get all the identifying numbers off the bits i Have in the garage still
m38mike: Oilly, I agree. I wish someone would put a ride together. Until then I may have to Jeep alone. Cuppa Joe please.
