    Fuel Pump Body Repair or Replacement.

    Due to what I imagine was contaminated fuel while under previous ownership, my fuel pump body has a small hole in it. I have repaired it with JB Weld for the time being, but am concerned about the long-term durabillity the repair submerged in gasoline.

    My welder says no can do.

    I would like to try replacing just the outer shell of the pump. It would appear that the crimps around the top can be un-crimped and my low-mileage good internals put inside another can. My dealer says the can is not available.

    Does anyone know of a supplier for a new can or a source for a failed pump with a good can?

    I've used the Permatex gas tank repair on my lawn mower and it works...

    Try a want ad on http://www.ibmwr.org/market/ or bmwmoa. There must be
    hundreds of failed pumps people have stashed in their garages.

    This may be of interest... http://www.ibmwr.org/ktech/fuel-pump-install.shtml

    I would replace rather than repair. That NAPA pump at < $70 looks tempting.
    Having no idea about this replacement because I have never done it. All that can be offered is the link.
