MG TD TF 1500 - fuel pump rebuild

I thought it would be easy to rebuild the fuel pump but the shop book is hard to follow. At least for me. Setting the points is easy enough but the new diaphragm adjustment is difficult. It says to place the 11 guide rollers in position but I have no guide rollers. Then it says to firmly push in the armature. If the contact breaker "throws over" you have to screw it in farther. What is it talking about?



For the record my pump is not the original. It says it is a genuine replacement and it had to have been purchased before 1974.

To get the very best rebuild send it to Dave DuBois: He's the man.

Rob - Send me a picture of the pump, preferable of the maker's name and I may be able to tell you what you have and if it is really repairable. If it is a SU pump I can send you a procedure that works for today's components (everything is different from the components used when the shop manual was printed. Send the pictures to me at Cheers - Dave
