I just got my fuel pump rebuild kit from BPNW. How do I replace what I think are two valves, about 3/4" in diameter? is this something a machine shop has to do?

I don't know how to paste a link for a previous thread but if you search the Triumph Forum for "fuel pump?" you will find a post from 69TR that provides a lot of detail on these rebuilds. Include the quotations in your advanced search under the search function at top right of window.

Good luck - I'll be doing this in a few weeks.

Can anyone tell me how to paste a link from a previous thread?

You can do it Kevin.
Use a small file or dremel tool to grind away (carefully) the crimp that holds the one-way valve in place.
Make note as to how they are installed to insure the correct replacement. Once the new one is in place, you can use a punch to make a crimp to hold it in.
That's how I did mine... others may have better advice.

Did you look at 19.45 in the Bentley manual?

I haven't heard about BPNW's repair kits.
The others have had problems

Pretty much the same way you paste a link from anywhere ... open the page you want to link to, click on the URL line, press Ctl-C (for copy). Now navigate over to where you want to post, and press Ctl-V (for vomit).

Not sure, maybe this is the thread you were thinking of?

BTW, the original TR3 pumps (and TR4 as well, I think) had a clamp to hold the valves in place. They are much easier to get apart, just remove the screw & clamp, then rap the body on the bench to dislodge the valves. But last time around, I just left the valves alone. The real problem was the diaphragm (originals and replacements up to a few years ago do <span style="font-weight: bold">NOT </span>like ethanol or MTBE).

Thanks Randall

Like my TR3 rebuild, I make the simple things difficult. Appreciate the computer user lesson. Embarrassing, actually.

Thanks for the help everyone. By the way, how would you know if the two one way valves are good or not? Randall, some of my students have trouble remembering control c and control V when copying and pasting. They won't forget after I use your example - thanks.

I used lung power to test mine: alternately blow and suck. If it stops air, it will surely stop gasoline. And they don't have to be perfect, the pump will still work fine even if they leak a bit.

If you find a good one for Ctl-X, let me know K?

Ctl-X does a "cut" operation. It moves the highlighted text (or object) from where it is, to the clipboard.

Windoze also understands Ctl-C,X,V; it's part of the standard dialog that almost every program uses.

I would guess the UNIX descendants use something else, so I should have qualified. I haven't touched UNIX since before DOS came out ... still got a CPM machine in the attic somewhere.

But the punched cards from the IBM 1130 got lost in a move :laugh:

Ctl-X for extract. Or hold up a pair of scissors and show how the open scissors look like an X. Just like scissors, Ctl-X cuts the words out of the document.

And Ctl-V for Voila, there it is again! :laugh:

If you have it assembled and pump the lever up and down, you will feel suction on the inlet and the expelling of air on the outlet side.
