I can’t seem to find anywhere that sells rebuild kits for the original fuel pump. When I see them listed I look farther and it is for the 394 big car engines. Anyone know where to get a kit for an original pump?
I got a kit a few years ago for my ’63 Cutlass that was made from materials that are compatible with the crappy fuel we get these days. I can’t find the receipt but I think it might be this supplier I found on the net. Here is a link. Check with him to see if he has anything for your ’62 Jetfire. http://www.classicpreservation.com/fuelpumpkits.html
I put an N.O.S. fuel pump on it shortly before that and it failed after about 200 miles. The rubber had deteriorated and the diaphram was torn when I took it apart. Rebuilding with new parts is the best way to go.
