Restored German Pierburg dome top fuel pumps Price: 145.00
These Dome top fuel pumps have been professionally rebuilt and restored. New and correct OEM quality rebuild kits with Effbe diaphragms are installed. All the hard steel parts are inspected for wear. If they pass, they are stripped of their old zinc plating. They are then re bright zinc plated for the like delivered new appearance and corrosion protection. All the mating surfaces are leveled on a milling machine to ensure perfect sealing surfaces. The lower diaphragm assemblies are pre-loaded to spec during assembly. The outlet brass tube are checked for tightness in the aluminum body. If they are loose, they are removed and then pressed back in with a retaining compound. The tube won't come out again.
These rebuilt German Pierburg fuel pumps are basically like new now and will last for decades if the engine is run regularly.
This style German Pierburg dome top fuel pumps were originally installed from 1962 through 1971 on buses. They were installed on bugs from 1962 through 1965.
These are excellent fuel pumps and are correct for our VW's. The are vastly superior to anything new sold today. They put out the correct 3 PSI fuel pressure. They have internal fuel filter screens. The rocker pins are secured with "C" clips so they don't back out like many of the new fuel pumps sold today.
The big issue with many of the new fuel pumps sold today is the wild variance in fuel pressure they can put out. Everyone who bolts a fuel pump on their engine should check the fuel pressure. Many new fuel pumps put out 6 psi or more. This creates all sorts of issues with the carb/carbs.
These fuel pumps can last for decades as well with these OEM quality rebuild kits with Effbe diaphragms. They also make our VW engines look factory correct in appearance.
