Hard to believe there is not a discussion thread about the breakdown of the different eras of 25- and 36bhp fuel pumps, modifications made and eras used in the Oval FAQ area. Anyone know for a link to the various eras and modifications to these pumps?

You are right - I could not find a detailed thread. I made one.

25hp / 36hp fuel pumps

Please add to it with any additional information you may have.
