A big thanks to everyone that purchased our Restored German ’67 Beetle Pierburg Fuel Pumps from the last article. We were sold out! I’m very happy to now be offering the correct German fuel pumps for your ’67 Beetle again. These generally stay in limited stock, but we’re always trying to find viable cores, etc.
Each restored German Pierburg Fuel Pump has been disassembled and inspected for viability. Once it passes this test, it is thoroughly cleaned inside and out. During reassembly, each pump is fitted with custom-crafted superior quality diaphragms. All pumps are assembled on a jig to set the pre-load factory spec conditions of the main diaphragm to ensure a longer service life. The best part, these pumps (by design) put out the correct fuel pressure.
In addition to brand new, custom-crafted superior quality diaphragms, our German Pierburg Fuel Pumps also have the reed suction valve reset, fuel delivery valve, and suction valve retainer installed properly.
Without correction on these three items, a pump will not function as designed. These are important details German engineers put a lot of effort into to ensure your pump delivers fuel to the carburetor.
All pumps are tested before shipment to assure both internal valves are seating, as well as the diaphragm is functioning as designed.
A huge thanks to everyone around that world that supports Lane Russell, LLC.
