Should I install a pump and change the throttle rod seals on the injector pump?
the electric lift pump should be on the top forward side of the fuel tank,
It needs replaced if original, I have not seen an FC 300HP without.
no hand pump and the only means of priming the system,.

A fuel/oil in the valley normally means the pump needs to come out.



The unpainted area of the pump on the lower left area of the image is the hard point that secures the pump to the engine block. The area is known to crack and let the pump move around. The large O-ring front of the pump likes to leak, particularly if the two bolts in back of pump are loose or the casting is cracked. Any way you slice it, takes a pile of dead Benji's to fix on it.

Are there tests to do before I remove it?

Not good news. Looks like time to swing the radiator?

Do I repair it or replace it?

Did you read post 20? Find the source of the leak. It could be a fuel line and not the pump. If it is the pump it may only be the shaft seals and they can be replaced with the pump in place and you will not need to swing the radiator. I have had to do this repair as many others have. Some found pump seals while others found bad fuel hoses.

This isn't the kind of work done with a Harbor Freight tool kit by the way. Not at all under the heading of DIY for the casual back yard kind of wrench puller.

Yes, of course I read the post. Based on what Mike knew it sounded like he came to a conclusion so I was following up on that.

I found the pump on front of fuel tank. Looks like the facet cube. I will find out if it's working later today but I will replace it.

Can anyone suggest a source for the Facet 40109 fuel pump? EB products are coming from UK.

So I am asking for help. If that's not possible without a lecture just let me know. Harbor Freight Tools, HAZ! Give me a break.

You may want to re-read (asuming you read it when you joined) the Wanderlodge Owners Group Guidelines , which we strictly adhere to.
