Need rebuild kit for the fuel lift pump on a 450()

Post by Cle Elum John » Wed Oct 17, 2018 11:19 am

Hey
The AC fuel lift pump is leaking an my 1970's vintage 450 dozer. Does anyone know of supplier who sells rebuild kits? Lavoy does not carry them. I have had one offer to rebuild it but no sign of a kit. I would prefer to do it myself considering the extra effort, down time, extra cost and risk of sending it out. It would take more time to package it and mail it out than to rebuild it. Right now it is just a slow drip on the block so there is no hurry.

The JD parts page tries to sell me a complete sealed pump when I put a rebuild kit in the cart. The price is reasonable, but I like the glass dome.

Also, has anyone replaced the mechanical pump with an aftermarket electric pump? It would make priming the system a whole lot easier and I might not find a rebuild kit. Just thinking.

Thanks for any help
