Hi all, I have an old ford 100 with a K241 Kohler 10HP.

 

Would there be a repair kit/gaskets available for the fuel pump as it leaks a bit or do I have to get a new pump?

 

Kohler still starts good, runs good, does not miss and uses very little oil, just need to take care of some of the sweat and leak problems... might need a couple of oil seals here and there too.

 

Posting a couple pics of my tractor and where it seems to be leaking.

 

TIA Cheers! :canada:

Welcome to GTtalk! Glad you decided to join us!

 

I personally like these old pumps and would rather fix them then buy a new plastic one.

 

The thing I found on these is the housing of the pump ( both halves) tend to warp and then you get the leak.

 

There is a company that makes the kits for these here http://www.then-now.com/

Click on the shop button at the top left of the page, now click "shop all", the pump kit is the one on the top left.

 

Sometimes you can take these pumps apart carefully and reuse the diaphragm. 

 

Ones you get it apart check both halves of the pump body with a straight edge, if they are warped you can file and lap them straight again. 

 

Good luck

Hey Chris, I'm right there with ya when it comes to the old stuff... I would rather rebuild than replace.

 

Luckily my Dad was a heavy duty mechanic & some of his expertise had rubbed off so I will take your advice & with utmost care take the pump apart.

 

I will check the upper & lower pump bodies for warpage too & try to get a replacement kit for the old pump.

 

Would be great to get those parts...thx for the link! :thumbs:

 

Bob
