This seems like a good source for Nitrile... not too expensive either: 3x5ft for $20? 1/16 thickness...

was just thinking friendz... 'bout something that could be used that already uses fuel resistant material... what about material from some safety gloves, surely there are thick rubber gloves out there that are made specifically to resist fuel no? What do you think...

That sounds good but I wonder how it would stand up to the constant high speed reversions in a pump without having the reinforcing web.

Likewise with the glove material, which may be too thin anyway.

Good bit of lateral thinking there though tumb2 tumb2

Sidecar Bob,id like to here if your over the pond friend has access to fuel pump kits for sure. Thanks.,,BTW, I rec a couple pieces of that nitrile from peteybug and Im going to try to use some contact cement to hold it to a aluminum surface and then see if i can Mill it down with a 4 flute endmill to about the thickness of the factory one,sure wish I had a new factory one to go by though. If the contact cement will adhere tight it darn sure will mill off.

Don't use the safty gloves I already tried and don't know why but didn't stand up. We have some real costly ones at work and tried them kinda shrivled up for some reason.
love new ideas for old wing's. AS I have three and am always working on them

I've noticed a lot of different brands of 'nitrile' gloves shrivel after a few minutes. I don't think they're purely nitrile. or they're too thin to keep them comfortably flexible.

I have an old pair of chemical gloves that I can't/won't part with. those would definitely withstand the fuel. they're still here after many a soaking in JP-6, JP-8 and some FSII and that stuff is HIGHLY corrosive. wish I knew what they're made out of...

Pete I got the new peices but have not had time to work with them yet. They sure look like the same thickness though?

There close just a little thicker. Have one on my bike now. Developed a problem> Don't think its from that. Think its card related. Just broke down and ordered a Randakks kit. Cant wait to get it should have done it a long time ago fly into a rage will get it at end of week cause he's takin a well deserved vacation. If it works out I'll be ordering two more shortly. :-D

The site is working again,GREAT. Petybug,I believe I can use some contact cement and glue down the nitrile rubber to a aluminum block and mill it down to the correct thickness if i knew what the correct thickness is and if anyone is sure Nitrile is the right stuff to use for the diaphram? LMK. thanks.

I used some black gasket maker stuff on the leaky pump diaphragm, seems to have stopped the leakage through the air outlet hole but I'm still not getting enough fuel into the system...

so...

Just ordered some nitrile... should be in in a couple of days. The thinnest stuff they had was 1/16" - hope that thickness works. Will post results... if that fails I'm going to Randakk the biatch!

I hope it will stay like this for xx kkm ;)
