Default Well, I think I’m crying wolf

Looking at the fuel pump picture, the Assembly S/N is NOT on the cover we threw away—its on the base that the cover covers, so I should be able to see the serial number.

When you get the chance to look at the pumps you’ll see both the main and aux pumps carry the same part and S/N as the assembly, leading me to believe the entire assembly is the only way one can get them. I’d be happy if someone could prove that assumption wrong as it will be a more economical solution.

Hope this photo helps a bit for builders that are not sure where the S/N are and what they look like. These are mine before install. Lucky for me my S/N are not in the I'm screwed range.

Default Curious

...if all those connections need to be changed out with the rest of the rubber at 5yr intervals?

This looks like a real dog's breakfast. That's the best Rotax could do?
