I was going to rant, but nobody cares to hear about it, myself included...2mAn wrote: ↑Fri Jun 28, 2019 5:45 pmAlso called Hoopers Rear Ends and were still at a standstill with the rear end. I bought a 4.38 truck pumpkin/ 3rd member and my LSD unit wouldnt fit inside of it, so I suggested using my Roadster pumpkin/ 3rd member that has a bad 3.9 and swapping in the 4.38 gear along with the LSD unit, but he still doesnt feel like it will work... why is this so difficult for me... im a bit furstrated as I was hoping to have the rear end wrapped up so I could focus on the motor once I have my head back.
Hoopers tried to take the 4.38 ring and pinion and install it into the Roadster sourced 3.9 pumpkin/ 3rd member and said that the bearing sizes are different. In other words, the 4.38 and my LSD unit wont fit together in the aluminum pumpkin/ 3rd member from the truck, and they wont fit into the Roadster pumpkin/ 3rd member.
If ANYONE can help shed some light on this I would be very grateful because Im now on month 7 of the Roadster on jackstands and this was supposed to be a ~3 month deal... I miss driving my car

First I'll say I have researched for a while before asking this question. I also fully understand the mechanics to each piece in pump and how they function.
That being said - Can someone here show how to install a new diaphragm in the fuel pump? A video of this would be great. I can remove the old diaphragm but I am having difficulties re-installing it to the lever. Oh and last thing I tried was to remove the pin to remove the lever... does not work. There is a metal ball on each end locking in the pin (even though some instructions say you can remove the pin with a punch - and I have even seen this done on a different style mechanical fuel pump on youtube)
Here are pics for reference on the type of pump and style diaphragm.
