Got mine at www.Macsautoparts.com.
Search is tedious, you may want to call.

Try Then and Now Auto in Massachussets. They carry lots of parts for older fuel pumps and carbs.

I am not a great fan of ACBS, although I joined it many moons ago.....but in saying this,- Dick Werner from ACBS is looking to hold physical symposiums around the country to inform ACBS as to boat restoration.

We have many VERY knowlegeable people on the list. I suggest whether we are boat owners, restorers or just love boats, that a web conferencing medium focused on boat information be established.

Jim's shop pic is the best posted in a long time.

I know I am getting really old because I can identify every part in the pix and it took me 5 mins to study the entire frame! Neat stuff!
