One of the reasons I recommend using the Carter pumps, honestly. We don't have troubles like that with them, and they come in several "flavors".
FWIW, the Seals-It seals work, too, but are sometimes prone to puncture/tear failures as well.

Hope that helps.

I got on the phone with Pierce. They make fuel pumps. According to the rep I spoke with, they make EVERY ONE OF THOSE fuel pumps. Edelbroc Holley, Barry Grant, ect. He told me that there had been an engeneering flaw in the design which had recently been corrected. I told him what I was running and he suggested I purchase a pump directly from them. I did and altho it does not look like a BG pump it is a terrific piece. Part and shipping was around $45 I think.
You might do a web search for them..I think you want to talk to Vallerie when you get them on the horn....she sounds HOT!
WHY DOES MY MIND ALWAYS GO THERE???

I tried to put one back together for alcohol and couldn't get the diaphragm rod to slide onto the actuating arm. The two springs made it real awkward. Any suggestins on an easier way?

Quite honestly, I do not know. All I can say is that I have never had a Carter pump fail, leak oil, or not hold up for as long as I've ran it.
If I'm not mistaken, they are very popular for upper divisions for that reason (Featherlite mod, Busch North, and more).

Sorry I couldn't offer more info, hopefully someone else might have more of the internal "lo down" on Carter pumps.
