Bought this a few years ago for a project I sold. Comes set up with three way valve (fuel 1, fuel 2, and off) but it will also come with the lock out kit to make it two way (fuel and off). Also includes original manual. $635 plus shipping, looking to get what I have in it.

Not wanting to start a new wobble pump thread, does anyone know if a seal kit is available to rebuild the pump? I have one that I got in with my project but would like to rebuild it before it goes into service.

Mark,
I resealed mine after it had set for 35 years. It's mostly orings. There should be a list of what I used in the thread below.

There are some valves and stuff that would probably have to be sourced from GaryConterno.

He also overhauls these pumps if you want to send it somewhere and know it's done right.

Gary serviced my pump years ago and it came back with a surprising amount of o-rings and seals, hard to believe they are all packed in there.

In today’s CNC world I’m surprised no one is making these again. I have one tucked away for my Fokker Dr1 project.
