Zagato fuel pump mounts, available? anyone?

Postby Zagatolove » Mon Jun 09, 2008 6:10 pm

Does anyone know where you can buy the rubber fuel pump mounting blocks with the studs out each end for the 82 Zagato? Mine ripped today and i cant seem to find anyone that still carries them.

Thanks

Sometimes it is necessary to fabricate things you can't buy for these cars.Maybe a piece of 1/4" fuel hose with the mounting stud inserted through the hose?

Thats not a good idea as the stud would transfer all the vibration of the pump to the chassis which would make it sound VERY loud while operating. The rubber mounts isolate the studs from the chassis by way of the the rubber center piece so the vibration doesnt get to the metal frame. Ill keep looking for the right mounts to do it correctly..

Thanks for your idea though.

Isolated mounts are common to fuel injected vehicles of the era. You may find an acceptable replacment that fits another vehicle. 8)

I have a Holley red fuel pump pounding away under my Beta,doesn't bother me.But you might be able to pour you own mounts and insert the studs in the compound to isolate the vibration.This web site has various urethane,rubber,and plastic compounds that may do the trick,you just have to decide which is best to make your mounts.
