The Bakelite mounting block that sits between the fuel pump and crankcase on my 1800 has a crack in it and it therefore leaking oil. The pump is stuffed and obsolete. I can not seem to find a new block anywhere but was thinking of removing the pump rod and just mounting the pump hard up against the case to stop the leak. Anybody see any problems with this solution? Or better still, anybody know where I can get a block?
