Weber 40 idf issues

I just got back from my mechanic who said my accel pumps were leaking. When I got my kit from Perfomance Products, these were first omitted, and then they were sent, but one of them was sort of delaminating, therefore it leaked the first time it was installed.
I reinstalled in VERY carefully and it stopped leaking. The mechanic discovered later that it was leaking again. Anyone else seen this with these pumps? The mechanic also said that the springs for these looked kind of corroded ( PO battery leak). Could this problem with the accel pumps be the cause of about 40% fuel efficiencey loss? I'm now waiting for new pumps and springs.

Thats a big problem with mine too. Real PITA. my check valves were not checking either. Kinda makes the accel jet dribble.
When you rebuild Cleanliness is oh so important.
