Renee, do a search on fuel pumps. I did one last night after reading your post and found that the rebuild kits weren't reliable (according to Pelican) so it was said to find a used one or spend the big bucks for a new one.

Some people have had luck prying the crimped part of the pump open, disassembling it, then taking the O-ring to their local hardware store to find a replacement. I suggest finding an O-ring that will not dissolve in gasoline.

I just had to replace the fuel pump on my 74 1.8L and it was expensive. the 1.8l have the three ports and i guess those run more than the other models. I think mine was $285 or around there and from what i hear that is not a bad price.,,

Personally i am the guy that wants to rebuild rather than spend a fe extra bucks from my ever shrinking budget. But be carefull with the fuel pump. especially because it was leaking out of that electrical connection. I can see that going up in flames. saving money is good but just watch what your doing... good luck
