Lucas pump cap
#1
Hi all,

Just curious - is it possible to buy replacement caps - the one that you remove to adjust the max fuel - for the lucas diesel pumps? I have taken mine off and got it back on and sealing, but it worries me a bit that I could crack it (there are wee chips out it where I had to chisel it round). Would be nice to have a spare to hand!

I have seen mention of old ford pumps having a metal cap on them, but searching ebay etc doesnt' turn up any.

Alternatively, has anyone worked out the dimensions /  thread and managed to source a suitable equivalent ?

Cheers
Craig

Yeah loads of places supply the plastic ones. Google search for Lucas DPC Sealing/Access Plug or something along those lines.

Plastic ones are fine, the key is to not overtighten em Smile

You can get metal ones, someone on Facebook showed me last year but I can't find the post (typical facebook, forums are way better for searching) I can't seem to find any after a quick google search but I know they are out there.
A moments silence please, for our brothers in the NAD-zone.

Yeah that looks right, no idea why it's green though!

Thread necromancy, anybody had any joy finding a better source of these plugs or the metal ones? Tenner for a bit of plastic/nylon seems a bit excessive but then again guess they count on it being a distress purchase lol. Thank fook we have another 306 to get us around... (Well, that's waiting for a water pump but given the choice I'd rather drive round pissing water than diesel)!
