After  having a crankcase fill up with gasoline about 20+ years  ago

Hi Timothy,
It won't help much now, but did you know that this is very unlikely to  
happen with a stock-type mech pump. The AC and other stock ones have a built-in  
internal dam to prevent this from happening. Any gas that might hit the  
crankcase is diverted to an outlet ontside the pump.
It's those non-stock aftermarket pumps that did away with the dam which let  
the gas fill the crankcase when a diaphragm ruptures. 
Take all your mech pumps apart and compare them to the pics in the Tech  
Guide for comparison.
