OK...   Correction...  The earlier pumps have a LONGER push rod than the 
later ones.

I've also found that with the older "rubber?" material, they can leak after 
being allowed to dry out.  This is commonly attributed to the newer gasoline 
formulations.  The new pumps being sold now should not exhibit that anomaly.

Later, JR
