I know this is the right pump, since it was running fine, before sitting a while.

Now, runs OK and it leaks a bit but the seals and surfaces look fine - not cracked, pinched or anything.

It would seem that the seals could be replaced for less than $70 to buy everything else as a package (like solenoids that can't be bought without the starter, but that's another issue !)

  The 60 & 61 used a longer "rod", but externally they look the same as the 62-69... the fuel pump must use the correct length rod. Odds are you have the later pump, but it never hurts to measure it.
  Check Clark's web site... they have that info there.

    I've re-assembled mine and it continues to leak from the bottom seal, 
    directly over the engine mount (can't be good for the rubber there ??!?!?)

    No sign of cracks or other aberrations in the seals there though, and all 
    bolts are tight as can be.

    Surfaces seem to be smooth and clean, but still it leaks.

    Are these seals available separately ?  I have most of the parts, can it be 
    rebuilt ?

    Is the Corvair fuel pump the same for all years ?

    Thanks, Charlie
