Only way for fuel to get there is a ruptured Diaphragm…  not “Gasket”  Yes it will re-appear…and causes fire easily with distributor / Coil nearby…  Surprised after all these decades you didn’t know this!   Shows the “reliability” of most pumps!!

What would make the stock mechanical fuel pump squirts from top?
Mine just started squirting fuel out of the hole on top of the pump.
I disassembled it, to find the gaskets were all near perfect.

 I re-assembled it and it's fine (for now?) How did the fuel get up there?

Thanks for any insights to see if it just "healed" will it come back?!?!
