Default Fuel leak

I have just bought my first samurai which had been sitting for some time, when I got it home I got it running but noticed a bad fuel leak from the mechanical fuel pump, I had a quick look but couldn't see anyway of seperating the pump to see if there was meant to be a gasket in there.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Default Leaking Fuel Pump

The mechanical fuel pumps are non repairable, it's the principle of repair by replacement. I had the same problem on my 1985 Sierra and the fuel was leaking out from the middle section of the pump where the two halves are pressed together. I wouldn't trust a second hand pump as you might end up with the same problem.

Replacing the pump is a quick job taking about thirty minutes. Before removing the old pump make sure you stick some rags under and around the area where the pump mounts onto the head. If you don't do this you will end up with oil all over everything once you separate the pump from the head.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, this helps alot, my pump is leaking from exactly the same place (between the 2 halves).
I will price a new pump today and hopefully I will be back in action by the weekend.
Thanks again for your help

Glad I was able to help you out. I bought my Sierra new in 1985 and it's still going strong. There's not much I don't know about pre EFI Sierras. I rebuilt the original motor after it had travelled 400k kilometres and that was still on the original clutch too. After the rebuild I had to modify my driving as the Suzi would always go over the speed limit.
