Default Gas in Crankcase?

I'm pretty sure the diaphram in my fuel pump is shot as i'm getting alot of gas into the engines crankcase.

Has anyone else had this happen?

I'm thinking about switching to an electric fuel pump as I cannot find parts for this one here in Canada... has anyone done this? If so what pump did you use?

I would just replace the mechanical. Less work and less fab.

Problem is I can't locate a mechanical pump for it.

There is one on Ebay in Australia but it'll be $120 CDN... I can get an electric for $60 locally.

check fuel pump AND carb... and change that oil before you do anything else, at least twice.
if carb- fuel going past rings...
the pump sounds bad, but hows the carb?.
I just got a off the shelf Purolator, bolt it to the frame, simple, everyone sells them, pump.
It costs all of $35 us.
A bonus is you can hide the switch for it under the dash...

thanks,
george

Carb was just rebuilt 2 days ago and was tested for 6psi pop off pressure, i pulled the pump apart and found a 1/4" tear in the diaphram which i believe is the cause of my issues. The fuel pump hole appears to go down the back side of the engine as an oil drain down point.

Here in Canada we get ripped off on electric fuel pumps... cheapest one i can find is $60 and thats a low pressure Mr.Gasket unit 1.5-4psi with internal regulator.

I destroyed a G13 engine with this problem.

Here are some helpful links from the Ack's FAQ search engine:

Electric fuel pump and Jeep filter conversion (for dummies edition)

Found using the search string fuel pump.

I had a bad diaphram a few years back and I went to my local Suzi dealer and he just ordered me a new pump from Suzi Toronto.

I tried the local Suzi dealer and they have no listings for this old girl at all other then the spark plugs. You don't by chance know who you dealt with do you?

Some of the bigger North American vendors supply Samurai Parts. Hawk's Strictly Suzuki comes to mind...

888-SAMURAI

I hope that this helps!
