    Default Diamond T RXC Engine fuel pump.

    Hi there.
    Does any body know how the lift pump operates on a RXC engine, i know there's a rod that
    comes across the block from the camshaft and pushes the operating lever on the fuel pump but
    is there anything on the end of the rod on the pump side.
    Mine doesn't seem to be long enough to push the rocker arm.
    Any help would be most appreciated.
    Thank's
    Mal
    Regards,
    Mal

    Hi Mal

    are you sure the rod isn't missing the arm when you fit the pump? i know from experience it is very easy to do.

    Hi Sam, sorry for the late reply just come back from Scotland (no internet).
    We have tried 6 times and are 99.9% sure it is in line with the rod.
    Can you remember if there is anything on the end of the rod like a shoe, my
    manual doesn't show anything.
    Regards

    Hi Mal

    according to my parts book it states the rod should be 6 3/8" long.

    then there should be a 3/8" follower on the end which goes against the arm on the fuel pump.

    parts B & C



    regards sam

    Thanks Sam, that has answered my question as there is something on the end of the rod (like i thought) i must of knocked it off the first time i tried to put the pump back on (numpty).
    That means the sump has to come off ( bugger).
    Thank you for your help Sam.
    Good luck with your 980 restoration, that is one big project you have taken on i look
    forward to watching your progress.
    Regards
