K Series Fuel pump.

Hi,

I am just renewing the fuel tank on a 1997 K series. The electrical connections on the outside of the pump are in a circular compartment. This compartment does not seem to have a cap, but is filled with some kind of non conductive material. Time has taken a toll on this material and it is falling out. Does anyone know what this material is so I can replace it?

Many thanks

David

This is not my fuel pump, its supposed to look like this, as you can see where the cable goes in its filled with some type of gel.

Not sure what it is, but looks like silicon and that's what I'd try. Let's see if someone with better knowledgd can help.

It’s an epoxy I believe. When I replaced my pump, I also repaired a spot of damage on the wiring in this area,. I picked out the original brown plastic / resin material with a small flat headed screwdriver, and back filled it with a lump of premixed Araldite. Obviously you don’t want want to do this when the pump / tank is on the car, as it will all run out!
