I have purchased a new electronic SU Fuel Pump to replace the old pump which rather spectacularly failed on my 3.4L MKII. A boot full of fuel and no fire was the miracle. There are some minor physical differences on the black cast section of the pump to my original. As can be seen in the photo it has two pipes which look as though they ought to have rubber pipes fitted to them. What purpose do they serve and do I need to fit rubber pipes to them as the pump is in the boot away from dirt and grime?
Cheers and best wishes,
