Question Cafe Racer trim pump took a dump.

Original SSM III's on an 88 Cig Cafe Racer. Old Prestolite trim pump lets the drive tuck in under power and will not hold drive when I have it on the trailer to test it. The starboard drive drops about 1 inch a half hour.

I replaced a ram that was leaking and it is fine. What options do I have other that buying a new Oildyne pump for $700?

Can I replace the valve body on the old pump?

Cool

Hey Surgin,
It really matters which model Prestolite you have. Some
can be repaired.

I'll get the exact model number Tuesday night and post it.

I also heard that I can buy the basic superceding Oildyne pump and up the relief valve using the shopmanual. Have you or anyone tried that ? The generic pump is about half the price of the beefier one.
