Hi, so I have a 61 Lark with the OHV 6. It's kind of a barn find but does run but the fuel pump is toast. I've been looking at replacements and they're as much as the rebuild kit if not more. I'd rebuild it but I don't know how to separate the lever from the bottom of the pump and how to separate the 2 middle pieces with the valves.
I'm thinking of putting in an electric fuel pump as a cheap way to try to get it at least running. Any recommendations of what electric pump to use and what you'd do?
Thanks everybody!

I'd contact "Now and Then Automotive" and order a rebuild kit. Comes with detailed instructions, answering all the question about disassembly you just asked. Components of the kit are made for the poor excuse we have for gasoline now. I rebuilt the one on my OHV 6 in the 63 Daytona I had and it was a fairly simple task with excellent results.
