I recently changed the fuel filter on my 63 Champ 299 4V,due to bad fuel flow.then it hit Me,wow it's been 2 years that I did the engine swap.and at that time I installed a n.o.s. carter fuel pump,and it is working just fine being of origional material.Dave T told Me to use it as Carter used good inners,well so far so good <G> "so ya it's still ticking"

Several of mine have lasted between 20 and 30 years before rupturing the Diaphragm and leaking fuel, even with the last 10 to 15 years being run on 10% Ethanol.

But eventually you will need to install the Alcohol resistant Rubber Parts Rebuild Kit, probably sooner is better, mine have leaked externally, but they can leak INTERNALLY, not good.
