    Those are the inlet and outlet valves. What do you think happened to the "blown out" valve? Was it melted by fuel?
    One of several sites that shows how to rebuild these pumps is: https://www.428cobrajet.org/how-to-fuel-pump . This is a Ford high performance pump with three valves, but it's very similar to other Carter pumps.

            Hi Brooker, you say its working well; assuming it is a Carter R2 pump (? mine is still all together, I'm researching before tearing it apart), what rebuild kit did you use? I have been going through posts (should have noted DATES!), and recall comments of the Stude vendors kits not fitting well or leaking oil, etc.. and the Ford "X" pump kits being better (I also looked through that Ford "X" pump rebuild site, good info!). Thanks for the info, Brooker or anyone else, as to what the situation is like now. I've had my kit for a while, and know it say it has a Viton diaphragm and has rivets in it, but not sure that it said WHO MADE it or anything in the one page of instructions.... Since I'm doing a 57 Golden Hawk but adding the R2 pump for a return fuel line (had enough vapor lock to last a lifetime with our '53 Buick Super V8 convertible in parades and such since I was a kid to this day, I don't have a manual that covers the R2, depending on Forum posts. Thanks again.

              Brooker's Carter Fuel Pump is a Standard V8 smaller one than a R1/R2 Carter Super Pump, these are closest to Chrysler not Ford.
