Default Re: Barry Grant 400 -2?

Hey I have a three year old 400-2, that puppy ain't leaking now but it has been sitting with fuel in it for three months almost as updates are done and motor is redone, as i have no leaks right now, should i buy one of the new pumps now, as mine will start leaking after sitting so long, i run mine @ 18 PSI. Cale have you seen this problem or BG Tech? What i am refering too is the new design, might need mine rebuilt etc....

If the pumps are sitting up like that and not being used even though they have fuel in them it is still a good idea to spray a little oil above the seal for start up. If you look between the motor and the bottom housing you will see a small hole there, spray the oil into that area.

Btw.. it wasn't the 400 style pumps that were redesigned , just the flow-through stuff. There is a new seal out for the 400's but as long as the old one isn't leaking no need to change them out.

They are trying to keep the standard pump and regulator repairs at 7 business days or less but right now some stuff has been taking a couple of weeks .

If it goes over 7 business days then the repair is free and there are several on this board that have had theirs sent back n/c because of this as well as just general customers that were not even aware of the policy change.

No problem. If you want to send the Sumo back attention to the tech office I'll see what was going on with it and if we can fix it or get something back to you that you can resell.

That sounds great.. I'll get her boxed up and shipped probably early next week..

Is there a name that I should send it in "attention to" .. I afraid if the guy I talked to on the phone gets his hands on it first.. It will sit on the shelf and collect dust.. Forever..

That reminds me of when I worked for Carter Carburator as a Quality Assurance Technician, many years ago..

If I received one of our aftermarket carbs that a customer had sent back with a complaint.. I would repair that carb to absolute perfection.. Individually flow balancing each barrel.. Putting all specs to their mean specifications.. Hand selecting all the jets, air bleeds, and metering rods.. Making it the best it can be..

Other guys would sometimes let returned carbs sit forever.. Or simply flow test them, and if they were just a lttle out of spec.. Send them back..

Jeff handles all the pumps for me and I'll let him know its coming in.

Typically we try not to let anything collect much dust unless it comes in with no phone number or address....yeah we manage to see 1 of them a week or so.
