    1971 Suzuki Fronte 500 aircooled 3 cylinder.

    Hi, I desperately need a rebuild kit or replacement for the Mikuni Kyogo pulse (vacuum) fuel pump for my car. Anybody have any idea which modern pump is interchangeable?

    Thanks

    Hi i have carry vans with two stroke motors that run the same type of pump maybe if you can find one from the two stroke carrys or the lj10 lj20 lj50 two stroke suzuki 4wds.

    Cheers jamie

    Many thanks Jamie, much appreciated! The Carry series were never introduced to South Africa, thus nobody knows anything about them?

    Which make & model of fuel pumps are fitted to your cars engines please? If similar, perhaps you copuld assist in sourcing a rebuild kit In Oz?

    Happy day!

    Hi Jamiec, happy 2013! The vacuum pump as fitted can be replaced by an electrical unit, such as on the Carry.
    We have now stripped the motor & found all the piston rings to be broken. Do you have any contacts for vintage Japanese 2 stroke motor spares?

    Be happy!
