substitute fuel pump damper?
I am bringing back to life a long parked K75. Sure enough, the fuel pump damper turned to goo. I am replacing the ridiculously exhorbitant OEM fuel pump with a reasonably priced pump from the auto parts store. But I also hesitate to blow a wad of cash on a new rubber damper. I have searched here but have not found a replacement. Has anyone found a substitute, or else a way to fab something that will work?
Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism, complete with witch hunts, funny outfits, and solemn preachers thundering doom. The name of God is changed to Safety; the name of Satan is changed to Lawyer; but the object remains the same: to suck all the life out of life and make you live on the husk.
