    New to the forum just wanted to say hello here and give quick run down. My name is Dan and for the most part I build custom street cars, drag chassis and do restoration work but have recently been building engine mounts for private experimental planes.
    Outside of my interest in WWII aircraft alone I am trying to locate a source for seals for AN 4101 series fuel pumps. I have yet to find any luck on the net so far... The pumps I have are Cherry Burrells but the main regulator diaphram and case seal I believe is interchangable with other pumps in this series.

    Thank you for any leads or insite.

    Welcome to the forum, Shark. You wouldn't happen to have a part number for the seals you need would you?

    Hi Shark;

    What type of "seals" are we talking about? Rubber O Rings? Felt?

    Thank you very much for the welcome. Here is the pump, there are no numbers I could find on the diaphram gasket itself. It is rubber coated canvas that compressed measures .015" I'm not sure if it was a molded gasket or if the internal pump pressure formed it. If this is the case I could just cut it from sheet material. The problem is that what I have found so far is fiber reinforced and lacks the elasticity of the original.

    I'm not sure if it helps but MFR#409-w AN4101 series (G-9) contract W535AC 33207 MFR serial# MC-149552W-A is stamped in the main body tag and the regulator housing has MC-360 cast in it.

    Thanks again
