We are on our way to the Bahamas
, currently in Titusville FL. Noticed today that we have a slight drip from the fuel injector pump
right at the seam where the top of the pump (where the throttle assembly connects) meets the rest of the body. Ours is a 1982 Morgan
416 OI, with the CAV D.P.A injector pump
. Anyone had this problem before? It is dripping at a rate of about one drop per 15 minutes, so it wets a paper towel bunched up under the unit after a while. I haven't noticed this before, so who knows if it has been doing it for a while, or is the result of wear and tear as we have moved South.
Is this something i should get fixed now or when I return? Does it get worse if left untreated? My feeling is to get it done Stateside, before going to the Bahamas
. But if so, who to do the work? Do I simply replace the seal, or get the whole thing rehabed. Is replacing the seal something that a person with reasonable but limited mechanical skills should attempt? The alternative is to yank the entire assembly and send it off for repair. Any suggestions, recommendations - particularly in Florida
, will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. George - Papagayo.
