1486 fuel shut off plunger

Recommended Posts

Might as well get the whole pump rebuilt while you're doing it.

Are you talking the fuel control that goes in the side of the head ? , if it’s all varnished up you should maybe pull the pump and have it gone through .

If we seem confused. It's because there is no fuel shut off plunger on the oem pump. Clarification needed.

The fuel control "mechanism" is behind the small cover on the main forward body just under the fuel inlet elbow. 4 screws. They have been known to stick from getting gummed up, and sometimes some good strategic application of penetrating oil and some careful persuasion with some pliers will work them loose. Sometimes it only needs done once, sometimes it will gum up and stick again in short time.  That's what is being discussed.

Combine engine? 

Had that thought. Thats why I said oem pump. If it is indeed the control unit he is concerned with. The question has already been answered.
