Re: Fuel pump oil leak.
If it is the bottom "weep holes" that you are referring to, the only
way for oil to get in there to leak out is if the rubber, fuel pump
push rod seal is damaged or missing. (this piece is included in our
fuel pump repair kit)
I'm not following some of your description, but anything that pertains
to the tower shaft, brass elbow and camshaft are not causing your fuel
pump to leak oil.
Give me a call, I've rebuilt a lot of fuel pumps and I can better
explain what to look for.
