Hopo,

Why do you need a new pump? Has it stopped working? Before changing pumps, check to see if the points in the pump are burnt. Very simple fix with some emory paper or board. Very inexpensive and quick to do. Best part is the fuel pressure and flow is correct for your Esprit. Good luck. I'm still running an original after 34 years.

Hello,

A very good idea. I changed mine last week and its an easy job to do with the tanks empty. I suggest you change the pump to a SU AZX1308. This pump is vented and have dual polarity. Very good preasure. One important thing the couplings will not follow the pump but your local hose dealer has em and the screws to the pump are BSF screws. I used rubber shims between the pump and bracket a huge upgrade soundwise compared to the old. I changed my hoses to 20 and 12 bar hoses. Buy from SU direct or SJ sportscars. Dont forget to change the fuel filter at the same time.
