Rebuilt the fuel pump on my 75' as per instructions but using the diaphragm from Marxparts. Pretty straight forward, done with simple hand tools. Pump puts out a good puff of air. Wont be able to fire it up for a few weeks though....love this forum !

This is such a good forum for GL1000's. Just got mine going after 27 years stored and rode it today for the first time in all that time. She's still got heaps of grunt. The fuel pump needed renewal so got a second hand one here in Oz luckily and it works well but will be repairing the old one when I find some diaphram material. They must sell it in rolls somewhere.... action1

page before from Sidecarbob,

Almost 2 years and the Marxparts diaphragm is still OK.

If you need one they are on this page http://www.marxparts.com/repro%20chevy_fuel.htm (last item at the bottom - still $6)

Whatever I suggest here should be given ample time for a moderator to delicately correct. I apologize in advance.

well..I think I'm in this leaking boat too. lol
tried to start the bike after installing the exhaust and I couldn't get it to start. After attempting for about 15 minutes I pulled a plug and..dry as a bone.
I'm going to pull the fuel line off to the carb to confirm my suspicion but I ordered 2 diaphragms anyway.

Update: 8 years later my rebuilt pump is still working perfectly. I am in the process of replacing the engine and I have removed the rebuilt pump for installation on the new engine.

Thanks. I'd pretty much decided to go electric if the parts bike pump didn't work, but it's great to have options.

I have a 1100 pump on my '78 - fit fine. I looked into rebuilding the 1000 pump (I still have it), but the phenolic valves appear to be breaking down and leaking. Is there a replacement source for those?
