hi folks , can the standard bing 54 rebuild kit be bought in europe (like the ones advertised in aircraft spruce or 800 airwolf for about €30 each) i dont want to get the ones in skydrive as there very overpriced, about €100 each. i asked skydrive would they sell a standard kit but they insisted they would only sell the expensive kit with floats etc. its a bit of a pain havin to get a simple kit sent all the way from the west coast of the usa. any advice would be great,thanks, pat.

Pat, I recently bought a fuel pump for a 582 from the states; I priced it with Skydrive (£145 +postage) so I bought it from the US. It arrived about 10 days after ordering and I had a brand new genuine fuel pump for less than €60 delivered. I find those numbers hard to argue with!

I've used California Power Systems and Aircraft Spruce regularly.
Great speedy service. Order the bits and they will arrive sooner than you think.

In the past I have purchased from both of these" onclick=";return false;" onclick=";return false;

The JBM Industries products are superior to OEM supplied materials, and the fuel pump is OEM
Also available are overhaul gasket kits at seven dollars Canadian," onclick=";return false;

JBM also supply carb mount rubbers for rotax engines which again are superior quality to OEM supplied parts and Cheaper!

Hi John,

I would read the following article before buying anything other than a Genuine Rotax UL Fuel Pump. the Drain hole on the brass elbow is vital. I had a lucky escape, in that the problem was found on the ground during a run up. The pump that was fitted was a non-UL type was fitted. It did not have a brass elbow with the drain hole on the impulse line to the pump. fluid drained to the pump and the hydraulic pressure ruptured the diaphragm. The diaphragm also was not the clear type found in the UL type pumps, but a fabric type which had been coated in resin. As a result of the rupture the engine ran very rough and would not develop full power.

I have seen articles where people have bought the snowmobile pump, drilled a 1/64" hole in the impulse line elbow and changed the gaskets and diaphragm to the UL type. Personally I would purchase the UL type pump in the US, but be sure it is the UL type you are buying (with the drain hole and clear diaphragm). The article below is very detailed in its explanation of the pumps.

I have also bought the bing kits from the Aircraft Spruce, but I was nabbed by customs and had to pay duty, even so, they were cheaper than Skydrive. ... t%2053.PDF" onclick=";return false;

Hi Mick
you are correct in what you say regarding the non vented pumps, However all pumps maunfactured by mikuni now have that pulse line vent as standard and can even be seen in the image in the first link. I guess the guys on snowmobiles need realiability too.
