    Hi,

    I'd like to install a electric fuel pump (HARDI German brand) on my Flathead 8BA.
    To get rid of the mechanical pump I have to install a rear breather as I understood.
    Do I keep the fuel pump rod in place or do I have to remove it.
    When I have to remove it. How about oil pressure, as the bushing has a little hole in it to lubricate the fuel pump rod. Can I close the hole? What is the best way. I found no clear instructions on that online or in any book.

    Thanks!
    Cheers

    I think If you keep the fuel pump rod in place you will keep your oil pressure. Without it you will need to plug the hole.

    So I can just turn on my turning machine and press a massiv "bushing" inside.
