Flange Gaskets for Lift Pumps
Flange gaskets do not normally need to be replaced unless a leak is present or the pump is removed.
Flange gaskets are currently manufactured from paper whereas previously they were made from Compressed asbestos fibre (CAF) which is harmful to health and has therefore not been used for a number of years.
A failed gasket or O-ring can often be the culprit when it comes to persistent fuel leaks, resulting in puddles of diesel fuel under the engine after it has been running for a while.
Fuel leaks can be extremely dangerous as well as expensive and damaging to the environment. An unnoticed build-up of leaked diesel fuel can be hazardous to people in a number of ways; fire and explosion risk, slippage and potential contamination of drinking water.
When you are rebuilding the lift pump on your engine we always recommend that you replace all of the gaskets (flange gaskets) and O-rings to prevent fuel leaks.
We stock all of the required seals for lift pump engines including 2, 3 and 4 hole fixings which fit between the engine and the lift pump.If you should need any kind of flange Gasket or O-ring for your lift pump assembly that is not listed on our parts database will be happy to search for and source that part for you, so just call our sales and technical team, who will always be happy to help you.
