1300/1600 - German Pierburg Fuel Pump

This is a properly restored genuine 1300/1600 German Pierburg Fuel Pump.

Each restored German Pierburg Fuel Pump is first disassembled and inspected for viability in our workshop. Once it passes this test, it is thoroughly cleaned inside and out and resurfaced. All hardware is zinc plated, and inlet tubes are always removed and reseated. Each pump is fitted with brand new, custom-crafted superior quality diaphragms, (Effbe, which is the OEM supplier to VW) that are formulated with nitrile rubber to withstand modern gasoline blended with ethanol.

Other product recommendations
We offer a German fuel line install kit that has the required components to properly install your restored fuel pump. 

  • 5 (screw style) fuel hose clamps
  • 1 in line fuel filter
  • Select between 3, 6, or 10 feet of German Cloth Braided Fuel Hose

Internal German Pierburg Fuel Pump function & Design
In addition to brand new, custom-crafted superior quality diaphragms, our German Pierburg Fuel Pumps also have the reed suction valve reset, fuel delivery valve, and suction valve retainer installed properly.

Without correction on these three items, a pump will not function as designed. These are important details German engineers put a lot of effort into to ensure your pump delivers fuel to the carburetor.

Which pump is period correct for my Vintage VW?
25HP - 1952 - 1953 VWs
36HP - 1953 - 1960 VWs
40HP - 1960 - 1965 VWs
1300/1600 - 1966 - 1979 VWs

Once restored, are pumps tested?
All pumps are tested before shipment to assure both internal valves are seating, as well as the diaphragm is functioning as designed.

About fuel pressure
Original factory manuals specify a fuel pressure of approximately 1.30 to 1.87 pounds per square inch (psi) for 25hp and 36hp pumps through 1958. After this time, pressure specifications were increased to a maximum of approximately 2.5psi. This pressure rating was retained through 36hp engine production and continued on 40hp and the later 1300/1500 engines.

Although the preload on the diaphragms is designed to set the fuel pressure within the specified range, we recommend you check the pressure with a gauge after you install the pump in your engine.  If you find the pressure too great, you can reduce it by adding another gasket between the pump and base or between the pump base and case.

Excellent customer service.

Fuel pump was shipped instantly and I was sent tracking information. USPS dropped the ball, shocker, but Eric was a bull dog dealing with them. He contacted me daily. I never had to look for him. Eric was more upset with situation than I was. Fuel pump arrived, well packed and in perfect condition. Couldn't be happier with it and I love his 67only web site.

My recent inquiry into a pump turned into a purchase because of how well Eric helped me. His response time to everything asked of me was great. Even on the day the part was delivered, he answered a question I had before I could open the door to the garage! Thank you Eric for your quality support and product.

I appreciate the fast delivery of my new fuel pump. It hasn't been installed on the engine yet, as I have been focusing on putting the body back together. The fenders are going on this week. Still waiting on the deck lid and doors to come from the paint shop.
