Add to wish list

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. During restoration, each pump is fitted with custom-crafted superior quality diaphragms that are formulated with nitrile rubber to withstand modern gasoline blended with ethanol. Our pumps are a work of art and as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.

36HP fits 1954 - 1960 VWs
40HP fits 1960 - 1965 VWs
1300/1500 fits 1966 - 1979 VWs

We can also correctly restore any fuel pump, if you'd like to ship yours to our workshop.

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. Don't forget the correct German fuel hose.

Rebuilt Pierburg Fuel Pump

I am very happy with the rebuilt Pierburg fuel pump I purchased from Lane Russell. I was going to rebuild one myself but I was wary of the quality of the rebuild kits and this was not something I wanted to "practice" on this particular car. I feel it was worth the money to have a properly rebuilt and tested unit ready to bolt on with no worries of leakage and/or fire! It helped enhance the period correct engine bay of my 1970 Beetle which previously was running a Brosol pump.

Mark, Thanks so much! I enjoyed answering your questions, as I know it can be confusing when dealing with restored parts. We put a lot of artistry into the pumps and hope it serves your needs for many years.
