This is the original condition of the fuel pump. The aluminum tri-port housing is an excellent shape and just requires a thorough cleaning. Note the blue paint on the fuel filter canister. For some reason the previous owner painted this blue?

Fuel pump restored using an original Ford Re-manufactured fuel pump. Note the factory ink stampings on the pump housing. The aluminum fuel pump housing was cleaned and mildly polished. I wanted to keep an original bright aluminum finish without the over-polished chrome look.
