Anyone had trouble fitting a QH fuel pump on a Sprint?

Seems to be a tricky blighter - played around for 10 mins but left it as getting annoyed.

Is there supposed to be a spacer at all ?

Let me know

It measures 60mm from end of body to tip of lever (max length)

Part number is QFP33

Yes, that model requires a spacer; you'll find two gaskets in the box, one for each side of the spacer (but no spacer!)

A non spacer armed pump is just shy of 50 mm.

Thanks - that answers the question.

Seen some on eBay - mainly for Mini but are these the same?

Ridiculous they don’t supply spacer

When I replaced my fuel pump some years ago I did a drawing of it and the Long Arm replacement ( Attatched )
If you print the graph paper out full size ( the squares are 1cm x 1cm ) and place the edge of the fuel pump on the left hand side you can check whether it is an early or a late version. Fig 1 is the early one. Fig 2 is the late one and Fig 3 is the late one fitted with the UKC 8523 plastic spacer.
HTH,
Tony.

I think they expect you to re-use your existing spacer.
Bit tricky if you are replacing a short armed one without the spacer!
