Bought a new fuel pump for the Ford 2000 3cyl 3-4 months ago. Bought it from the local ford dealer, came in a ford marked box with a ford part number. Fast forward to today and the darned pump is leaking from the top of the unit. Took the screw off (metric) and the gasket they used had stretched out due to gasoline - cheap plastic gasket. Took old pump out and it had a proper fiber based gasket. I bought genuine ford parts in hope that they still had quality parts - nope - same cheap aftermarket parts, just more expensive.
end of rant...

BTW the local Napa had some very good black gasket material that was rated for fuels. Bought a roll of it for $5 bucks. Will last me a lifetime, or what's left of it. Excellent stuff.

I am sure that is part of it. I try to run 100% gas in the tractor but occasionally 10% eth gas gets used.

One of my pet peeves

You pay more for a part thinking you'll get a better quality part, but you might just be getting the same part in a more expensive box.

You just don't know anymore.

Most parts come from the far east nowadays. Ford left the tractor business in 1994 so today there is no such thing as a Ford Tractor dealer and no such thing as genuine Ford Tractor parts.

Maybe should be expensive cheap parts. Know what you are saying, just something we have to deal with keeping these old tractors working.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
