I'm fed up my low pressure pump leaking. I've changed the pipes many times thinking it's them but I think it's leaking from the body itself. I can't remember what spec pump I need. Can someone tell me what pump I need and where's the best place to get it from.

I've never seen any 'spec' - there only seems to be one type.

Richard L found his leaked from the outlet pipe. He solved it by putting PTFE tape on the thread - worth a try.

I've tried that. Think it coming from the body itself. There's different psi, most seem to be for carbs, but I'm on jenveys. But coz i've got swirl pot does it matter?

A carb pump is fine, it's only to fill the swirlpot. The actual pressure is built up by your high ptressure pump.

AFAIK the normal cube LP pumps are NPT threaded so will need some sort of instant gasket (careful on contamination) or plumbers tape to seal them.
Can be done though.

Mine leaked at first, enough to dissolve the rubber mounts
