    Has anyone ever rebuilt a Carter fuel pump? I pulled mine and found some play in the shaft. So I was thinking of rebuilding it, but I've never even seen a kit for it. Thanks.

    Better check the cost of a new pump against a kit. I haven't seen a rebuild kit in uears.

    About $20 for a new one at your local parts store.

    I think that explains why kits may not be readily available: rebuilding the old pump is hardly cost-effective.

    It's not a stock pump though. It's an aftermarket street pump that I can take apart.

    sounds like your spring has weakened causing the play. NOt sure about a kit for those, though.
