If that Hitachi is leaking at the accel pump like ya said, just pull the larger rocker arm off the carb (moves the pump shaft) and pull those two Phillips head screws holding the pump piston assy in the carb.

Before dropping the new one in the pump chamber, coat the rubber/leather cup with oil for a little bit (maybe do this while you're pullin' the old one out) as it helps "swell" the new cup. There is is a gasket normally included under the hold down plate, holds all in the carb, but that's more meant as a dust gasket than a liquid :)

BTW.....while the pump chamber is open, make sure the little ball bearing is down there at the bottom and be certain you orientate the lite spring under the pump assy so that it's tang acts as a hold down for that ball.


Easy Peasey eh? :)
