    I seem to recall that some one here had broken the red plastic elbow fitting coming out of the bottom of the fuel tank on either a Norge or Griso and had found a suitable replacement for it. Does any one remember that post or am I finally getting senile ? I have a parted out good pump but the dufus tearing it apart just cut the red fitting after the gray pullback one. It would make life easier if I could replace it now before I need the pump rather then swapping out the pump parts now instead of when and hopefully never the need arises.

    No you're not going senile, I remember that post to, but for the life of me, can't find it.
    I'm sure whoever it was, ended up fitting a metal right angle instead of the horrible red plastic thing, but can't remember the details, sorry.

    I don't remember that post but at our shop we have tried many times to salvage the fittings from dead pumps. Success rate is very low, maybe one in three. They are designed to be non-removable.

    Dan, there is/was a post that someone installed a brass elbow with good success, outside of loosing the "no drain" option when disconnecting. Did you break yours or ?

    No, I did not break it. I won a fuel pump on E-Bay from a parted out Norge (and many other parts), The Dofus who pulled the pump just cut the red elbow off. So if I ever need a pump I would either come up with a new connector or just reuse my old plate and transfer the pump parts to it.

    It sounds like its the post I put on the old board last year.

    I broke the so called quick release conector on my Breva while removing the tank for a routine service, the photos show the replacement parts.
    The brass elbow came out of the ‘odds and sods box’ of my local auto parts supplier, I think it was originally intended for use on the braking system of a large truck. I had to drill the remains of the old plastic elbow out of the hole and tap it for the new elbow, I don’t recall the sizes though.
    The blue fuel line connector was given to me by a mate who’s an engineer dealing with light aircraft.
    I’ve no longer got a none-return valve in the system so I tend to put a hose clip on the line before undoing the blue connector, once its undone I have an end cap which screws on to seal the line.

    Unfortunately I can’t suggest where you could get these components apart from doing as I did and taking the old plastic elbow to a parts supplier to see if they have anything you can work with.

    Give Tom Newell (Don Newell Motorcycles, Deshon Street, Brisbane [google him]) a ring /em. He has some brass elbows for sale and should be able to help out.
    Can't remember whether the ones he showed me were for the Norge or VII Lemans

    Was that really almost 7 years ago, how time flies. Yes you can now buy the replacement part.
