Diesel Fuel filter and Prime Pump assembly

Post by WP_Patrol » 22 Jan 2018 09:05

The button on my diesel filter prime pump broke, I went to Nissan to see if I cant buy the button only but have to buy the complete assembly at a cost of R2300 exl vat.

Masterparts etc dont stock the item, I found a marine prime pump but its an inline hand pump ( looks like the pressure pump on a bp cuff)

If anyone have a substitute part number or supplier for a proper prime/filter assembly it would be great.

Hmmm... I would say try a scrap yard or David Volskenk in Warmbaths... He could courier it down to you.

Ahhhh Marinus... My apologies for not mentioning you in my earlier post bud. It's such an unusual part request that I didn't think you guys do that kind of thing? :redface: :redface:

I broke my lift pump on my 3.0 in Mozambique and in a small village there I found a Toyota one that fitted and it was very cheap. The only difference was the diameter of the pipes were smaller but I had a piece of plastic pipe that made an insert. That was probably in 2011 and I am still using it because the Nissan replacement part was too expensive. Forgot to mention that the 2 top bolts holes had different widths so only used 1 bolt until back in SA.
Have Troll, will travel.
