Default Fuel pump flange broken off

1971 T2 1600

I removed the plastic flange when preparing to fit a new pump and found that the parallel portion is broken off inside the crankcase.

Any suggestions how to remove it would be gratefully received.

I donít suppose it is a good idea to cut down the new flange, leaving the broken piece in place. . . . .?

Cheers,
Roger

You can screw a M8 or M10 tap into the broken part and pull it out.
This will drop some shavings into the case, and should be flushed out.
You are right, it is not a good idea to cut the new one down.

Ben, it worked a treat! The best tap I had was a 3/8 whitworth which threaded in easily. Then I made a simple extractor with a wheel nut, bolt and washer which pulled the broken bit straight out.
Thanks for the idea!
