In racing, centrifugal force throws hot oil into the fuel-pump housing, resulting in increased heat transfer to fuel and oil leaks. Working in conjunction with Robert Yates Racing, Seals-it solved the problem using a molded neoprene seal bonded to an alloy plate to seal around the pump arm.
An insulating gasket and sleeved, insulated bolts also cut down on the engine heat transferred to the pump, further reducing fuel temperatures.
Designed for Robert Yates Belt Drive systems, the kit keeps hot engine oil from entering the fuel pump cavity on Ford, GM, and MOPAR applications.
