    Glued it up with epoxy but not sure how much i trust it, don't want a fuel leak but don't really want to spend $400 on a new fuel pump assembly

    What do you think?

    I think the epoxy will hold just fine as long as you use the good stuff. I dont like the playdoh type epoxy, the stuff you mend between your fingers before applying. That stuff is only good for filling the ride plate holes. Get the epoxy GEL, the stuff that comes in the twin seringes (spell check) and is mixed with a stick. I use a little PVC pipe cleaner before applying the GEL, just let the surfaces dry good after using the cleaner before applying the GEL. The stuff can be worked for a few minutes with a wet finger tip, then sanded and painted to hide the blemmish.

    I used proper 2 part liquid epoxy, well cleaned first.

    Just read the packed and it actually says fuel safe so i think it should be good.

    Now i just have to finish drilling it without breaking it again!

    spewing should hold allright though, maybe even leave the glueing until you install it as it might try and move somewhat once you tighten the bolts up

    how did you attach that fitting into the top of it though? as in the fuel pump nipple bit...
