    Make shift plastic pump diaphragms

    I couldn't find a store in the area for fuel pump rebuild kit for my WaveVenture 1100 that has a separate fuel pump supplying the triple carbs (it is a pentagon shaped fuel pump). It was easy to find regular gasket material to cutout, but I couldn't find the material for the plastic diaphragms.

    I decided to get overhead projector sheets from Office Depot (they sell by the sheet at the service counter) and soak it in fuel overnight. i guess the non-skid powdery finish came off as pink sludge, but the actual plastic sheet remained intact. So I used it for a homemade rebuild of my fuel pump and it has been working great for the past month.

    Hope this could help someone else that was in the same bind as me. Just don't wait a whole month to get the proper rebuild kit like me!
