Default I cant find a walbro 190 HP for 93?

Ugh, everywhere I went only does the walbro 190, not HP for the 90-93, everywhere only does 94-97 on the HP units? Ive looked at like 5 different sites? What gives?

will this work on a 93?

Interesting that they pretty much sell the same pump for two different applications (look at the part number..) and then just tell you to mod the carrier like we've been doing all along to fit the 1.8 style Walbro into the 1.6 carrier.

As I said, it's the same pump. You'll have to modify the carrier to fit it on the 1.6.

I just got the Walbro 190HP pump for my 1990. And it will fit with a little bit of enginuity. There is a metal plate that holds the stock pump in place on the OE sender. The new pump is just under 1/4" too long for the stock screw and plate to hold it. No biggy, 4 6mm flat washers stacked between the plate and the sender plus a longer screw and voila it fits fine. The zip tie anchors the pump to the sender, the plate makes sure you have a tight fit to the supply tube.

I'm confused - do I need the pump kit to install the 190 walbro on a 91 ?


Thanks

they don't make an install kit for 1990-1993 Miata. You have to improvise using the install kit for 1994 - up. It can be done.

Well, I just got done trying to install my walbro 190 HP pump, and ran into the above problem where I need a long screw, and washers (or some kind of spacer) so I had to stop for the evening and pick up the hardware tomorrow.

Would it be easier to just take saw to the 1.6 carrier to remove the o-ring, cap and plastic spacer. Then use the supplied fuel line and clamps?

How are the other 1.6 owners doing it?

update: I'm just going to cut the little cone off and use the hose. Seems like a cleaner install that way

All I did was cut the funnel off of the carrier and install the pump. Not hard.

BEGI sells these. I emailed Stepahnie yesterday and she said it is a direct replacement or something to that effect requiring only minor modification of a stock part. Maybe she means a longer screw ( ? )

I can't really picture what I have to do until I have a pump in hand.

So the longer screw and spacer would allow the stock funnel and O ring to be used ?

Will the Walbro hit the bottom of the tanks?

Thanks
