How did the diaphragm diameter compare to OEM?

Default They also have the spacer!

Not sure. I've never had an OEM one.

**After some serious P/N digging, I found a Fel-pro spacer that is proper for this application.

A well-known Land Cruiser parts vendor, with whom I have had a close relationship for many years, started carrying aftermarket replacement Kyosan Denki fuel pumps some years ago. They sent me one to test. I found that even though it was the same company that makes OEM pumps for Toyota, there were numerous areas where the specs were downgraded from OEM.

Among them were that the diaphragm was significantly smaller, the lever was thinner metal, and it needed a spacer or "insulator" in Toyota jargon (along with a second gasket) to get the lever the proper distance from the cam lobe.

As a result of my observations, they started including the spacer with each pump along with a second gasket. I carry that pump in my trail spares, but wouldn't install it as primary; subsequently I only use genuine OEM on all my Land Cruisers as well as my daughter's.

Anyway, that's why I was asking about O'Reilly's pumps and whether they were as good as OEM or not. Last time I bought a new pump I recall it was around $80-$90 or so even with our club discount at Stevinson.

Good info thanks Jeff! As far as the insulator is concerned there doesn't appear to be any difference (naked eye), there may be a material difference....not sure.

I'm going to pick up the new toyota insulator tomorrow to see if there is $21 worth the difference.

there doesn't appear to be a good way to get the insulator off without cracking it. When I rebuilt my 2f I cracked the one that was on there as well.

I reassembled with HI-Tack in hopes of preserving the one that I bought to replace the first one that I cracked....no luck

Hopefully, I'll never have to change this one.

I'll be sure and post up if this fuel pump gives me any fits.

The insulator I got from Stevinson Toyota is made of metal and can probably be reused forever. It does require a paper gasket on both sides though.
