Bit if a weird one. I have a genuine holden fuel pump (L34 7PSI) on my 355. It has started weeping around where the two halves meet. Anything I can do to fix it?
If not, what brand pump should I use to replace it? Clearly the GM pumps are not what they used to be!
Cheers

You could take it off & try to close the crimped join down, don't know how successful it will be, you've got nothing too lose. 

Can't help with another pump suggestion.

Use the old style servicable AC pump.

Second hand, swap meets, market place, ebay.
Then kit it to suit.
