There's a metal (I though Aluminium, but perhaps Steel) plate embedded in the fiberglass that provides the mechanical support for the bracket. It looks to me like, for some reason, the fiberglass...

I've got one that I'm ready to sell, but I can't imagine that shipping it is going to be a reasonable answer. Anyone coming to Phoenix who wants one, give me a call.

That's an external fuel pump used on TBI engines. It's an easy replacement - get a Carter P-5000 kit, bolt it in, and you're good to go.

What size does it break down to? I'd be interested in a road trip for picking it up, if I could fit it in my car (not worth the effort to road trip in the truck). I've got a sedan that has perhaps...

My trailer was similar to that originally. I've since rebuilt it as a side-swinger.

There's no difference in the actuator in either case - this I think is the inner sliding...

I disagree with your comment about the distributor turning freely - it's attached to the oil pump. As my drill will attest, turning the oil pump is heavy-duty work. With a lot of force on the gear...
