Fuel Pump

Last night whilst changing some fuel hoses I managed to snap one of the barbs off the fuel pump of my Tohatsu 90.

These all seem to be fairly generic across all sub 100hp outboards but wondering if anyone either has a spare pump (I just need the plastic casing) or has successfully tapped a brass nipple into one of these?

The pump itself is fine and I know they are fairly cheap I am just more annoyed at myself for breaking it!

Rebuilt them a couple of times but not repaired one. I'd personally avoid a plastic repair as it will always be a weak point and no doubt let you down when you least expect it. Put it down to experience.

Snapped one of the barbs off before, ended up replacing the entire pump with a mikuni unit which (touch wood) has been bulletproof, no gasket issues like the tohatsu one
