Fuel pump diaphragm materials?

Ok my 79 gl fuel pump is starting to weep a little fuel from the weep hole . I have heard some people have used new diaphragm material from sbc pumps even the old Rebuildable sbc diaphragm seem a thing of the past around here .my question is has anyone found alternatives, say sheet material? Ebay and amazon show some fabrics if you will, personally even 1/16Ē seems a little thick to me .... just looking for ideas . No I donít want to use an old tube Iíd rather have a more permanent solution lol thanks

That has been discussed before but I don't know where the material was sourced from.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It is too bad that PhotoBucket decided to become a leech and won't allow us to link to their photos anymore....

so, the 2nd link is useless now.

I bookmarked the first one, seems simple enough, if one is patient.

Me too. I like to fix things but that would be hard to pass up if I needed one.
