I was installing and Ignitor unit in my 65 I6 and noticed a little oil leak from the fuel pump/block and a little weeping (gas) from the pump 'bowl'. A mechanic friend says the diaphram is getting ready to fail. Both the leaks are a symptom. Can anyone confirm this diagnosis?? I'd rather just get a new pump than sit on the side of the road. I just got the car a few weeks ago and only have put about 100 miles on it so I do not know the cars quirks yet. Thanks for any info.. Martin..

My philosophy from an aircraft mechanic:

If it weeps. Don't worry about it.

If it seeps. Keep an eye on it.

If it leaks. Fix it.
