Oh ok. Too bad they couldn't have moved the pump dive pin closer to the cam gear. The intake lobe is much wider, that way the pump pin could run in its own path on the cam lobe.

I like that vane pump idea better. Would have been a bit more complicated to incorporate into the 130 design, if not impossible.

The 90T may indeed have gone to the vane type pump.

However, the diaphragm pump was returned when the 100 came out.

Never had a problem with them.

Yep I passed the new in box 100 ABC on to a fellow at RCU. It did have the pump. Saito later did away with the pumps. So really, the pump problem isn't a problem after all
