i know what one piece gasket you on about,they are few and far between,better option but not many people use them so they are not normaly a stocked item.

as for the pump,i spose it can't hurt having a higher flow rate.

Carefull with the high volume option. This is a known cause of rooting the dizzy drive gear. The high volume pumps increase the load on the drive gear from the idler shaft, and you may destroy both the shaft and the drive gear.

Done that once. I suspect its also the cause of other people here having similar issues.

They are an EF/EL part only, and only available genuine. And its metal cased in a rubber outer, apart from the 1/2 moons which are all rubber.
