1997 Honda Ballade Repair Question
The mechanical pump is driven by a cam lobe, you may have to take the pump out and look inside with a mirror to help locate the cam, you may have hooked the lever under the cam by mistake.
Mechanical pump on a '97 vehicle? That model is not sold here but there is nothing that new using a mechanical pump.
As he mentions a fuel pump arm, i only surmise it is a mechanical pump.
Probably referring to fuel gauge float.
May well be... well if he responds we may get some further info. We don't have that model here in Aust, so i am not real sure what he is looking at.
If the engine is carburetted, it would use a fuel pump. There are still many such vehicles being sold around the world. Ballade is not a US model.
