Pierburg fuel pump 1300/1600

Eric, your Pierburg fuel pump that I purchased from you recently has worked flawlessly and looks brand new. I love the original design on all my stock motors. This is the second I've bought from you and wouldn't hesitate to order from you again. Thank you for preserving these items for us.

36 HP - German Pierburg Fuel Pump

A very high quality original pump. I am very impressed so far and more so once I get it installed.
Thank you!

An Award Winner

At last June’s VW Concurs d’Elegance show my bug took Runner Up, stock 1958-1967, no doubt in part to the judges close up inspection of the correct Solex 30 PICT-1 carburetor that looked brand new. The other components of the top end were also from Eric: fuel pump and coil. The oil-bath air cleaner was repaired and painted by Eric. I had the generator from his grandfather’s bug rebuilt and installed in my car. Everything was top notch and I’m impressed. Now, even my distributor was rebuilt by Eric. The distributor cap was supplied by me from NOS stock. Every piece has been worth the price.

Love it and it looks fantastic! I’ll post on IG soon!

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. Please let me know if I can do anything else to help your projects.


Definitely a nice restoration and adds that classic touch to my bonestock '65. Great work!! Couldn't be happier!!!

Thank you for the purchase! Please let me know if I can help in any other way.

Another Excellent Product

The rebuilt 12Volt Bosch coil and bracket are awesome. I just wish that the paint didn’t scratch so easily. It scratched when the bracket slipped as I was installing it.

These pieces of history deserve the best

Opening the box from LR is never a surprise. Everything I’ve ordered including this coil has been like jewelry. The attention to detail is of the highest standard. A pleasant experience from their website to the final delivery of product. I like supporting VW businesses that care. LR is one if those. Our Double Cab deserves to have the best. Thank you Eric and Amanda for supporting the VW community.

Thank you so much for the support, Timm.

40hp Fuel Pump

The restored fuel pump is artwork. Incredible.

Thank you so much for the support!

Perfect for my 1961 Beetle (with Alternator)

Thanks Eric for your excellent restored pump - a piece of artwork producing exactly 3 psi pressure. My initial concern on potential pump fitting issue in the alternator equiped engine is unfounded.

Kudos for the level of interaction provided when I hit installation issue caused by aftermarket pedestal’s dimension variance. That’s really comforting for customer who is on the other side of the globe like me…

I'm so glad we were able to get things sorted out. Please do reach out anytime if we can help again.

Coil arrived nicely packaged and appears perfect.


Awesome quality! Very happy with this fuel pump. It looks better than new.

Excellent quality

Having purchased multiple restored German engine components from Eric, I can tell you first hand he's the best at what he does. This 6V coil installed with no issues and completes my period correct '63 Beetle.

Just what I needed to make this project

Exactly what we need to make our 67 beetle perfect. Description, communication, product, packaging, shipping, and service exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend.

Thanks Eric!
As usual...Great product.. Great service.... Great advice!!

Thank You!!

Fuel pump & 12 volt coil

Thanks again Eric , your attention to detail is impeccable .
Keep up the good work !!!

Very nice restoration

I’ve been wanting to replace my Brosol pump for years on my 67 that I’ve had for 35 years. Finally did it and I am glad. Very satisfied with the Pierburg. I am impressed with the restoration done on the pump and feel that it will outlast me! Eric was great to deal with and that is important for me. Bottom line is I highly recommend lane russell for any restoration service they provide.

Fuel pump

I've always been proud (bragged actually) that my car is original, which you do not see today. Even though everything on it has probably been replaced at least once, it looks like it did on the showroom floor. I was at a car show a couple of years ago and someone pointed out it had a Brazilian fuel pump. Ruined my day. When I saw Eric had these available, I had to have one. It is beautiful (and original). Eric was great with any questions I had too. Definitely recommend it!

Pierburg fuel pump

Looks great, functions great. Extremely responsive, helpful and encouraging. Just a great experience.

Pierburg Fuel Pump

Replaced my working Brazilian fuel pump with Lane Russell restored German Pierburg unit for aesthetics, wanting 'original', and the quality that goes with that. Crazy, but it was my wife Becky that suggested this, and found these on 1967 VW Beetle ( She recognized the 'cool factor' and I followed her lead. Delivery was timely, packaging excellent, and then the pump itself -- spectacular pride of workmanship immediately evident. And now we're proud of it. Eric's communication and customer service is 'old school' -- personal, accessible, and knowledgeable.

Buying from Lane Russell is an experience.

Pierburg Fuel Pump 1300/1600

The pump was very nicely refurbished. It looked like the actuator arm had even been replaced as I could see no wear from the previous install.
The pump output the perfect pressure to VW specs and was a very even pressure.
My previous after-market pump was outputting more than double the recommended pressure and the pressure was very 'pulsey'.
Even with 3 gaskets the pressure was still above 5psi.
I have no qualms recommending these pumps from Lane Russell.
The personal service from Eric was brilliant and the delivery to Western Australia was very quick even in COVID chaos times.

Always the best

Eric has allowed me to make my car better than new. Most important is the fact that his parts are the same or better than new.
