the small hole on the side near the terminals has the end of the spring blocking. you can see part of it on the third picture.

Not 100% sure on the brass rivot but the white piece is missing another section of it and goes into the broken discharge tube at the top (just grabbed a pump I had laying around to check)

Was it a new pump? Why didn't they ship it in the OEM packaging?

You should punch the person who shipped that bulky fuel pump in a small packaged like that in the face. Clearly the fault is not USPS but whoever shipped it out to you in the first place.

fact of the matter is im unhappy with both of them. it was used. the seller charged me 20 bucks for shipping. i told him it would be only 10 bucks in a medium sized box. but instead he put it in the 5 buck box and dont even supply any packaging peanuts to protect it (im sure that owuld have prevented all of this). and for the cost of it, he didnt even insure it with the extra 15 bucks he charged me with (insurance is like ten bucks)

God damn. Ya its such a small package. You can make a small box and it would have costed like 3$ and then could have used newspaper or plastic bags from the gorcery store or something for make sure it didnt bounce around. Not just throw it in a box.

Thats almost as bad as my x mas wrapping wrapped box from canada.
