[Healeys] Fuel pumps (AGAIN!)

Not sure (but it doesn't smell like curry ;). It was recommended by
Mike at Star Auto Electrics. I've got over 10K miles on it and, so far,
so good. It does seem to charge a little on the high side--about
15V--but I've got an AGM battery and I think they like a bit more
charging juice. It does have the flimsier internals like other
aftermarket I've seen.
I've kept the original in case I ever come across someone who can
credibly rebuild them. I swapped the original cover to the new one.
