[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.
