The 1962-65 T34s were fitted with the early style 2-piece fuel pump cap (below) that has a rounded side on the left with a flat side on the right and a round metal ring that keeps the two pieces together on the fuel pump. The fuel pump is different than the later-style (with single piece cap that's round all the way around) since the access parts are different. Original early T3 fuel pumps are rarely seen on theSamba if you know what to look for. Later style ones are the most common. Your best bet is to ask Larry Edson or Jason Weigel or Greg Skinner privately to sell you one of their spares. Repair kits are available for the fuel pumps if you keep your eyes open. It's always a good idea to have a spare for your running T34 to use for diagnosis when you have fuel problems.
Here's the later-style that was fitted in 1966-69:

Thanks Lee. Thats a lot of good information. I will post the picture of the plastic cap I purchased from a swap meet tonight. I think it is the right plastic cap, as I do not have the hole for the brass fitting on the LH side, and there is one comlpete hole for the fuel input and more of a diagnol slit for fuel output.
