Default fuel pump nipple

Damm, I broke the nipple on the fuel pump. Is there a fix other than buying a new pump? I was putting the tank back on my 09 Jackpot and heard something snap. Sure enough broke the nipple. Can I get just the plastic base?

I ended up turning a new nipple at work out of aluminum. Took the pump out, removed the stainless clip and rubber cup. Drilled and tapped the plastic body. Thanks for the link ridinman.

You're welcome. I just used the search button. The real thanks go to Cowboy who had the same problem and posted pics of his solution. Glad I remembered reading that last winter.

Speaking of nipples, you have to love that "Hot Chicks on Bikes" thread.
