Beckett AFG-Plastic Air Shutter
I've noticed about 3 times now over the years, inside the housing on a Beckett AFG, there's this plastic air shutter/pump coupling combo. It opens by centrifugal force when the motor spins and closes when it stops. I've seen these on some AFG's that were installed late 80's/early 90's. I guess they were trying to replicate a Riello shutter to stop standby loss.
Seems like it was a failure as it didn't last long. The biggest problem is air/lint dirt sticking to them, then they rub and make noises. Hard to clean in/on/around them.
I don't see them listed in any current Beckett literature.
I just had a fuel pump replacement and ended up taking it off completely, kinda of a PITA.
I was just wondering if anyone knows the history on them.
