Title: Fuel supply system component protective construction

Abstract: A fuel supply system component protective construction includes a high-pressure fuel pump (21), a protector (41), and a pin member (51). The high-pressure fuel pump (21) includes a block (31) and a union (23). The block (31) is endowed with a relatively high rigidity with respect to the union (23). The protector (41) confronts the union (23) and the block (31) at a certain distance. The pin member (51) is provided between the block (31) and the protector (41). When the high-pressure fuel pump (21) and the protector (41) shift in the direction to mutually approach one another, the pin member (51) contacts the block (31) before the protector (41) contacts the union (23), so that a resilient force operates upon the high-pressure fuel pump (21) and the protector (41).
