Is there any way to fix a leaking fuel pump?

depends where the leak is, if it is the type with the plastic hose connections and its those then possibly.
If its a diaphragm problem then yes
if it is the valves then possibly.
New pumps aren't excessively expensive though.

becareful of universal electric pumps, they are much higher PSI than the 2 to 3 psi the SU carb can cope with, alot of the time they push the extra fuel down the overflow system
