    electric fuel pumps

    Post by Admin on Tue Jul 09, 2013 7:06 pm

    the universal in line pump on the 1 ton gave out--it was from 06 or there about, so that wasn't a surprise--the surprise is the current cost of the bottom of the line--one i would not have even considered 5 yrs ago, priced then at about 15.00 bux (mr gasket electronic micro pump)--now is 45 and up--nothing in town for less than 50 out the door

    they are still reasonable on line--but that don't fire the rig today

    think i'll send the lot across the scales and buy an electric bicycle

    what that old man said about not owning something that can be rented is looking better all the time  

    there is so much stuff in the fuels today that if you aren't running them pretty regular ( like everyday ), the fuel eats everything

    that's my bitch for today

    keep on keepin' on :great:

    Is that one for fuel injection or as a replacement for a fuel pump?

    spart--that would be a mechanical fuel pump replacement--  4 to 7 psi -- suitable for carbed engine---ultimately i intend(ed) to put a mechanical pump on this engine--- currently operating on the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" mode and it's not a road vehicle(it's a "sometimes" rolling toolbox and engine hoist platform) it gets the "cheapest and quickest" fix (farm learning never dies-mine was instilled by a "bohunk"--one of the most intelligent human beings i have had the opportunity to learn from--too bad i have a thick skull and a 30 yr seep factor   )

    on the bright side i learned that most of the "good" electric pumps, which can be ebayed for a fair price, are mfged by holley--look for procomp--pump and regulator packaged--65 dollars and up--summit brand, speedway motors brand, etc--gaskets and parts are available--many different psi ratings and fuel types available
