Too late chalk it up to lesson learned
Since I have had to replace it twice in a year now, I went with the line of thought "get what you pay for". The last two pumps came from Oreilly's and Autozone I figured I would go with the dealership this time. Oreilly's said their pump was made by some company I have never heard of before.
Long story short...........dealership pump and bad pump on the truck are both carters.
Now, it probably doesn't matter what pump I put on the truck because I think I am pumping about 50% sand with my fuel
into the fuel bowl. I am not exaggerating...I was stunned by how much crap was in the bottom. I pulled the bowl last December when I did the fuel pump and cleaned it then. The JB weld I put in the pitted areas is still there
. So that leads me to wonder what is in my tanks and how do I clean them out? I'll do a separate post on this topic. Also, I plan to do the FPR shim while it's all apart.
