Question After market Fuel pump

I have a 1996 Power Stroke and the fuel pump is weeping fuel. Is there a better fuel pump then stock?


Thanks

Yeah, an electric one with a better fuel system warpped around it. Otherwise you will have to replace it with another factory style pump.

If I understand it correctly the Air Dog system works inline with the stock transfer pump. Is there a stand alone electric fuel system with adjustable fuel pressure. If I install the stock pump do I need to shim to adjust my fuel pressure? It looks like I can replace the stock fuel pump with out removing the fuel filter canister and all the hoses, wires, etc. attached to it; or is it a optical illusion.

The conversion involves removing the factory pump, lines and filter housing; then mounting the new pump and filter, wiring the pump, and running the lines to and from the engine, while using an aftermarket fuel pressure regulator.

As for replacing the factory pump I don't know, I've never taken one out by itself. Everytime I have removed one I had the fuel bowl out already with no intent to reinstall either.

I wouldn't bother with trying to adjust fuel pressure on a factory fuel system as it doesn't supply any more volume, just changes the pressure. If your dropping pressure with the factory system then you need to find another alternative.
