My new fass hpfe (adjustable psi, 23a motor, 6 year warranty, blah blah) just took a dump on me. It had been turning on and off intermittently the last couple days and would try to spin the motor when the switch was flipped, occasionally staying on. Yes, I've got a pre filter on it. Yesterday it ran the whole day without turning off so I didn't swap in my old fass that I've got running a spinner centrifuge on a stand when I was at the shop this morning. Well that decision bit me in the ***.
This pump has probably 200 hours MAX on it since I bought it (used for diesel only). I'll pull it off and send it in for warranty, we'll see if they'll honor it this time.
Anyways, I need something that is going to be reliable. Hell, I'm not even pumping thick fluids anymore and I'm still having issues with these inefficient "heavy duty" fass pumps.
I have the fuel bowl deleted so I'll need something I can work into my 3/8" rubber lines and unless its got a regulator on it, I'll need an aftermarket regulator. Anyone have any input on what will be reliable?
I do have a 96 block in the truck now which has the hole for the cam driven mechanical fuel pump (have a couple of those laying around too), but I'm not sure if they'll fit with the super duty intake spider or if I could work them into my system conveniently since I've got frame mounted filters.
