I am looking for a fuel pump. I have called four companies that sell FASS, I am just looking for the electrical pump and don't want a whole FASS system. There seems to be adjustable and non adjustable electric pumps. The FASS website has one that goes up to eighty PSI and one that goes up to a hundred thirty five PSI. All four companies did not know the product line. and wanted to just sell a complete system. I need this NOW! Truck is down. My truck has a fuel filter, a water seperator and a air seperator. Just need to order an electric pump.

Thanks

Aeromotive's A1000 pump seems to work fine. You do need to have an unrestricted supply line though that is all larger line than the stock 5/16 bottleneck.

Your in a hurry so get a stock 99-03 fuel pump and use that. Then take your time and figure out what is best for your setup.

Is it just a lift pump (7-14psi) or will it also need a pressure pump? I got so fed up with replacing the stock pump I put in a Carter rotary pump

and a second pressure pump from Walbro to boost the pressure up to 60-90 PSI. The Walbro went 50 days and died.


It felt great pounding in the freeze plug in where the dippy ford fuel pump lived.

It ran great for those 50 days, actually truely awesome! I just need something more robust. I really would like to have only one pump with a big electric motor. The FASS stand alone pump looks good, but the four vendors I have talked to just want to look in the catalog and seem to not understand what their products do. They want to sell a complete system, I have a water seperator and vapor seperator plus filters. I am building this to stand up to B99 Biodiesel, having melted the cheep plastic junk from Ford that lived on the top of the motor.

I am not hung up on the FASS name at all.

I did call Pureflow with a few questions. Said they would call me back, I am still waiting two days later. I should call them again.

Please wait for a site operator to respond.

You are now chatting with 'Jeff'

Jeff: Welcome to XDP, how may I help you today?

you: Can you answer a question about the Pureflow Raptor pump?

Jeff: I can try

you: What is the output fuel pressure?

Jeff: on which truck

you: Not on a truck

Jeff: what application?

you: Diesel motor needs up to 100 PSI from fuel pump Can it deliver?

Jeff: Well its hard to answer the questions exactly because different trucks have different pressures pre set but I wouldn't expect to see 100 psi out of it

you: Yea thanks.

I think it is time for a couple glasses of two buck Chuck.

One more bit of information, Biodiesel may degrade fuel pumps that have lead bronze parts in them. I just ordered a Weldon pump, which does have lead bronze parts. I will need to get my WVO fuel system together and stop spending $5.09 a gallon for BioDiesel. WVO is compatable with lead bronze.

// WELDON RACING PUMPS // Viewing product: A2005-A (-8 inlet & outlet)



My new credo: Learn by destroying.
