External fuel pump

Post by TSEJEEPERS » Wed Oct 10, 2018 2:51 pm

For a couple of years I have been running a external fuel pump.
I tried for a number of years running a internal one in my fuel cell. They did not last long. Some where around 2 years. Pretty much every year we went to Moab. :lol:
Well I went to a external one that has worked pretty well, I put it in around 4 years ago and have not had a problem since.
I used Airtex E2000 fuel pump. It worked well but was loud. It was not too bad on weekend runs but running it for the big trips made me crazy. :evil:
Today I put a Walbro pump in. https://www.summitracing.com/search?Sor ... =F30000271
This is even more quiet than the stock pump.
I can not even hear it when I turn the key.
I did save the Airtex one in case I have a problem on the trail.

I installed a Walbro GSL392 (255 lph at 60 psi) as an external fuel pump on the 46 Power Wagon when I re-powered it with the TBI V8. So for so good and yes it's relatively quite as well.
