Check out this fuel pump

This may be a concept that has been visited before, I don't know. Was perusing the Retrotek site and ran across this mechanical fuel pump. Kinda expensive at $190 but looks cool and it sure improves on some of the line routing problems with some pumps.

Piston pump.
220 gph free flow.
Must be used with deadhead regulator as it flows at 60psi.
Flows only as much fuel as needed with no drop in RPM range.
Uses 20% of the force needed by a regular mechanical pump.

I did one for "piston fuel pump" but only went back about 18 months and didn't see any titles that indicated they were about one hence the "This may be a concept that has been visited before, I don't know." Sorry. Please disregard post everyone.

Re: Check out this fuel pump

Steiner, revise your search and look for "Race Pumps" like mnm referenced. Check several boards. I live about 30 minutes from the place and went as far as calling them to order it. The guy was headed out of town and asked me to call back on Monday. That weekend I did more searching and got so spooked I went a different direction.

Quick Fuel Technologies OEMs those pumps and claims they have had good luck but I saw too many horror stories....

Thanks. I personally run an electric and FI so I couldn't use one but had never seen a piston pump before. Of course a lot of stuff falls into that category....

Re: Check out this fuel pump

On on my second one now. My car now has 13 miles on it. It's lowd tapping sound caused me to remove the valve cover on that side three times before I realized it wasn't a valve tapping. This pump produces 50 psi and cause pulsation at the regulator. Gauge pulses approximately one and half psi at idle. I'll sell you mine when I remove it this weekend with the dead head regulator and all the paper work that goes along. This is a slimline product that fit when nothing else would, I installed the A/C compressor passenger side lower mount and a standard mechanical wouldn't fit. I'm also not particularly fond of the orings that are at the bottom of the machined ports smashed by the AN adaptors. Other than that I love it. Oh, I view this thing like some of those high maintenance women, they look great, but ?????? , who wants to deal with that ??????
