Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

Externally mounted. Fuel cell in the car already. Can I install it in the engine compartment? Back 30 years ago, in my teenage days we mounted them in the trunk. I didn't really want an electric because of the noise but have had two horrible experiences with an Professional Products Piston pumps. I'm on my second one now. I've got 13 miles on my car. Ticking noise sounds like a valve tapping. Adjusted valves on that side three times before I realized it was the pump.

Re: Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

Skelly,
What engine ? How many horsepower ? For most street applications a traditional block mounted pump like the ones that Carter, Holley and Edelbrock sell will be more than enough.

Most electric pumps do not like to "suck" meaning that they need to be near the fuel source and preferably below it so that they are gravity fed. So I would say under the hood is out. I am fairly sure that some of the newer gerotor type pumps ae a lot quieter than the old vane style ones. Only thing is I think most of those require a return line.

Re: Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

I used this one after I lost the fuel pump lobe on my cam. Worked well and tucked up neatly in the right rear corner of the body, next to the fuel tank.

Re: Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

How far above the bottom of the tank was the inlet to the Carter Pump? Wouldn't a fuel pump with the pump above the inlet be a better option? Something like a Jegs 15913?

Not sure if that's the exact one that my buddy uses. However, he's got a couple of flathead '32 Fords and uses Carter because he says they work great and are quiet. He's got a Holley on his '40 Ford pickup with sbc/6-pack and said he's going to change it out to a Carter. That pump is LOUD but I don't know what kind of isolation he's using on the mount.

Re: Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

You need to size your pump according to HP....I think Magnafuel are about the best...

Re: Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

355hp ZZ4. I'm unable to install a standard mechannical because of the location my builder choose for the A/C compressor. He installed a Professional Products Piston Pump. The first one failed at less than one mile on the car. I'm on the second one now, load tapping noise, must go. This is why I want to know what electric pumps are quite.

Re: Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

Additionally, I'm running into an issue locating a dust cover for the 700R4 locally. Any vendor's recommended?

Re: Who makes a quite electric fuel pump?

My buddy has a Carter like mentioned above and it is louder than my Aeromotive A1000. The A1000 is quiter than the electric fan for sure. Once the car is on you can't hear it at all.

One big influencer on the electric pumps is how they are mounted. I mounted mine with a plate and rubber bushings.

The gerator style like the Mallory pumps are the quietest but I have never seen one in person.
