Electric Fuel Pump Folks: What Pump do You Use?
Posted by: Nick_Soapdish ()

My van came with an electric fuel pump which I'm pretty sure is garbage and very sure was poorly installed. Looking to replace with a not-garbage pump. So, folks who run electric pumps, what do you have/recommend. Thanks!

I got over 10 years out of a 4 psi Carter. As for the one on ebay, if John Sweet sells it, it will be fine.

Sorry stitch, but that is NOT a pump for Corvairs as it's a 9PSI pump. The number is for a Air Tex 5-9 PSI spec. pump. It puts out 9PSI except at maximum flow that the Corvair NEVER uses. Also the label looks bogus. Probably a counterfeit or relabeled Carter pump sold as an AirTex - BEWARE EBAY.

The Air Tex #E8016s 2.5-4.5PSI (Corvair HV carb is spec'd for 4-5PSI) Note the AirTex only drops to 2.5PSI at 30GPH that you'll never use unless you have a BIG fuel leak.

Davemotohead has great praise for the Facet #40105 3-5PSI (3 psi at 30GPH.)

Carter makes a Air Tex look-alike, but it very noisy and I've not heard anything good about it.

I have been happy with this Airtex pump I installed last fall. It tested at 4 psi on the workbench @ 13.6 volts.

I am convinced it is not a clone but on Amazon you never know if the pump you get today will be the same as the pump you re-order tomorrow. Sometimes a low price is the best indicator of a cloned pump so don't go too cheap when searching unless you are buying from a trusted source.

Airtex E8016S. I've been buying them on Ebay through JC Whitney. They are genuine Airtex not a knock-off.

I bought two Airtex E8016S for my coupe and convertible. Got one from Marty Katz and the other from Amazon. Both were from the same manufacturer. Very quite pump. Mounted on a rubber standoff.
