Default Need new inline fuel pump V8 wrangler

My pump started to make loud noises like its pushing air. I can see on the gauge that is at the reg. show a loss of PSI, and it bleeds down to 0 rite after the pump shuts off (5 second pre start prime).

I have been using a Bosch pump from a 88 F350 with a 460. I got it free from a guy and ran it for 7 or so years.

I like this pump because it has a nipple for the inlet, and than a threaded port for the outlet. Where as I see MSD and Summit brand pumps use barbs on both ends.

I guess I'm asking if anyone has had any luck with a particular pump that is externally mounted. I run the RCI behind the seat fuel cell.

I run a mopar 360 LA engine with Megasquirt EFI management.

I like factory fuel pumps the best,you can get them anywhere if you brake down,even on sunday.I know a lot of ford pumps are meant for the push/pull set up,one in tank,one in line.I have seen people have problems burning up the inline pump,because they are using it to pull fuel,not push it.Yours lasted 7 yrs,so it should be fine set up that way.
Doesnt really help you,but you get a free bump.

Thanks for the response bdd. You are correct the pump I am using is meant as a "booster" pump as the tank would have a small pump to push the fluid to this pump. I have no idea how long this pump was used for before I even got it.

It works fine, then as soon as it gets hot it makes loud noises and the PSI drops. I'm sure the crappy RCI pickup does not help as its just a tube and when I offroad i'm sure I get air in the system which does not cool the pump.

I do not want to go with a pump that the autoparts stores stock as they are junk. Airtex and whatever else they have these days. I use to work at Advance Auto and it was not uncommon to see someone come back a few weeks for a warranty exchange.

I think i'll just go with the Summit brand pump as they normally have good quality stuff. Lower PSI should help with keeping the fuel temp down since it won't be cycling it as fast.
