Stamped steel fuel pumps

A stamped steel valve chamber pump incorporates a large diameter diaphragm for high capacity and superior vapor handling characteristics. Its innovative design is utilized as original equipment by domestic automobile manufacturers.*

Billet aluminum and polished super street racing fuel pumps

These pumps are state-of-the-art in circle track and drag racing applications. Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum on CNC machines, they feature a 3-valve design that provides simplified operation and high flow characteristics. The reinforced diaphragms are actuated by heat-treated, channeled levers, while fuel inlet and outlet feature -8 and -10 AN fittings that incorporate a copper crush washer and they’re sealed with Loctitw. Fittings are plated steel and match up perfectly with today’s braided stainless steel fuel lines. Each pump is burnished for a highly polished finish, accented with black oxide TORX self-tapping screws. Available on both gasoline and alcohol models.*
