Installation Notes:

The original fuel pump came with push-on spade connectors for the power supply that were easily disturbed. Bosch has updated the design to more secure eyelet connectors. You will have to cut off the old spades and crimp on the new eyelets. For more details please see our instructions.

Maintenance:

A common reason your fuel pump fails actually has to do with your gas tank. There are seals on your tank that eventually wear out, which can allow all kinds of crud to get into the fuel system. This crud can clog the fuel filter (if you have a pre-filter), or clog / damage the pump itself if you have a post-filter. The result is the same...your pump needs good fuel flow to operate properly, if that flow is restricted your pump will eventually fail. One tell-tale sign that something is amiss, is that your pump will "buzz". If you ever hear this, you either need to replace the filter, clean out the pump, or both. Ultimately, this means you need to clean (or better yet, replace) your fuel tank and all associated seals and breather lines. There is only one way crud is making it into your filter or pump, and it starts with the tank. Bosch will NOT warranty any pump that contains debris.

Kit includes:

  • Fuel Pump

  • Hardware for pump:

    • Two (2) eyelet connectors

    • Two (2) washers

    • Two (2) nuts

    • Two (2) protective rubber boots

  • One (1) large and one (1) small ear clamp for your fuel hose connections - we are the only vendor that conveniently supplies these for you!

TOOL REQUIREMENT: 

A pair of “pincer pliers” are required for the ear clamps. We highly recommend and personally use these Oetiker Side-Jaw pliers (roughly $45). They are excellent as they have front and side pincers that help in tight spaces.

If you're looking for a more budget friendly option, Oetiker Compound Action Side Jaw pliers (roughly $25) have the front and side pincers, are about half the cost of the ones above, and are also highly rated. However, we have never personally used them.
