Just curious if anyone has replaced a fuel pump on an 81 LUV gas truck? Were you able to find an OEM or did you use a universal aftermarket pump?

THanks

Went through about 4 "OEM" pumps from O Reillys and AutoZone before I just caved and spent the money on a Holley Red.

As far as I can tell, the Ethanol in today's fuel ruins the cheap pumps.

Some of them only lasted 6 months.

Yikes! Thanks for the information. The Red is a little more pricey over the OEM pumps. Anyone try the Speedway Red pump?

There are quite a few negative reviews on that speedway pump.

Here’s a comparable unit for a decent price. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Sniper-8 ... 31302.html

You can get a bad pump from a lot of manufacturers. I had a walbro pump, a really expensive one, be dead on arrival and I’ve had good luck with cheapo Amazon Chinese pumps.
