Stock fuel pump on its way out. Is there a better one??

Well I popped the hood today for some reason and noticed that my fuel pressure gauge is only reading 23 PSI. So I blew some air back into the tank, nothing changed, threw in a fresh fuel filter, still no change in pressure. So I'm thinkin that with 205,200 miles on the odometer, that this stock fuel pump is just plain worn out. Sound about right??

I would love to purchase the CPRx from Dieselsite since its the whole fuel system, but right now I just simply just don't have the $$, and I don't want to be driving the truck around at 23 PSI damaging my injectors. So....my question, is there an aftermarket (better than stock) fuel pump available that will bolt up in the stock location, to the stock fuel lines, with no modifications required?? If so how much do they cost??
Ford wants $369 for a new one, but if I can't find a better one that will bolt right in, I guess i'll just buy another stocker till I have the $$ for a complete fuel system.

Re: Stock fuel pump on its way out. Is there a better one??

I swore I would never use another electric pump again after killing 4 of them. I already had purchased a belt driven fuel pump and was planning on installing it when my last pump started acting like hell.

I have yet to see an actual problem with the pumping mechanism itself. Its always the electric motor that goes out.

Well, along came Fuelab with a Brushless electric fuel pump. I'm going to give it a try. And I honestly don't think my problems will continue. I've run brushless motors on the RC truck for years and years. I've been the same one for at least 5 or 6 years now.

I'm going to recommend using one of these Prodigy pumps from Fuelab. It's the only pump I've seen where someone is actually addressing the real issue with electric pumps on these trucks in daily drivers. The MOTOR.

The website says that pump must be used with a regulator. Will the stock reg. work? And does that pump bolt right up or will I need some fittings?

No it will bolt into the stock location, and you can use the stock wiring. You may have to change the fittings to something else (it comes with 2 fittings). I didn't keep my stock ones but it looked like they would screw right into the new pump.

Re: Stock fuel pump on its way out. Is there a better one??

strokin early..99 seemed to have good result with this walbro.
he also had some kind of home brewed setup.
between charles howard, and airflow..

you should come up with something.
i would say fass or air dog but they are costly.
