Fuel Pump

I have a stock SD pump that I pulled at the j-yard. If I take a battery and go black on pump to neg and red on pump to pos--should the pump run? Just asking because I did that at the yard on a batt showing 13 volts with a meter and the pump clicked but did not run-bad pump or not enough ampreage?

Thanks

Re: Fuel Pump

Ummm.....yes it should run, not the best thing for a pump to run em dry, but sounds like you have a bad one.

Re: Fuel Pump

Thanks---I tried another battery and some fuel line and a small coke can of fuel and it pumped it through. Didn't know if it had been sitting awhile and if they would corrode and freeze up.

Re: Fuel Pump

Hmmm...... I would be a bit leery to throw that on a DD.

Good Luck
