Going to do ele fuel, SD pump alternatives.

I know everyone does the SD pump or pumps, has anyone used aftermarket. What is the Fuel PSI and is there an exchange rate from gas to diesel?






Will something like this work?

MSD Electric Fuel Pump P/N 2225

Re: Going to do ele fuel, SD pump alternatives.

Lots of diff sd aftermarket pumps but only a few worth while.

You have your oem type...cheap reliable
Dual oems reliable, redundant support 500 hp plus
A walbro replaces oem easy swap in a sd hold 475 plus
The a1000, maine version
And the fuel lab.

Pressure wise a 99 to 03 like to see between 60 and 72 psi
Varies from truck to truck lotts like 62 and 65.

Hope that helps some.

Early 99 f350 4x4 crew cab, auto. pmt2 pcm
2001 cup holder ,T500, MAX AC ASSIST AC mod, Diy Twin tymar, TS chip, Powerslots & Hawk pads, ford AIC, ..... with big fat want to list.

Re: Going to do ele fuel, SD pump alternatives.

That's the thing I'm reconciling, do I go tandem pumps for redundacy or 1 big robust pump and count on it?

Thanks for the input.

I do carry my old stock SD pump in the tool box in case i would need it. Its a simple swap on the side of the road if i would ever have to do it.

Re: Going to do ele fuel, SD pump alternatives.

I'm assuming you're doing this on an OBS Joedaddy?

I converted 2 of my trucks this spring/summer. Well my dually in my sig as well as my dad's OBS psd. I used an AirDog and Walbro pump on mine. On dad's I put a 10 micron water sep/fuel filter between the tanks and stock SD pump.

My walbro has been on for 14K miles now and no issues. Pressure holds constant at 65psi where my reg is set at. I'm not running a chip though so not too much hp yet. Like big_stroker, I also carry a spare Walbro in the tool box just in case.

My dad's w/ stock SD pump is holding up well too. 10K plus miles on the conversion so that puts about 100K total on the pump. He's running the same setup as me except he's got a BTS trans to support the power with the chip. Only see 2 to 3 psi drop at WOT.

I got truck stuff...

Re: Going to do ele fuel, SD pump alternatives.

OBS, That's good info.

My semi has a single filter w/a petcock in the bottom. Will that work for H2O and debris filter?

Also, is the Fuel heater neccesary or a conveinience?

Re: Going to do ele fuel, SD pump alternatives.

Yes, that is the same kind of filter as your semi has. I used a Baldwin BF1212 for the "pre-pump" filter. Its a fuel filter and water sep in one. Has the petcock on the bottom.

No the fuel heater isn't neccessary. I haven't had one up here in Montana for coming on 2 years with no issues on 2 different pickups. My dad's truck that I talked about above is in Kansas with no issues either. Matter of fact, he unplugged the factory heater in the bowl last winter and didn't have any issues. He used to live in western Kansas, now he's outside of Wichita.
