Saturday it sputtered all the way home, today it doesn't run at all. I check power, ground and pulled the heat shrink to make sure a wire to a resistor wasn't broke. This pump was installed in July of 08. I sent an email to Fuelab and I'll keep everyone posted. I hope these aren't going to have the same life span as the A1000's.
41403-c Fuel Pump
So far I think mine's outlived the best time I ever got from an A-1000 by about 3 times over.
It may be on it's last leg for all I know, but hell, it's already won this battle IMO.
As for this:
:shrug:Charles only talks about how much he drives. My truck has to go every day. It's so bad where I live I can't even get it towed.
I'm scratching my head here... because we both know that my truck is my sole daily driver and that it goes to work every Monday - Friday non-stop...
There's about a .000001% chance that I don't have some multiple of times more hours on this pump than you do that one.
For reference purposes.... what's your odometer reading these days?
But why the bs dig?
Oh, and if you actually want to talk to someone who knows what's up, you talk to the engineer, Ron. He designed the damn thing. That's the guy I worked with briefly on the control circuit when these things first came out and Lott got me one. Actually, it may have been before they actually "came out", can't remember. Anyway, since it's a brushless motor, the chances that you wore it out aren't likely. As was stated above, you likely had either a PCB component issue, or a problem with the external circuit where the "rat that swallowed a mouse" wires broke a contact on a resistor/cap or similar.
The first thing I would have checked after I verified power to the main leads was whether or not I had a good signal voltage to the speed control circuit. If so, you would know it was a board issue, if not, then you could have probably fixed the problem for ~ $0.01 worth of solder or ~$0.25 and a trip to the local electronics supply store to pick up a new resistor/cap or similar.
