Default Facet fuel pumps.... thoughts

ive had 2 Carter M2211's in the last 6 weeks brand new out of the box.. recommeded for a stud-breaker 259/289

niether one's actuator arm could be bothered reaching the cam lobe ( there is one i checked).. SBC fuel pump blanking plate fits perfect on the stude..

now looking at a Facet FEP12SV -electric - ive read Holleys are noisy-

anyone using one of these . like em or loathe em ??

When you are dead, it is only difficult for others.
when you are stupid its the same

the greatest victory is to live

Been using them for years, I love them! LOTS quieter than a rotary pump like the Holley or Carter. I've used them on lawnmowers, ac generators, a diesel apu on a truck, and several on my cars and pickups. They have never had a problem keeping up with 300 HP, which is about what I estimate my last 302 had. Oh, I forgot, have one on a E350 based motorhome with a 460 cu in engine with a 4bbl, keeps up just fine.

I always try to mount them lower than the tank if I can, that way they don't have to pull as hard, although I have mounted a couple at or above tank level and they did just fine as well. Another good thing is they are pressure rated, low pressure 2-4lbs, higher ones go 4 lbs to about 6 lbs.

Like any other electric pump, if you do a lot of driving you might want to keep a spare in the trunk or glovebox. I know I've gotten 4-5 years service out of them, maybe more.

A friend of mine has ran one on his 41 Chevy for the past 3 Years without any failures.
As inexpensive as they are, I think I'd do what Bama suggested. Like a spare tire.
