I couldnt agree with you more. My first pump..(wvo designs) was leaking at install. Gave them a call, and in 3days..(in CA), pump at door. Been work'n for 10k+ now. Dropshipped my other.

"from reading" threads/other forums...people have their opinions. Til now, i have no complaints. I figure, the $500 spent, thats 100 buks a year, with warranty. With all the r/d in these pumps, with the pricing, i figure, i was in good hands. A buddy of mine run'n wvo, also uses his oem ford pump, but he also carries a few spares as well. From what he's said/been thru, i didnt want to go that route. Now, what your say'n Jason, it leaves an "avenue" for if/when, knock on wood, theres an issue...but, i leave my d2 full, have a switch connected to my d2 pump, so if prob does arise, flip switch and back on road, unless not wvo related

The only people I know of having problems have too fine of a filter pre-pump. These pumps don't like that. The best way to use the PSD pumps is to have just a strainer/screen before the pump and loop the return, so you minimize the strain on the pump.

For $40ea, buy (2) and have a spare to run if ya need to use the warranty!

Ya Jay, just like everything else. Theirs the do-ers and dont do-ers. You read where, in this example...where they ran oem pumps, and fail miserably. Then theres yours' threads, where,...i'm glad i didnt spend the money, cuz my oem pumps are kick'n ****. Considering "this" source, i now wish i atleast gave an oem pump a shot. Hell, whats the worst case, 40 buks, but a warranty gives me a new one to re-try.

I dont see why you'd want a filter b4 the pump. Since, the extense of filtering that was done prior to filling up the wvo tank.

I'm re-doing my d2 side. Since the pump investment, i might as well utilize its working strength. Gonna tap into the d2 fuel line with a 3-way. Bring the line over to another 3-way, then to wvo pump. I want to run both sides off same pump, and leave my oem d2 pump alone for the if/when scenerio. I WANT MY 500 BUKS WORTH outta the pump.

CanadianBlake is starting off with a positive reputation.
Fair comments about the CV system.

Which Airtex pump did you use?

I can't see to get the vegistroke folks to return emails or calls. I'm assuming that's who Dave is?

I should be able to get the hoses and fittings through them right?

Its a stock-replacement pump from autozone/oriellys/etc.

Dave is veggiegarage.com - he is a dealer for BFT (Vegistroke) and stocks and sells parts for maintaining and 'upgrading' Vegistroke systems and a variety of conversions. He is a great guy and has QUALITY parts at reasonable prices.
