Aftermarket and newer type fuel pumps...

I was interested to know if any of you are using newer aftermarket fuel in-tank fuel pumps instead of OEM Motorcraft. Had one in front tank that I had installed and lasted 11 years and float crapped out but was still pumping some. Motorcraft pumps are pricey that's for sure. Just want to see what everyone else is using and if there's any way to install a Jegs, Aeromotive etc and if anyone is using this with 460 engines. Thanks guys!

Sub'd, needing a new fuel pump in my C350 at the minute, try'd 3 o'reilly pumps and an autozone pump. No love.

I installed an Airtex pump from Amazon in my '90 F-150 last year and haven't had any issues with it. I hope it lasts many more years, but only time will tell.

Replaced both fuel tanks and pump assemblies with Spectra 5+ years ago. No problems with either pumps or sending units.

I have almost always used Motorcraft fuel pumps in the past. With the price of them constantly going up, I just will not pay what they are asking for them as long as there is a decent alternative. I recently got a Spectra Premium complete assembly from Summit for 120 bucks for the front tank. Seems to be working fine. One thing worth noting is that the connections and screws etc should be checked before installing.

Replaced my sending unit with a Spectra brand from the auto parts store. It ran fine for a few days, then started giving me low fuel pressure issues. I found a small bit of metal in the filter, so I drained and dropped the tank again and replaced just the pump with a Delphi pump. Seems to be OK so far after a couple hundred miles, but I'm not convinced it's perfect. When the weather warms up a bit, I'm going to check fuel pressure again.

If this one is bad, I'm replacing everything with Motorcraft.

I just put a Delphi pump in our 5.0 Moutaineer and it seemed like a good part. Looked very similar to the Spectra Premium that I put in the F150. However, both were made in Chine though.
