Is there a way to convert over to plastic type fuel pump or a cheap alternative? I am not really wanting to pay around 100 bucks for a new fuel pump.

There are remote vacuum pulse pumps such as 708017 from NAPA. You need to have a vacuum hose connected to the crankcase to attach to it. A low pressure electric fuel pump may also work. Good Luck, Rick

 

This one is on epay right now. http://www.ebay.com/...=item4ac1d60b25

 

We used to get rebuilding kits for them.

 

This electric pump might work or it may be too high of pressure.   http://www.ebay.com/...0105db4&vxp=mtr

I found it at psep.biz for 40 dollars with tax and everything. That's about 55% percent than the regular price. They had one that was cheaper but i went with the OEM.

Gumby, thanks for that site.

 

I'm pretty sure I'm going to need a pump for the K482 in my 1886 and they have a pump for it at a pretty decent price.

It's going on a tiller with no battery. I thought about going the EFP way but I would have to install a battery just for it. The tiller doesn't have electric start.

Yeah, I just wanted to update this post. I actually had to buy a fuel pump for a Gravely and found it cheaper on eBay.

The pump was on the machine when I got it and it is actually a Purolator pump that looks exactly like the Facet pump except for the lable. The spec says 4-6 psi, I would guess that any in that range would work. I did see that the pump should be mounted as low as possible as the suction is not that strong.
