As far as I know the aluminum pump is off a k341 and is original. The black pump is aftermarket and is what I'm seeing when I look at new ones. Are the rebuild kits interchangeable? Is one better than the other? I see prices all over the board for these.

Most kits no longer avail. There was once a fella making kits for them and had a site to show what was offered. There are a few diff gaskets, and three diff type arms used and they determine which style kit you needed. I know this came up in the Power King forum if you search and maybe others have the link saved. Seems it wasn't a tractor place at all, but some kind of antique car parts place that was offering these. Seems around $25?  Cmon guys, help me out here.

The place grumpy was talking about seems to have disappeared off the internet!  :wallbanging:

 

I have the guys phone number, I'll call tomorrow and see what happened to him.

Get a electric pump from kirk engines. Those kits are NLA as I've found, the pump he sells is great, it only runs at like 2 or 3 psi which is perfect. New mechanical pumps are extremely expensive, and electric ones are better in my opinion.

50$ for the pump from Kirk engines. I looked at them yesterday. I wondered about that option as well. Thanks for the link.

Kohler and Airtex pump rebuild kits are available from the place I linked to above.


50$ for the pump from Kirk engines.


Not to discourage supporting Kirk Engines, but if you're on a budget, low pressure fuel pumps are available lower than that. Mr Gasket sells a Facet made 2-3 psi pump that's available for $37 online and $42 at Advance Auto. Your local Napa store also carries a low psi pump in that price range. There are options even cheaper on EBay. I've been running a $20 generic EBay special pump on my GTX-18 for the last several years with no issues. I want to guess about 150 hours on it so far??

So any 2 psi pump will work? I've got two tractors needing fuel pumps.

Yes, I've bought this pump & having great service from it.  Just be SURE to place the filter BEFORE the pump, as even a small speck of crud can stick the piston in these pumps.

Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll go the electric pump route.

Just make sure the tractor's electrical system is up to it. The pumps won't draw much current but most GT charging systems don't have much extra capacity. On my GTX-18, if I have all four lights on, the pto coil on, and the cruise control coil on, the extra load of the pump puts it into discharge a little bit.
