Re: EFI fuel pump longevity
The only reason I would consider using the used one, is the fact that I already have it. I actually have two of them. One I got when I thought it had died in my Trooper, but the problem turned out to be the wiring harness. So the old trooper pump, the same used for GM TBI systems is less than a year old. I also have a Land Rover pump that I mistakenly replaced. I was told by the salesman at the dealer that the regulator had been replaced in the Rover right before I bought it, so when I had fuel pressure problems, I immediately replaced the pump. Come to find out, the salesman lied, it was not the pump after all. I don't want to use the rover pump in the Jeep, I actually just want it for a spare for the rover. The Seafoam sounds like a good idea. I now know that both pumps were working when they were pulled, so I was just wondering if they live long after drying out. With mechanical pumps, I always replace them if they are dried out, but EFI pumps cost so much more I was just wondering if they could be reused or at the very least, kept for a spare. Unless I assemble my own EFI kit, I will look for a kit that includes the pump, and see if the old Trooper pump will work as a spare. And with the price, and sometimes limited availability, of Land Rover parts it never hurts to have a few spares around.
