EXTREME SERIES HIGH VOLUME CHROME MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP FOR SBC CHEVY ENGINES. 150 GPH

 photo 5983_1_sbl.jpg  photo 58b2_1_sbl.jpg

This fuel pump is the ideal size for most street/strip applications. It is what we recommend with most of the engine buildups we sell.

Fits most all SBC small block Chevy engines requiring a mechanical fuel pump.

The chrome finish is fair at best. The pictures above were shot with a flash, and tend to make the chrome plating look slightly better than it actually is. Rest assured that most, if not all, the other brands of chrome plated fuel pumps will have no better finish on them, and we have certainly seen worse. The less than perfect finish should not reflect on the quality of the fuel pump. We find these pumps to be of very good mechanical quality, and function perfectly as they should. Our return rate is less than 1 per every 200 sold.

We strongly recommend the use of a new fuel pump rod. Any amount of wear on the fuel pump rod ends can adversely affect the performance of a new fuel pump, and also create excessive wear on the fuel pump lever. See our other listings for many fuel system related items.

1/4" NTP inlets and outlet.

  • High Output Fuel Flow
  • Shutoff Pressure Pre-set 8.0 PSI

  • Heavy Duty Construction For Continuous High RPM Operation
  • Fuel Body Casting Can Be Rotated to Accommodate Various Plumbing Situations
  • Inlet & Outlet Tapped For 1/4" NPT
  • RETAIL VALUE OF $69.95

    This fuel pump has a lifetime warranty, and we will back it up 100% regardless of what type use or mileage. This pump is heavy duty rated for street, strip, or off road use.

    Extreme series fuel pump for most all small block Chevy engines. 150 gallon volume at 6 psi. At wide open throttle, this pump may run a max pressure of 7-8 psi. This is the fuel pump you want for high hp street or strip applications from 200-450 hp. The fuel demands under wide open throttle on an engine are very high, especially those with large cfm carbs. Never would you want to run a stock fuel pump on an engine that has been built up to any degree. Remember, most stock Chevy engines produced around 180-210 hp. The OEM style fuel pumps were designed to accommodate a very low fuel demand.

    Fuel pressure should be regulated to between 5 and 6 psi for normal driving. Off-roading might require less pressure, while all out drag racing might require 6-8 psi. Too much fuel pressure can cause the carb to run rich at low speeds, while too little fuel pressure might cause the carb to run lean during high engine speeds and loads. It is our recommendation that you run a fuel pressure regulator and gauge to set the pressure where it needs to be. The regulator will keep the pressure much more consistent, and eliminate problems caused by too much or too little pressure. See our other listings for many accessories related to this item.

    You will hardly ever see a well built street rod not running a pressure regulator. You may not need it with this pump, but it is highly recommended. See our other listings for many fuel pump related accessories.

    FITTINGS ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH THIS PUMP. FEW IF ANY FUEL PUMP WILL INCLUDE FITTINGS, AS THERE ARE SO MANY VARIABLES WHEN INSTALLING.

    If your engine now has an OEM stock fuel pump on it, and it is very close to the frame rail, be sure you have clearance before purchasing this pump. The Extreme series fuel pump is slightly larger than the OEM stock pump. Most of the size increase is in the height and very little difference in diameter. We have seen some applications where the OEM fuel pump is less than an inch from the frame rails. Most vehicles will have over an inch in all directions and this fuel pump is not a problem.

    The fuel pump gasket is included.

    PART NO. 1003-C

    THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DELIVER FUEL WHEN FUEL DEMANDS ARE HIGH. YOU NEVER WANT TO RUN A STANDARD VOLUME PUMP WHEN RUNNING A LARGE CARB OR WHEN FUEL DEMANDS ARE HIGH, SUCH AS LONG UPHILL DRIVING UNDER A HEAVY LOAD. STARVING THE ENGINE FOR FUEL CAN RESULT IN A LEAN CONDITION WHICH IS VERY HARD ON THE ENGINE, NOT TO MENTION CAUSING A LOSS OF POWER.

    The chrome plating on this fuel pump is certainly better than most others we have seen. It's not perfect but much higher quality. Beware of most other chrome fuel pumps selling for less than this, and possibly more. We are very familiar with those pumps, and they have a much smaller diaphragm, and the chrome finish is horrible. They may rate theirs at some outrageous gph number, but rest assured it is a false rating. The tell tale on those pumps is a green gasket. Our chrome finish on our fuel pump is for sure a better quality, not to mention the internal function quality. This is why this product is has a lifetime warranty.

    ALSO SUITABLE FOR EVERY DAY STREET DRIVING.

    THE THREAD SIZE IS 1/4" NTP.

    CHROME PLATED FINISH

    Lifetime warranty, street or strip use. If it fails we will replace it.
