Recommended Posts

I have a iveco van diesel and the lift pump is playing up i have found a supplier with new genuine bosh and it looks the same as the turbo pump does anyone know if it would be suitable for petrol are they the same as it is a geared pump it is cheep half the price of lotus specialist supplied one thought it would be worth while to get a spare as it is a good price.

Andy - What do you mean its a geared pump?   It should be a reciprocating pump.   There are various capacities and pressures all using the same style body.  I suspect an Iveco van may not deliver the required pressure.   After much cross referencing, I paid less than £30 from ebay for a Jag 5.3 unit.   Its been absolutely fine.   Unfortunately I don't seem to have retained my details, but search ebay for Jaguar 5.3 fuel pump for an example.

I thought it was a pair of gears which pumped the fuel never been inside one. Hence the question thanks for the reply if the van one packs up altogether i will get the guts out to have a look what makes it tick thanks for the heads up on the Jag one.

Yes it would be on the Turbo. Reciprocating pump on NA cars.

 

Those pumps always amaze me, the way the entire pump including the armature and brushes are immersed in fuel. Whoever first came up with that design must have been very brave when he presented it to his bosses!
