476087 Facet GOLD-FLO Silver Top Road Fuel Pump Kit
This is a full kit as required when converting a vehicle to this electric Facet Silver Top Road fuel pump:
The pump itself is suitable for engines of up to around 150 BHP.
- Flow rate 18 Gallons/hour / 68 liters/hour
- Pressure: 4.0 - 4.5 PSI / 0.275 - 0.31 Bar
- Dry prime height 12 inches / 0.6 Mtrs
- Pipe union thread size: 1/8 NPTF tapered thread
- 12 Volt negative earth
- Suitable for nearly all fuels, including modern ones, but NOT suited for Methanol
Please note: this concerns the pump body PLUS 2 silent blocks which will dampen vibrations, 2 x 8mm fuel unions, a spare filter and an earth wire, as depicted in the photographs.
Connection to pump body: 1/8" NPTF tapered thread
Thanks to its relatively low operating pressure of up to 4.5 PSI (some 0.3 Bar), the GOLD-FLO Silver Top Road pump usually does NOT require a pressure regulator but please check your system requirements to make sure.
A variety of pressure regulators can be found HERE.
Please use our superior quality PTFE tape each time that you (re-)assemble screwed connections in the fuel tract in order to properly seal the connection.
As an alternative, you can use our Loctite 542 Thread Sealant which will offer the added properties of protecting your connections from undoing themselves.
We strongly advise you to secure your fuel lines using our Stainless Steel Fuel Line Hose Clamps.
When using an electrical fuel pump, we also advise you to equip your vehicle with an Inertia Fuel Cut-Off Switch as a safety precaution.
This is Facet Pump Number 476087 which is stamped onto one of the brackets:
The bracket on the other side shows the operating voltage and polarity, in this case Neg. for "Negative Earth" and 12V for 12 Volt.
