No more vac fuel pump issues...
Looking for something better than OEM with out spending a fortune...
I just finished up my electric pump conversion after the second vac fuel pump went out (2006 Rhino 660 carb model). After lots of searching and checking out/measuring many setups, I picked up a 12 volt inline sealed pump kit (3-5 psi), and an inline fuel filter from Napa that fits right in place of the stock pump with only minor lengthening of the mounting bracket holes on the pump (reused the OEM hardware). It is a 2 wire setup, black grounded with one of the mounting bolts and the red run with the OEM harness (zip tied in place when needed to keep it in place) to the battery box and spliced in to the wire indicated on the blue plug (loose in battery box, already fused, and powered when the key is on from OEM). Last thing to do is remove the factory vaccuum line that went to the stock pump and cap the nipple it went to on the intake. It took about an hour including removal of all the interior paneling as pictured.
Plumbed into original lines, it works like a champ for about $55. This makes for the ideal setup for any tank placement, and will support any mod as fuel will allways be available to the carb when needed but is low pressure using the OEM overflow to the tank returning any extra fuel not needed. When the key is off it cuts the fuel off from the tank...
With this setup, if the key is on fuel is no longer a problem... It could sit for a year with fuel sta-bil untouched on a battery tender. That first startup coming out of storage is just a matter turning the key.
What you'll need:
Fuel pump kit- PN 610-1052 (Napa Auto $46)
Inline Filter- Universal 5/16" ($3)
Fuel line clamps- 4 each 6/16" ($2)
Wire- About 10 feet ($1)
Zip ties- About 10 ($1)
Vac cap- ($.10 cents)
Wire connectors- 2 (.30 cents)
Fuel line- 1 foot of 5/16" (.60 cents)
Hope this helps,
