cheap electric fuel pump?

Buddy is putting a 305 in his 81 4x4 and 305 is from a tbi truck so he put a edelbrock intake and reg carb on it. I bought a electric fuel pump about 2 yrs ago for my 79 Suzuki LJ80 and it was somewhere between $40-60 and will crawl under it today to see if it has a brand name on it. Lordco has a carter for $100.80 taxes in where you can mount anywhere. The one for my LJ I mounted by tank as thats what it said to do. So anyone knowwhere I( can buy a cheaper one, like brand and part # would be cool or a place I can order off the internet? Even buy a used one too that works... feel free to text me at 250-706-0655...

Corey

PS been off internet since January so finally got internet up and running at new place so thats why I been a post whore . Glad to be back...

Do not under any circumstances buy the Carter they are crap from day one , that cheap one you are talking about is probably a Mr Gasket not a very good one , I would recommend a Holley Blue with regulator are about $110 and they will never let you down out in the bush.

Don't try to save money when buying a fuel pump. Buy an Aeromotive pump and be done with it.

Fuel pumps are usually designed to push fuel not suck it. It's best to mount it as close to the tank and slightly below so that the pump is gravity fed. Don't forget to put a filter before the pump you don't want any crap that may be in your tank going throughyour pump.
