Thread: SpecialTAuto "Integrated" Fuel Pump

  1. #21
    Just a worry in that the unit is 'sprung' and is pushing up against the rubber mount all the time. On Johns website it clearly shows a much better mounting (similar to the DMCH one) so this would I'm sure be a better option.
    On my car the black clip does not touch the access panel, may be different on others though!

    I ended up putting another clamp around the top of the rubber mounting, this has made the pump a much more secure and tighter fit. Not the prettiest but it's much more secure. I spoke to John earlier and have suggested he supply the pumps with longer (about 36") fuel pipes to enable fitting like I have done. Anyway filled it to the top with fuel roadtested and no leaks!

    So... still a one-man operation.

    Glad you have a positive experience! Looks like a nice unit.
    DeLorean status: awaiting engine replacement.

    right now I'm restoring a DeLorean with automatic transmission
    the owner of this car buy some products from specialtauto without consulting me first.
    in the past I have had personal conflicts with john hervey and even accuse me of thief without any evidence.
    and for several years did not sell parts to Puerto Rico.
    trust me I do not need specialtauto and low quality parts.
    I'll give you an example:

    gas pump is identical to herko brand and is located in Florida and using ebay to sell at low prices
    This is the Herko company ebay link: http://www.ebay.com/usr/e-herko?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
    the pump is used for suburban and yukon 2002-2004 the model is herko 131ge for only $52 dollars
    this is the link of ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Premium-...NW6YiF&vxp=mtr

    Picture 020.jpgPicture 010.jpgPicture 011.jpgPicture 016.jpgPicture 017.jpgPicture 018.jpgPicture 019.jpg

    pump pressure barely reaches 65 psi, the metal cap of the pump is not stainless steel
    only has rustproofing.
    the rubber seal is not used in the auto industry, It is used as a seal for outdoor lamps
    to make them moisture-proof.
    you can clearly see the brand and model of the seal used here:

    the seal barely holds the pump and is not moisture-proof
    if it rains the tank is contaminated with high humidity causing damage to the fuel system

    Picture 026.jpgPicture 021.jpgPicture 023.jpg

    I hate to say these vendors in their desperation to sell something
    They invent any product regardless of quality as it affects the buyer
    which in this case is the owner of a DeLorean.

    After I bought my pump from Hervey, I bought a second one from Herko. Some how the unit Herko Provided was a Bosch part. The Pump I received from Herko had that inner seal. That was missing from the Hervey pump. It may be an unconventional set up, but it's better then having all those rubber parts in the gas tank. The pump is holding up so far. I did source the correct GM plug for the 12v power. I wasn't happy with the plug Hervey included. You can also get the pump from RockAuto.

    It is incredible in less than 5 days
    herko increase the value of the model 131ge pump $ 52 to $ 104
    but there are other equally good alternatives:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/222069168132...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    for only $39.99

    integrated pump sell by specialtauto only develops 65 psi
    It should be at least 100 psi
