I have a non fuctioning in tank booster pump. Anyone ever simple remove it and use a hose and screen?

Another question. Who sells a replacement booster pump?:confused:

Centerline or IAP sells them. You can also get them on ebay usually.

With the fuel outlet coming out the top of the tank, the supply pump cannot reliably generate enough suction to feed itself. The older style tanks without the boost pump had the outlet at the bottom of the tank which did provide a little pressure, but not much. This resulted in fuel starvation sometimes when the tank was low on fuel and making hard corners. Hence the change to putting in the in-tank boost pump.

Bottom line . . . you need to replace the boost pump.

Part of the month club

I will be replacing the booster pump as soon as it arrives from Centerline. So far I have replaced the Spica Pump, the TA, the injectors the primary fuel pump, all of the fuel line, pulled and cleaned the tank, replaced cap, rotor points wires and plugs. I have asked for and received countless hours of help from friendly Alfisti all over the country.

It will be a good running car in the end but I am starting to get looks from the wife when she see's the bills coming in. Yes, I am an Alfaholic and proud of it. I need no 12 step program, just 30 minutes in the winding roads of PA will do the trick!:D
