Re: Fuel Pump failure

Tim, I'm beginning to think and the hose that you're having trouble locating is actually the 'breather" hose. The aftermarket fuel pump that I installed does not require that hose, so I removed it and set it in the workshop. The Gates 27093 hose from Amazon is for fuel output and might have a differ...

Re: 94 gl 1500i fuel pump

DenverWinger is 100% correct about the fuel pump, (great info 'ol friend). I went through the fuel pump "adventure" a few years back and had no problem with the fuel hose. Check out the Gates #27093 at Amazon for the right hose. I ordered 12" and used about 11 1/2" of it. It is still working flawles...

Re: Does anybody have a source for a used 93 ECM?

Do a "search" for motorcycle dismantlers and/or motorcycle salvage locations in your area/state. Many of them belong to a "network" where you post the part number of the item you're looking for and it gets sent to all of them. If one has the item, they'll email you with a price. It has worked for me...

Re: 88 fuel pump electrical troubleshooting

Because almost every aftermarket pump will give excessive gpm's and higher pressure can cause other problems, , which pump are you planning on buying? Almost every pump make/model has been tried, , ,let us know so someone with the same pump could give you ideas or tips on how their conversion worked.

Re: 88 fuel pump electrical troubleshooting

A few of us who've needed to replace old (25-30 yr old) fuel pumps have gone with the NAPA/Carter #P72190 which has worked well. A significant money savings over some others was a welcome benefit. Use the "search" feature for "aftermarket fuel pump" or something like that and you'll find many great ...

Re: 88 fuel pump electrical troubleshooting

The '88 and '89 models have a Fuel Pump Relay (under the truck near the BAS sensor) which will "prime" the fuel pump/fuel circuit for a 1-2 second spurt of fuel as soon as you turn the key to the ON position. The fuel pump relay could be bad, , but your troubleshooting of the pump by disconnecting t...

These are very rare and thus, the Unobtainium name applies.
