Universal M25 Diesel Fuel Pump
 
I have a Catalina 30 with a Universal M-25 Diesel engine. The fuel pump is bad and after checking on the price of a new pump I was quoted a price of $250. Is there an option of adding a different pump at a lower price? I'm seeing diesel fuel pumps at $49 on e-bay...would one of these work?

Thanks in advance...

There are a number of fuel pumps that will replace the old Facet, now Facet-Purolator, round style.
The Facet- Purolator pumps which will have some similar performance of the original Facet pump are the;

POSI-FLO Series - FEP-06SV / PRO-06SV,

CUBE Series - FEP-12SV / PRO-12SV,

Gold Flow Series - FEP-87SV / PRO-87SV.

You can buy many of these at: Facet Fuel Pumps

The Purolator cube models are very, very reliable. My 44 hp Westerbeke uses a PRO-42SV which runs $62.99 at the above link. Mine has over 3000 hours on it. The PRO-12SV (PUR-40106) which works well on M-25's etc. is only $43.99. The Gold Flow series is round like the original Universal/Facet pumps if that really matter to you. It can be found here: Facet Fuel Pumps - Facet Hi-Perf Fuel Pump 1/8 NPT Internal
