Re: Catalina 30 Universal 5411 fuel pump replacement
Thanks JimsCal. I checked my dipstick and does have Z-500 stamped on it. I called the Kubota dealer and they claim to have a mechanical pump for the Z-500 in stock for $61. I will go in and see if it really matches the 5411. I would still like to put an electic pump in as a back up and for bleeding the system. I see the facet 40106 has been recommended a lot. I would like to buy a pump locally but no one seems to carry facet. Does anyone know what specs I should ask for? The Facet pump is 12v, low pressure 4-7 psi, 32gph. Anything else important? I plan to run a line from the Racor to 12V electric pump and then from the 12V pump to mechanical pump. Rather than connecting wire to ignition I am thinking about installing a toggle in the engine compartment. Too often I forget to turn ignition off when anchoring or sailing. I am curious what happens if the pump stays on when the motor is not running?
