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;
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.

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?
