Re: Fuel pump died, I need to find a replacement - 12V2401

You have gasoline engines in the bilge of a boat. The pump you need was linked for you in post 6. If you exceed 8 psi it will leak.

Its a shame, but gone are the days when you could have taken the old pump into an autoparts store and asked for a replacement. The guys behind the counter would have taken a look and said, well, you need an XYZ... Nowadays, if you can't tell them the year and model of your vehicle, they and their computer can't help you.

Re: Fuel pump died, I need to find a replacement - 12V2401

Just for the OP's peace of mind. The Walbro FRD replacement is an on-demand pump with a deadhead pressure between 4.5 and 7 psig. That means it will turn itself on and off, and should never exceed an output pressure of 7 psig. Exactly what the doctor ordered for your situation.

I'm sure you could find others that do the same thing, including at Napa. Just need to dig through the specs. But, if the original pump worked well, and this is the manufacturer's replacement...

I definitely appreciate this. Thanks a lot for the confirmation. Now I can install this and be able to sleep at night

For a fuel assist going to the engine you do not want positive displacement.

Not sure about the exact relationship, but Walbro and Bellows are somehow related. Walbro suggests:

2401 Replacement Pump

as a replacement for the 2401

Is this the only website that sells this? I can't find it locally, or even online anywhere else. Just wondering if it goes by any other name/number.

Re: Fuel Pump Died - I Need to Find a Replacement - 12V2401

These will work safely

Low Pressure Fuel Pumps from Low Pressure Fuel Pumps Dot Com

3-5 psi will work fine.

EDIT: Do they have NAPA in Canada?

Re: Fuel Pump Died - I Need to Find a Replacement - 12V2401

The discontinued Walbro bellows pump (2401 model) puts out about 20 GPH @ 4 - 6 psi, and has been superseded by the Walbro FR Series Reciprocating Fuel Pump #FRA-1*.

* 12V, 20 gal/hr, 4.5-7.0 psi, continuous-duty, w/ two 5/16 hose barb fittings

Re: Fuel Pump Died - I Need to Find a Replacement - 12V2401

I got excited when I found this locally:
http://www.princessauto.com/all-seas...line-fuel-pump

However it's 5-9 psi :/
I'll keep looking locally because I want to get her out this weekend, if not, I'll just order online.

Re: Fuel Pump Died - I Need to Find a Replacement - 12V2401

I got a reply from management at Stewart Warner.
The current direct replacement for the 12V2401 is a 82089-A.

However, the Walbros that I ordered will do the exact same thing. Thanks everyone!

I am not sure. There is an electric pump motor encased in the steel housing.

Re: Fuel Pump Died - I Need to Find a Replacement - 12V2401

I WAS LOOKING UP MY WALBRO INFO AND BEING THAT THIS FORUM CAME UP, I LOOKED. THE SUBJECT WAS SOMEONE LOOKING FOR A WALBRO 12V2401. I HAVE A BRAND NEW (NOS) THAT HAS NEVER BEEN USED AND STILL HAS THE PAPER PLUGS IN THE FITTINGS. I ALSO HAVE A FOUR WINNS, BUT WOULD BE WILLING TO HELP OUT A FELLOW BOATER IF HE STILL NEEDS THE FUEL PUMP.
I DONT THINK IT WILL WORK FOR MY CHEVELLE BUILD ANYWAY. IF THE PST I AM RESPONDING TO IS VERY OLD,
NEVER MIND....
