Trying to Identify Brand and Model of This Fuel / Lift Pump

The picture below is of an electronic lift pump that is installed after a Racor 500fg filter. We have a Yanmar 3GM30F. The boat was built in 1989 and I expect the pump may be of the same vintage.

Is this same pump still available for purchase? If not, what would be a suitable replacement?

(Note - so noone comments on the empty bowl of the Racor, I cleaned it out and replaced the filter element, and just haven't refilled it yet.)

Tom.

TK, Give Chris at Simms Diesel Penrose Akld a call 09 5791159. They have a good range of electric pumps made in the US and marine pumps that meet US Cguard specs.

Thank you W, though I'd hoped to find something closer to home. (Northeast USA).

Through some more searching last night I came across some pumps made by Walbro. I sent the photo to them and they believe the pump may have been a Walbro model 2401. They suggested the Walbro FRB-13 as a suitable replacement. The last one was reliable for 20 years, so I'm going with their suggestion. I'll post a follow up once it is installed for closure of this thread, though I welcome comments about experiences with these pumps.

Tom.

Looks like a generic fuel pump - even the bracket. Should be readily available at any auto or truck parts house. Take it with you.

Looks similar to an old AC-Delco

all 3 of the big name auto parts stores in the US. Advanced, Auto Zone and O'Rileys have a small 12v diesel lift pump from Crane or Mr. Gasket for about $80
