Alternate Fuel Pump - Owners Manual Specs

I have a 95 LT1 and have been looking for a replacement fuel pump. My Owners Manual says my LT-1 requires 30-45 PSI. If the P60987 goes up to 35 PSI - seems like this should work just fine until the inlet screen gets clogged
For $32 probably worth a try. Maybe the high-pressure P60962 is for those who never do preventive maintenance

Talked with Carter Pumps technical support - they say the P60987 is rated 40-57 PSI/40-65 gall/hour (too strong for carbs) and the P60962 is rated 60-120 PSI/44-63 gall/hour. Given the LT-1 specification in the owners manual says required pressure is 30-45 PSI, it would seem to me that both pumps "should work" just fine; but I don't claim to be an expert just working with the data? Thoughts?

Cool - so now I have two pumps on order with expedite on the $32. When I get my awesome machine running again I will follow up on this thread to let you know the results. If it works, I am ordering a spare, or two :-)

I ran a napa 3003 filter just before pump to keep inlet clean... filter on right has about 50 hours on it..

I like this idea. It appears as though the PSI loss would be minimal, if any, by adding this filter in-line between the tank and pump as it looks to be a direct, low resistance pass through (one thread says you can blow through the filter with no resistance). My fuel pump inlet screen did have about a 40% debris blockage when I looked at it. I will pick one up!

I like it because I don't want to be messing with those brass fittings...one improper turn and time for new fittings.. I use to clamps and always check for leaks... never had one... and no loss is power.. plus I don't have to replace the other filter as often - I may change the big can filter after next season since I change it last in 2012 when I added the see thru in line filter.
