Fuel pumps 201....the redesigned module.

If you have the Millenium module with the SINGLE pump, this thread is NOT for you....go to the fuel pump 101 thread....

Sometime around 2010 or 2011, MC or indmar (whoever!) switched to a Millennium fuel pump module with 2 fuel pumps that are tee'd together in the module. (I assume that was so that when 1 of them invariably died, you still had SOME fuel pressure to get you back to shore.)

Unfortunately, they also changed the actual fuel pump inside the module. It is made by Bosch and the model number is 0580453604. The problem is that the cross reference information is proprietary and bosch wont disclose that information.

My 2010 x25 is now on its second or third fuel pump repair at 248 hours. The millenium module is $700 or so. The airtex E2044 pump is the white top. The new Bosch is with the maroon connectors. They arent even close to fitting.

None of the auto parts stores cross reference to the Bosch part number. Not even Bosch's website lists it as a part number.

Fortunately, ive spent my saturday morning unable to ride and not very happy about it. Ive channeled my anger for the greater good, and have found compatible pumps.

I rebuilt mine with the AIRTEX E8229. Ive driven and tested it for about 1.5 hours and it is fixed.

I believe there are other compatible pumps that MAY work as well. P72192 by carter. EP458 by delco. I havent tried them specifically, but i believe they would suffice.

The airtex E8229 top is black though...fyi.
This shows the bosch oem new style on bottom and the old single pump airtex on top. Obviously not compatible.

Bump to see if there is any update to this thread or if anyone else has experienced rebuilding the Millennium dual pump modules. I replaced my Carter with a Millennium this year for a hefty sum and would like to not revisit that if possible with a cheaper rebuild kit.

From the outside it looks a lot like a Bosch FP-998. It's listed as 3 bar which converts to 43 ish psi. Has anyone tried that one?

Just bought a Millennium pump from MCPartsDepot in September of last year (16). I have about 20 hours on the boat and I keep intermittently losing my fuel pump. The boat will just shut down with no warning or pattern. I place my hand on top of the pump and it doesn't appear to be running, so I check the voltage at the connector. With the key on, I have 12v at the white AND green wires, but no running fuel pump. Keep cycling the key and eventually it'll work again. Any thoughts? MCPartsDepot was of no help at all. What's the green wire for?

Pretty sure you have a single pump module. Go to the "Fuel Pump 101" thread.

Since you recently replaced the pump I would replace your fuel pump relay (cheap) and try again. If problem persists I would replace the pump (not the whole module) for much less money.

I took it out shortly after. It's the 2 pump module. Part number 155215 at MC Parts Depot. You think its still the relay? I Get voltage at the connector, but the pump won't run.

I'm in favor of replacing the pump (only) as well, but reading above, it doesn't sound like anyone has been successful.

Has anyone run an aftermarket in-line pump and used the factory in-tank pump as a pickup with a regulator?

How have these dual pump modules from Millennium been holding up? Are they better than the originals? Is it worth switching to the dual pump to avoid all this pump replacement? I've rebuilt my single pump setup 3 times, and it gets tiring wondering when the next time it is going to fail.
