Which brand did you use?

I just did the quick math and I think this was my 5th year on the 2065. Gotta be 400 hours or so. Still going strong!

I put an airtex in about 1 1/2 yrs ago and it only lasted about 15hrs. I replaced it with a spare my buddy had for the rest of the season and didn't have any issues. However over that winter i replaced it with a Walbro. 30-40 hrs on it so far with no issues. We also cut open the airtex and compared it with the original Carter and the pump mechanism in the Carter actually looked beefier. Don't know what the Walbro looks like yet, it may not be any better. We'll see. :-)

If I'm not mistaken, the AC Delco pumps are made by Walbro. Do you know which Walbro you used?

Guys, my fuel pump went out on my 2007 X-15 (MCX) at around midnight leaving wing night at Sequoya marina on Norris lake last weekend.... Needless to say we were camping on an island that night so you can imagine how much of a pain in the *** this ended up being.

I've been reading a lot about the carter pumps and I am appalled by the issues with them considering how much they cost. I am going to go with the e2044 pump. I take it this pump will not just be a plug and play pump.... How difficult is it to retro fit this thing? Does anyone have the link to the tutorial? I can't seem to find it.

It was a very easy swap. As I stated in another post, somewhere, removing the reinstalling all the mounting screws took more time. Almost seemed too easy. Not a hiccup yet with the 2044.

Has anyone tried the Bosch 69118 fuel pump yet? Cost approx twice as much as the Airtex 2044 and you have to get the strainer separately (#68014 and whoa, that's one heck of a strainer), but it's Bosch. I've had great luck with Bosch pumps over the years, so just wondering.
