07 1100 Silverado
Started up fine as usual, ran a couple mins, then started to sputter and die. Tried to start after that and would try but never catch.
Having run out of gas on my first bike (oops) and had fuel pumps go bad in cars, it really seemed like it.
Per the manual I checked the resistance at the switch - shows an open (not the expected 1-2ohms) and when 12v is applied directly - nothing. Finally I bypassed the pump and went direct to the carbs - started up no problem.
So.... looking around I see many lower priced aftermarket pumps that look ~nearly~ the same and I'm wondering if anyone has used these instead of the OEM $150(!!!) model?
I would have to change the connector end which is simple enough, but what about the vacuum port on the replacement? The original doesn't have that.
If you used one like this, did it work for you?
