I'm a little lost as to why I'd want an external fuel pump. Is it a replacement so you don't have to drop the fuel tank? I had to drop mine. Not because of the pump but due to the generator fuel line cracking. It was a job to say the least. I thought about sticking in a new pump while it was out but decided if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Interesting how people think. I plan on purposely dropping my tank and replacing my perfectly good pump (and generator line) this fall. Why? I would rather do it on my terms than someone else's. Nothing wrong with your philosophy. To each their own.

Yes, to avoid dropping the tank
Pump was dying, causing lots of engine run problems from lack of fuel to the engine

I thought that may be the case. I dropped mine in my garage with two floor jacks, air tools and good lighting. It was a job. My tank was half full and it took all of the morning and part of the afternoon to get the fuel pumped out using the generator pump that I hotwired. Filled all my cars and all my gas cans. Mine was designed so the back jacks were in the way of one of the straps. That sucked.

Be sure and look at that generator fuel line. Like I said, mine was cracked from the generator all the way to the top of the tank. I could have spliced it but that would have left about a foot of old line on top of the tank so I pulled it down and replaced it all.

I owned an auto repair shop for years and have replaced countless fuel pumps. Just because it's new, doesn't mean it's good. Trust me. I've put brand new pumps in and they were defective. With that said,,, If I were doing it just because mine had some miles on it, I'd be sure and get a factory one. Aftermarket ones are junk.

PS: Use good quality stainless hose clamps on the generator hose.
