Note: Facet fuel pumps are not FAA approved and are not intended for aircraft use.
These pumps measure less than 3" in any direction and weigh only 18 oz. Fuel is supplied as soon as the ignition is turned on so the engine will start faster at colder temps. Built-in pressure relief prevents flooding and assures fast re-starts on hottest days. The all-steel plated case is water tight. Mounts with two bolts. For best results, mount the pump close to the fuel tank and below the liquid level.
The tank is self-priming to 12" to 36" Lift min dry. Standard 12 V models require only 1 amp at max. delivery. Many models are available, but these are the ones recommended by Rutan Aircraft Factory, Stoddard Hamilton and many other aircraft designers. All of the pumps shown feature the all nylon valve and plunger as specified by Rutan Aircraft in the Canard Pusher newsletter.

40171 FACET SOLID STATE FUEL PUMP
Appears to be very good quality and functions very well. Im using it as a priming pump and backup to the original mechanical pump on a 1939 Mercury V8 engine, regulated to ~2 psi output.
Excellent low pressure back up pump on my Avid C with Rotax 582
As advertised and quick delivery
Excellent product, shipping on time. 100% recommended
Fit 07 Ktm superenduro with minor modifications
Use this pump as an addition to your fuel system. Great as a backup pump for two stroke Rotax engines and as a diagnostic tool for determining the integrity of a Mikuni pump
you did a good job and the price was competitive

The pump you ordered has 1/8" NPT threads, and the carbs use 1/4" fuel line. You'll want to use two brass nipples part number AN840-4, and whatever clamps you prefer.
Yes, you can use these pumps as the priming or lift pump, however you should choose the pump with enough GPH for your engine.
