Hey Bob,

I had a Holley Red that bit the dust very early in its life and have since put on an Edelbrock. It's a nice pump but honestly I think that I will be putting on a set of Kennedy pumps. They're very quiet and deliver all the fuel one could need. It's all Tom puts on the trucks we do.

Just bought the Kennedy pump 100% flow through and no seals to leak. He is a member here and his customer service is primo! www.kennedydiesel.com

Tacojedbob,

Get the FASS system and be done with it, the Dodge guys found out exactly what you have, the gasoline pumps just do not last espeically in winter. Even in summer the viscosity of diesel is much different than gasoline and those pumps are not up to the task. Plus as injections pressures rise the filtration performance is critical, the FASS systems have a water seperator and filter as well as remove entrapped air in the diesel fuel for better injection efficiency too! They cost more than some other systems but once you see it, install it and use it you'll know why. If you have any questions on them let me know.

all i do is build a bypass for the holley pumps where you dont have to run them unless you need to. Build a bypass and get a toggle switch. i run low 12's with a 75$ lift pumpsetup.

I would really like to see your set-up. Maybe I just like hangin on to my money a little more than others, but 400-800 seems a little steep for a lift pump(s) even if its got all the bells and whistles. I'm really looking for function rather than cosmetics.

ill get you a picture up, most local hardware stores will have all the needed brass fittings, it actually very simple design, with it being cut on by toggle the pump life is raised tremendously. You can also get a procomp black(cheaper version than holley for about 40-60 bucks on ebay.you could safely build a setupone for under 100 $

i have a bypass plumed already, just havent got a valve for it...do i need one? or can i have that bypass open and the pump going? thanks for the advice!

you just need a check valve to keep the fuel from recirculating in your bypass.

i really dont think you need more of a lift pump setup than what i got, i can build 4or5 of mine to one thats the guys sell on here. Nothing against there setups but hey if it works for cheaper ill spend my money on other things.
