1987 manta gte 2litre fuel electronic fuel pump

Recommended Posts

Evening lads - I have a manta project - no fuel tank or pump - looking for a cheap electronic fuel pump that I can use to get the car mobile- getting too old to push it ( me and the car ) would this do the job linked to a temp fuel tank inside the car ? Cheers in advance

Yeah, but just remember it’s cheap for a reason. Decent 044 replacements are normally around £50 mark.

I am looking at fuel pumps and totally agree with Jessopia74. I am just biting the bullet and buying a Bosch one.

There are a lot of copy Bosch pumps around I payed nearly 100 for a genuine Bosch one from rally and competion last summer and it is very quiet compared to a surposed Bosch one I had of eBay for 45 quid that makes soon noise when asked to provide 3.5bar pressure hence y I changed it sounded like a strangled cat but still worked I didn’t want to chance my nice new forged pistons getting melted at 8000rpm when It gave up 🙂 

Best pumps are the original ones of manta Astra gtes nova gtes and cav gsi etc

Absolutely correct, for long term a genuine Bosch from reputable shop is the best option.

as John warns, be aware of cheap copy/fakes on eBay. Some even look very much like original, but if it’s too cheap rule applies. There are also reputable stores on eBay though, if in doubt ask here.
But there are some half decent alternatives, let’s call them clones, by other companies. But they do tend to be a little noisy in comparison.

Buying something really cheap to just get you started so you can move it about? Your going to need a good pump anyway, so buy a proper one now will save you long term.

I stick to Bosch.....although mine is an uprated version ....plus use a larger Jag XJ6 fuel filter which is a straight swop for Manta one, just need a larger jubillee clip to attach to bracket..

 

ps The standard pump is good for about  200bhp.. (50hp per injector).

Cheers lads - I’m not 100% sure if this project will ever get finished so for the time being a cheap one to get it mobile will suffice - I was more concerned with delivering enough fuel to get it idling - it won’t be going on the motorway anytime soon - thanks for all the advice - it’s good to have experts / enthusiasts at hand - hopefully it’ll get finished - if so it’ll get treat to a Bosch pump 👍
