Re: Fuel Pump DIY for $80 - Install in Pictures

I got the pump in the mail the next day after that post^ was surprised that it came so quickly.

In fact the old filter sock had partially come apart on the long side's seam. hadn't noticed it on install so who knows.

I am pretty content with their RMA process all things considered.

Re: 2.0 ore 2.5

a majority of the eta blocks had a big "2.7L" stamped in their casting on the side of the block. i don't remember which side off the top of my head

most 2.5's are blank and have a cam gear placed distributor. most 2.3/2.0 will have the older Dizzy like the earlier pre-motronic m20s.
