I read a nasty thread on drag racing forum that you can't buy rebuild parts for his fuel pumps. You had to send the pump back to have it rebuilt. Most guys were livid about this. A BG rep came onto the thread and tried to defend this practice by saying it was for safety reasons, because of the dangers of fuel and fires. They pretty much ripped this guy to shreads, just like some of the OSO hounds do here. One drag racer said...I built my Mustang from the ground up that goes 0-200 mph in the quarter and I can't rebuild a fuel pump????
Guys were complaing about having to have a spare pump in the trailer, then if one failed you would have to send it off and the turn around time sucked. The only way to be safe at the track was to own three. One on the car, one in the trailer, and one sent off being rebuilt.
You were screwed if you ran two pumps ...
I have a BG400 in the hot rod and after reading that thread I wasn't going to have it fixed when it failed, I would have shopped for another brand. My boat has a mallory marine pump and I put brushes in it last year, just as a precaution because it had 200 hrs on it.
and they aint worth a Ch!t now
