I've always used Accusumps in all my track cars. Never a single issue with one.

Hey Buddy,

Friend and bought ours about 12 years ago and still work great.
We went with the marine / turbo version for naturally aspirated engines and his are blower engines.

Reason for going with the marine/ turbo version is the pump runs a post cycle too,..........so you turn the key and it brings it to full pressure,......start it run it and go where ever....

Soon as you shut the engine off the post cycle automatically starts and pumps oil through all your hot bearings. You can set the computer for the post cycle with I think 3 options of how long to run on the post cycle.

Nice pump very heavy duty,........quick connect so you can drain the oil pretty fast too for normal maintance.

Boat engines suffer a lot of dry starts which scuff off metal from cylinder walls and other critical areas. A preluber will extend the life of your expensive marine engine;

I bought the KE Pre lubers, A little pricey $700.00 each but a good feeling when to here the pumps start bogging down when the engines are primed.

What I like the most about this system they give you a quick disconnect fittings and a extra hose to pump out the oil when you service the engines. Stick the hose in a 5 gallon bucket and flip the switch and the pump sucks it right out.

My KE 675's have the pre-lube system installed. Flip a switch & oil pressure prior to turning the engine over. Use the same pump to change the oil!!!!!!

What he said. I was planning on designing/building/installing a "timer panel" for pre-post use. After seeing this product, why re-invent the wheel? Nice find guys, thank you.
