Q. HOW CAN I LOCATE THE PART NUMBER FOR MY METAL FACET CUBE OR FACET CYLINDER PUMP?
A. The Facet part number is stamped into the metal on the upper side of the mounting feet across the bolt holes. Can't see it? If it is a genuine Facet pump it will be there. You may need to remove the pump from its mounting, clean it up and hold up the pump up to the light to see it.
Q. HOW SHOULD THREADS BE TIGHTENED?
A. Most fuel products use tapered threads. Care must be taken not to over-tighten. Finger-tighten only.
Q. DO I NEED TO SEAL UNIONS ON MY FACET PUMP/FUEL REGULATOR/FUEL GAUGE?
A. Yes, bare metal to metal threads always need sealing on fuel products. There are many thread sealants available with PFTE plumbers tape being most popular on low pressure units and our own recommendation being Loctite 243. For gauges we suggest sticking with PFTE tape for easy remove/refit purposes.
Q. I HAVE PURCHASED A WALBRO PUMP SO WHY IS IT IN SYTEC PACKAGING
A. FSE Sytec are the European distributors for USA Walbro. We are approved FSE dealers and hence authorised to sell Walbro pumps. Some of the latest high flow pumps carry the Ti Automotive name rather than the old Walbro stamp. Walbro is a brand owned by Ti Automotive.
Q. I HAVE PURCHASED A WALBRO PUMP SO WHY IS STAMPED TI AUTOMOTIVE
A. Walbro is a brand owned by Ti Automotive. All Walbro pumps used to carry the distinctive Walbro W logo. Ti Automotive are re-branding the Walbro range and many now carry the Ti logo instead. Your pump is still 100% genuine USA Walbro.
Q., HOW SHOULD FACET CUBE / POSI-FLOW PUMPS BE MOUNTED.
A., The pump should be mounted very close to the fuel tank and no more than 12 vertical inches from the fluid level. If you can gravity feed the pump then better still.
Q., WHERE CAN I GET AN OIL PRESSURE SWITCH
A., Facet instructions for Solid State Fuel Pumps recommends installing an oil-pressure switch. This switch has been discontinued and Facet now recommend that when you install a Facet pump on a vehicle use a source that is controlled by the ignition switch so power is cut off when the engine is off.
Q. DO I NEED TO FIT A NEW FILTER DURING INSTALLATION OF MY EXTERNAL FUEL PUMP?
A. Yes, it is important to fit a brand new, good quality pre-filter when changing your fuel pump. Contamination is the biggest killer of fuel pumps, this is particularly true of fuel injection pumps. We offer a range of in-line fuel filters suitable for carburettor and high pressure injection pumps.
