    How did you stretch the input line, it's tight with the OE cube pump. Have any pictures?

    802-803 fuel pump

    The square pump fittings do swap, but the overall length now (90-pump-45) is increased by 1-5/8" , the hard line can connect but now the input line is a tight stretch to reconnect.

    802-803 fuel pump

    The Cube Faccett, reuse the 90 & 45 on E8135. I've done a Cube to E1074 replacement, but not the E8135. Thought someone recently did but can't find the thread.

    802-803 fuel pump

    Generator purchase assistance needed SouthEast 10kW

    Where are you located, I'm in Summerfield Florida. From what I've seen at auction lately, were pretty beat up and high prices and far from southeast. Jimmy has good units at fair prices. Perhaps he would part with one of those 003s that need work. I'd be willing to help you fix it up, I'm...
