    Any clue if this will work with an 003? My number 3 auxiliary pump died the other day. I am going to need a new one to keep from having to drag fuel to it.

    The 003 uses the older style round 24V Facet pumps. They are usually several available on fleebay.

    Here is where I bought new, back when I was supporting an 002 for my personal use: https://www.yachtsupplydepot.com/mec...rod_23449.html. This is the OEM unit, complete with EMI filter. Same price as I paid in 2016.

    For the primary pump you can use the E8135 and the older E1074 on an 002 and 003, you might just need to use a couple right angle fittings to have room for the hoses. You should probably only run 1 of them as I don't know if they are blow-through style in case 1 of them fails. Keep the spare in your parts inventory. Any 24V pump in the same approximate pressure range will work as long as you don't care about originality. All you're trying to do is provide fuel to the IP.
    The only thing I would avoid are the cheap import knock off pumps that look like the Airtex. They will work, but don't last very long.
    For the auxiliary pump it will work there as well, with the right fittings, but I don't know off hand what the advertised lift height is compared to the Facet pump.

    From the MEP-803A TM: Facet 40193 is main pump. Aux is Facet 40194. See attached docs for pump specifications.

    Facet Specs:
    40193 ....max pressure of 30psi at 10gph

    40194.... 5 - 6.5 psi at 23gph


    Airtex Specs:
    E8131.... 10-14psi at 35gph

    E8135.... 5.5-9psi at 35gph
    E8267.... 5-9psi at 30gph
    E1074.... 5.5 - 9 psi at 20gph (Summit Racing data: site says gpm)


    My MEP-802A came with the E1074 installed for both Primary and Aux. fuel pumps, so the E8135 or the E8267 look like the best choice for the MEP-8xx series of generators. I guess we need to get them while we can....I just ordered a spare E8135.

    Same pump is on Rock Auto for $27.79, but with that said... its called out for "large carbeurated Gas Engine" applications. I wonder if its diesel rated?

    Both GAS and DIESEL are checked on the application chart for that pump. The application specialist I talked to on the phone gave me that one as one of the options to replace the E1074.
