I have three of the in-tank M151A1 fuel pumps, part number 10950785. Question I have is how do I test them? I can’t really sell them if I can’t verify operability. I’ve checked the various TM’s with no luck. Depending on your TM copy, it’s in figure 21, item 10 of TM9-2320-218-34P dated 15 November 1988.

If you hook them up to the 24v for a few seconds dry they should make a rattling noise. They are not complicated inside. There is a little ball that is moved up and down that pushes the fuel.

I would like to buy one if you're selling. Mike @ 740-475-7372 henderlym@yahoo.com

The prices of these pumps are crazy! $650.00 +/- a buck or two! That’s nuts! So, with that in mind, $250.00 each. I tested them and both work. I don’t know if they are NOS or gently used. Let me know what you think.
Sounds good, I'll take one. Let me know where to send the money. My address is: Charles M. Henderly, 10903 Avalon Road NE, Bremen, OH 43107

Gentlemen, it's a REALLY bad idea to post your phone number in plain sight on a forum. I recommend you both delete that number. Private messaging is a much safer way to exchange phone numbers.

How do you put 24 volts to it? I have one to test
I have several trucks, most are 24 volt. Take a wire, attach it to the left battery negative terminal. Get a second wire, attach it to the right positive terminal. Attach the positive wire to the pump wire. Using the left wire, touch it to the case of the pump. It’ll kick over if it’s at least marginally intact. I’ve used this to test several components. Got zapped a few times as well. I take no responsibility if you get zapped. It’s one of those “try by doing” events.
Good luck
