Has anybody used an electric fuel pump in there Sprint/Swift, 1.0 3 cylinder. My fuel pump is a 3 line one . My manual fuel pump shaft has frozen in place.

Rockauto has one for $23.79.

AIRTEX E8016S
Electric Pump; Solenoid;12 volts; 2.5-4.5 PSI; 30 GHP; 5/16 hose; Import Passenger and Light Truck Carb One of our most popular parts
May Be Used As Replacement For 3 Line Mechanical Fuel Pump

Thanks for any help

Also if anyone has the current Rock Auto discount code

You may want to read my past post about airtex pumps. Now the above is mostly about mechanical but I also went through similar with electrical. If you choose to run a electric try anything but Airtex, and most part houses have others. You will also more than likely need to install a regulator, even most mechanical pumps sold now for Sprint applications put out too much pressure.

i was getting a needle flutter from 4-6 psi at idle and closer to 6 at high rpms.
the 86 sprint has a fuel cup in the gas tank for the uptake tube, i wonder how much they changed the fuel tank design from the mk1 to the mk2. ive been wanting to convert to a eletric fuel pump. i wonder if the intake fuel pump from the mk2 will mate up to the mk1. i got a clone bosch 044 inline fuel pump waiting to be put on, but mounting it is a problem. id have to mount in the engine bay, and im not sure how long it will last going from a 6 foot 1/4 inch intake to a 5/8 intake at the pump, then back down to 1/4. the only real option is see is to buy a mk1 geo metro 2 door fuel tank and see if it mates up, or take a risk and buy just the intank EFI assembly.
