How to make a universal pumping device from an old fuel pump

Some components and assemblies removed from cars are fully functional and can be successfully adapted to perform some other functions. For example, an electric fuel pump that does not provide the required pressure or performance can also be put into operation, and this does not require high costs or any special knowledge and skills from you.

It will take

Materials:

  • an old fuel pump removed from a car;
  • universal cyanoacrylate glue;
  • plastic tube and hose;
  • clamps in the form of tension springs;
  • metal fitting;
  • electrical wiring for power supply;
  • scotch tape or electrical tape.

The process of transforming an old fuel pump into a universal transfer device

We fix a short plastic tube to the inlet of the fuel pump, and more specifically to the outlet, using universal cyanoacrylate glue.

Reinforce it for a secure compression with a clamp in the form of a suitable compression spring.

We insert a metal fitting into one end of a long hose, fix it with universal glue and additionally strengthen it with a compression spring with discharged end coils, which are designed to hold the base of the hose from sharp bends and breaks. We insert the free end of the metal fitting into a short plastic tube at the pump inlet and also put it on a universal glue to ensure tightness.

An electrical cord with a plug at one end, “crocodiles” connected to the main wires of the electrical cord with insulation of the connection point, a switch in the middle and terminals at the other end, are connected to the electrical contacts of the fuel pump and securely insulated with insulating tape.

Thanks to such an electric cord, the pump motor can receive electricity from both the power supply unit and the 12 Volt battery and be used to pump a wide variety of liquids. That is, we have got a universal pump, both in terms of power supply and in terms of functions performed (pumped liquids).

With the help of such a pump, you can pump various fuels (gasoline, diesel fuel) from a canister or other container into the fuel tank of a car and vice versa. It is also possible to suck used engine oil out of the engine lubrication system without placing the machine in a pit or lift and having to unscrew the drain plug. In this case, we use a car battery as a power source.
