Easy, inexpensive solution to a very annoying problem
Added 2 of these pumps to a 1955 Dodge and a 1951 Packard to eliminate vapor lock. Thoroughly tested the ability of the original fuel pump to draw gas through the elect fuel pump when it is off.....original mech pump had no problem keeping the car at frwy speeds pulling gas through the elect fuel pump. Heat soak after frwy drive and exiting frwy to stop at Red light is a recipe for vapor lock.....when vapor lock starts I turn on elect fuel pump and the increased gas line pressure instantly recondences the vapor to a liquid and eliminates stalling in traffic. Install as close to the gas tank as possible. Easy , inexpensive solution to a very annoying problem.

Perfect for 6 volt systems, old cars.........
The Airtex fuel pump is exactly what I was looking for, Works on 6 volt systems on older cars. It puts out an adequate amount of fuel, comes with all the necessary parts to hook up to most systems, and is easily mounted .
The included fuel filter is kind of flimsy and is easily crushed, which happened to me when trying to seal and tighten the threads. Instead of taking the chance of internal damage not evident , i replaced it with a see thru plastic filter to monitor the filters contents. Easy fix

Vinage Airtex Electric Fuel Pump is still available
I have had one of these Airtex fuel pumps on my vintage 6V car for over 20 years. It recently failed so I had to find a replacement. I really like the Airtex fuel pump because of it's small size, isolated electrical design (so it can be used on a 6V, positive ground vehicle) and quiet operation. As I stated, my original pump has been working for over 20 years, and I really doubted that I would be able to buy the exact same pump anymore. I went to every auto parts store in my city and was not able to even order this fuel pump. I was just about to resign myself to buying a much larger, louder, and more expensive pump when I decided to try finding one via Google. I was amazed that BTA-MALL came up with the exact same pump. They not only had this pump in stock, it was significantly less expensive than any other replacement pump I looked at. The first pump that BTA-MALL sent to me did not function for some reason, but BTA-MALL promptly sent me a replacement, which is installed and working great. The only reason I do not give this five stars is the non-functional pump that was sent to me. It makes me wonder if Airtex quality is as good as it used to be.

Dependable product for old truck
I bought this to replace my stock pump on a 1950 Willys pickup with a 4 cylinder engine and a 6 volt system. Wow, what an immediate difference. This solved my problems of inconsistent fuel flow. If you are listening for it, you can hear the pump run when you turn on the key--I like that feature as it lets me know things are working. You do need to add an inline fuel regulator. My pickup is pretty much stock but, of the modern features I've added, this is absolutely the best thing I have done. Price is super good as well.

Quite happy with this pump
Quite happy with this pump. Installed it on my '46 Buick Super 50 after I thought the mechanical fuel pump died. Unfortunately, turns out that wasn't the case, but having this electric pump is still much nicer when having to deal with priming the fuel system than the mechanical pump. It can take a while to draw fuel from the tank the first time, but once it has established flow, it works very well.
I did think the wire crimp terminals provided were really crappy and not the right size for the wires on the pump, but this wasn't a big deal.

I installed this fuel pump in a 1936 Packard. The pump is quiet and packages well on this car. I selected this pump because it is compatible with 6V positive ground.

This was a great surprise to me
The E8011 AIRTEX Electric fuel pump failed after running for half an hour. This was a great surprise to me . I have used other AIRTEX pumps and they have been excellent. I will buy one again everyone has a bad run of products now and then.

Pump is easy to install
Pump is easy to install, works on positive ground systems due to other work needed on the 39 international D30 I have not had it running enough to see if it will supply the need but I expect it will.

Works as advertised
I wanted a pump with built in check valve that would allow me to have either 6 volt negative or positive ground. As well, I wanted to be able to pull through the pump with my stock fuel pump, using the electric pump to fill the carburetor after extended storage of my antique vehicles without extensive cranking. Works as advertised and fits the need perfectly.
