View Full Version : VP and lift pump--where to shop?
11-20-2005, 10:33 AM
Hi fellas. My buddy's got a 98 24v in his shop with a bad VP. He was about to just swap in a new/reman VP when I mentioned that the lift pump most likely starved the VP, leading to its death. Soooo, both pumps will be replaced. My question is, what's the most cost-effective way to get the pumps? Reman is fine since the owner is short on $$$. I know you over-valved guys :D are gonna say FASS with a pressure gauge, but it's simply not in the budget. I see a new lift pump here in the classifieds for 125---is this a good ballpark? Just looking for opinions based on experience with the available aftermarket.

Some have used the Carter pumps from the local Auto Parts chain for ~$90.
The cheapest I've seen for the Cummins part numbered pump is $139.00
....Of course the Dodge dealer price is more than twice that. :rolleyes:

Thanks. I'll look into the parts store brand and see what they've got. I'm trying to get this fella to spring for a FP gauge, but he won't budge. Now, anybody got a used VP just kickin around? [whistle]

the Carter pump at Advance Auto is $249 give or take a couple of bucks. if you go with there's since 98' was a half year you have to tell the retards there to look up for a 99' (some of the people i work with at Advance aren't the brightest sometimes)
