I finally had enough extra money to order another pump from Rockauto. I've warrantied the Airtex out already twice because of failing pressure regulators. So they told me to order another brand and they would refund the Airtex I ordered originally. Well I only had enough to get a Spectra SP2207H and when I looked at it there was a Spectra label on top of the pump that was covering an Airtex label. So I guess Spectra bought Airtex. It probably won't last more than a year or two again. The clear tube going to the regulator won't stay in the cheap plastic clip that's made into the module hold down clamp. I had to zip tie the tube in there. Is that ok? I can't remember but I think I had that problem last time too. I remember the last time I put the Airtex pump in the fuel gauge is off about 4 gallons. I don't know if it was a bad sending unit card or we installed the pump wrong. Does the pump sending unit arm need to be in a certain position when installing the pump down into the tank?
