I reckon a Hardi Fuel Pump is a better proposition than a Facet. Will self prime and only pumps when the pressure drops. Also gives a satisfying clicking noise when it's working all fine. If you get loads of clicking, you know you're pumping air and probably going to cut out shortly!

Other sources are available cheaper, but this type of ports should be alright for you I imagine.

Pump was a Facet SS501 and some other bits from Mini Spares Centre.

I'll dig out the receipt later.

It was mounted at the rear of the car (better at pushing) and only place I could find was behind the tank. Never got round to fitting the inertia switch. Was an arseache running the power feed beside the main look to the rear of the car.

Just stick a fresh mechanical pump on, much less hassle ;)

I’ve ordered a £6 primer bulb until I can decide if I want the hassle or not..
