I would just go to your local JY and get one, or just buy a new one, but that's just me...

I am not trying to be rude or mean, but I always research the hell out of my problem, think about it for a while, write it down and include all the background research I have done and all the info gleaned from such research, re-read it, post, and the start researching some more. If all elses fails or I don't get answers fast enough, I go to the JY, grab my parts, try it and when it fails, add that to the post and keep on trying. Again, not trying to be too mean here, that just my process, and it seems to work well for me
I honestly don't know all that much about fuel pumps and such and if I did I would help ya. There are some super smart people on this forum that I am sure can help, but it's slow as well on here at times, so just be patient. Good luck to ya, and I won't pollute this thread anymore with my rants

Iv been reading a lot about the ford fuel pump that works on a subie. i have an 1988 ea82 spfi 3-door(2dr-hatch) and the pump started leaking once i filled with it up with gas after runnin it bone dry. Will the pump leak if its been ran out of gas a bunch? But will the ford pump work on my SPFI motor? If so please put in your 2 cents about the situation. Different car fuel pumps that will work, parts numbers and prices please i'm real tight on cash flow and need the cheapest one i can get.(cheapest in money not in quality)
I used google to teach me about the Ford fuel pump as well as searching on the boards. The pump is popular in the VW crowds. One site said it's not self-priming, which may have something to do with what you're asking.

pumps for EA82's pretty cheap.

these ford pumps are like 90 psi, the spfi is around 45-50 isn't it? You may want to install a fuel pressure regulator that can handle that pressure to bring it down a bit. i ran this on a turbo which calls for 70 or so psi and it was fine.

That could be from pressure of the system pushing it out of a pinhole some where?
I have been smelling gas for a little while but never payed that much attention to it and then i run out of gas, put gas in it, start leaking gas.
And where i could the gas leaking was from the mounting plate of the pump.
All the lines were clean and dry. The plate had some built up sediment from getting wet with fuel then dirt klinging to it.

running the pump dry will not make it leak. but a leak present will affect pressure to the injector
