    Afternoon guys,

    A customer has sent me a picture of his oil change pump. He says it's plastic and has (4) "fins". Have any of you all seen this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It is found in a 35ft Henriques w/Cummins power.

    I had it in a fuel transfer pump It was a while ago but I remember it wasn’t a problem getting it
    The pump was left on and it wore down the plastic fins that slide out when it is spinning

    That's the same as a Mallory electric fuel pump. But the Mallory has an aluminum body, Stainless crank, and hardened vanes. They will work for years if not run dry. As a transfer pump i say yes but as a oil change pump i would be Leary of that because it has a very small screen in it and if that screen clogs the vanes will wear that body pretty quickly.

    For clean fuel transfer i see no problem using one of those.

    Drawing a blank on the name of the maker but in my boat we have one and it has the exact same impeller. Sorry its one of the 2 big names of companies who make these pumps (oil change). Maybe reverso?
