Facet Goldflo? Polyurethane fuel line?

1997 Views 6 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Believer45
I've read about the Facet Dura-Lift and the Facet cheapy fuel pump here, but I see there is a Facet Goldflo that looks like the right specs, only thing that might not be good is it dosen't appear to have a back flow check valve.
I did a search and got zero results for Goldflo.

Also I have read about clear PVC fuel line, but locally I am told that Polyurethane is much better, and won't harden over time. Again, I did a search and found nothing.

Anyone have experiences with either to share?

Go to THIS SITE and take a look - max working temp is 175 degrees, not high enough for fuel line anywhere in the engine compartment. Max pressure is 135 psi which may be an issue as well. In the description of applications they do not mention fuel lines but it appears it is petroleum product resistant as it is recommended for hydraulic control systems.

185 to my mind is still not high enough for engine bay temps. Coolant temps are higher that that one.

Speaking of engine bay temps, dosen't that air filter take in hot air?
It can but when the truck is moving there is enough air in through the grill that it is not an issue. Others have actually installed temp sensors and tested and noted no or minimal intake temp increase with open element filter.

CLICK HERE to go to an archived thread I started when I installed it in 8/7/2001. It has been working fine for going on eight years.
