Our in-line universal electric fuel pumps are suitable for many domestic and imported passenger cars, trucks, marine and industrial engines. These pumps come in a variety of configurations, depending on need.
Rotary vane design
Originally created for military use, this design has been in production longer than any other Carter model. Rotating vanes driven by a heavy-duty wet motor deliver pressure from 4 to 18 psi at a flow rate of up to 100 gallons per hour. This provides excellent lift and prime capability. The pump is available in 6-, 12- and 24-volt versions. It is appropriate for RV, marine, agricultural, industrial and performance applications.
Carter Carotor design
Carter Carotor universal pump applications range from carburetor to TBI & MFI systems. They are also used in many OE-type hanger and module assemblies. The gerotor is unquestionably the most versatile pump design today. It utilizes a unique gear and rotor eccentric mechanism that squeezes the fuel within the pump to create high pressure with very little pulsation. Compact, lightweight and fuel-cooled, it is a current favorite of many OE manufacturers. EFI marine manufacturers are also installing these robust gerotors to meet their fuel delivery demands.
Solenoid pumps, the most widely used universal type, are designed to fit many universal applications. They’re available in many different pressure ranges and for use in 12-volt, 24-volt and, soon, 6-volt applications. Rather than a motor, the solenoid pump uses a piston actuated by an electromagnetic coil to generate fuel pressure and flow. By using only short pulses of electricity, the solenoid pump is very energy-efficient. It is also long-lasting, with no internal rubber parts or bellows to wear out.
Remember: To ensure long life and keep your warranty intact, be sure to install a new fuel filter on the inlet side of your universal pump!
