521 fuel pump Carter brand

Recommended Posts

I just received 2 521(510 also) Carter Fuelpumps from Rockauto.

I have to say for 20$ its the closest thing to a stock looking pump. Box says made in USA but I don't believe it but have to say I liked them.  Some body on here is running one but if one wants a stock looking pump heres your chance to buy a spare or 2.

 

Nissan pumps are 75$ or above if not more by now

 

521 and 510 use the same inlet outlet routing on the pumps

also get spare drum brakes(I like the Bendix version) and shoes for the 521 as they are cheap under 20$

. the 510 drum are 80$ which is fricken expensive

Course they don't know which side is up... but yeah, they do look stock.

I've been running one all summer. So far so good. I resorted to using it after I couldn't find a rebuild kit for my Nikki.

I wanted something that looked original, and this was the only option. I’m running a stock Hitachi, and it seems to be keeping up with the carb just fine. For the price, I figured I’d just buy a couple spares.

I had one of these Carter pumps on my 521/L16 for awhile. It completely died on me 2 weeks ago, only pump I've ever had on any L series motor abruptly fail like that. I replaced it with a spectra premium...not stock looking but best reviews out of all that I looked at and I had one on an L28 for years with no issues...so far so good.

this is good to know. I thought the Spetra was the same pump ? as I saw a Spetra on Amazon and it was really the same stock looking clone. Unless these just keep changing with where they spurce their parts

 

How long is awhile.??/ did it last?

 

I have one Nissan spare(koyosan)

and a Nikki for 620 spare

a Blackstone bronze color cap one as a spare 510/321

and now 2 of these Carter stock looking sprares510/521

 

I have a Koyosan in my 521 and its been in there for a long time and I drive my 521 pretty much everyday since i owned it(19yrs) my 510 is maybe a weekend driver if that now. Once every 6 weeks maybe
