582 Electric fuel pump?

Some help please people.


What electric fuel pump ( fuel pressure ) do I use with a rotax 582?


Can there be to much or to little pressure?

After a bit of research, I'm going to add a Facet pump (genuine, not a copy) model 40105 to my 582. The pump has a max pressure of 4 psi.


I will use it primarily to prime the carbs (thus removing the bulb hand primer), and as a backup in case of failure of the mechanical Mikuni pump.


So, will probably use it for take offs and landings as well.

Low pressure facet is the way to go as per H/Feathers post. I have run one with my 582 for 5 yrs and no problems. Dont forget the bypass/one way valve and filter.

Thanks for the replies gentleman.


Tell me more about the bypass/one way valve and where it goes?


I have looked at pumps with 1.5 - 3.5psi, 2.5 - 4.5psi and 4 - 6psi. Which one fits my needs best.
