as far as the high volume pump. I only used one on my 355 because the spec's are on the loose side for running dual shots of silly gas..
If I can remember. I have a couple of broken ones on "The wall of shame" I'll take a couple pics of them. They break between the mount boss and pump gear housing.

The only gear I have had break was because it sucked up a wire from a rotary Taiwan wire brush, that was used by the customer, to clean intake manifold area. That little 1/4" long piece of wire really cause some catastrophic results!!
