I don't have an inertia switch, but they are nice! I have a simple emergency off switch that is a toggle with the red snap cover and labeled "fuel pump". Of course the drawback over an inertia is I have to be concious to operate it.

I agree that $100 is kind of pricey but it's hard to put a price on your safety . But , we all have to draw the line somewhere when it comes to cost . I may just put one of the oil pressure safety switches on it that will cut the ignition and fuel pump if oil pressure is not present . I'll just have to remember to crash hard enough to kill the motor !! IIRC those switches cost considerably less .

I just had another conversation with Skip White Performance about the leaky fuel pump and remarkably Rob just happened to be talking with their tech about it when I called ! Wow ! What a coincidence ! He again apologized for not calling me back like he said he would (for the third time ) and went on to tell me that his tech said he has only seen this happen one other time and for me to get two in a row ... well, he just can't imagine what the odds must be . I guess he is implying I bought a new fuel pump and just decided to pull a perfectly good pump off of my car and want to exchange it TWICE . During this conversation he did ask me for the second time if I bought it within the last thirty days . Again , looking for a reason not to stand behind their products. Can you tell I'm PO'd ??? I have never bad mouthed a seller because of one bad transaction but this takes the cake . I would like to speak with Skip White himself just to make sure he knows this is how his customers are being treated . I can't imagine this is how he wants his business run .

I'm confused. Are you and Choptop26 the same person, with two user names?

The Carter pump is a good pump for gas. Our diesel trucks come with them however if they go 100k miles it's time to replace them or at least carry a spare and tools to change them. Actually they have very poor rep on the Dodge 24 valve diesel.

I think I confused you. We use the same pump with different electrical connections on the diesel trucks. The One you see in Summit is for gas for our hotrods. It is a good pump and I think a bit quieter than the average vane pump.
