on Beck Subaru: What part is this?

Postby PeterL » Sat Aug 11, 2018 3:52 pm

Hi. On my Subaru-powered Beck spyder, I am getting a somewhat high-pitched whining noise under the front end. It's a constant sound, doesn't depend on engine RPM, rolling or not, thermostat open or not, radiator fan spinning or not. Just whining all the time.

I opened up the front skid plate and determined that it was this part making the noise. What is it?

Looks like the fuel pump to me. That would explain the noise.

Thanks. Yeah, it's definitely a fuel pump. I guess what I meant to ask is, what fuel pump is it? It doesn't look like a Subaru external fuel pump. I was hoping someone would know what part it is so that I can preorder one before taking the old one off.

I don't know what pump you have, but when I swapped a Sube into my car I used an external pump from a late 1990s F-150 pickup. Bosch P/N 69100, I believe. It looks a lot like what you have there.

A quick update on this. It turns out that the Bosch 69100 inline (external) fuel pump is not the right part for my car. For one thing, my Subaru-powered Beck has 3/8" fuel lines, and the 69100 is for 5/16". Taking a closer look, the engine and fuel system were built by Outfront Motorsports. A quick call to them identified the build and the right fuel pump, which is an OE part made by TI Automotive.

Just in case anyone else ends up in a similar situation.

FYI: There really are no OE parts on these cars...
