  • 120 V Pump From Northern Tool

    In case anyone is interested, i have talked to a couple of people about these pumps and thought i would report back since having hooked it up and using it.

    The quality of this pump is just what you would expect from China, notably the electrical cord..it feels like the insulation in the ires is very thin and i cut the cord to wire in a switch and the insulation inside proved to be ...well medeocre at best.
    Other than that, the pump moved oil very fast and you almost can't hear the pump when its on. It is not self priming but i mounted it down lower than my vegi tank so it will always hold a prime, so no problem there.
    For the price, i would buy another one. Although i noticed the price has increased to 69.00 and i paid 49.00 - maybe watch for it on sale.
    I will see how long it last but when i find them on sale again i will likely bu another one to set on the shelf for a backup.

    northern tool pump

    This is the same pump that came with my oc50 set up from F2F,good pump.Only flaw is if you have nozzle on it(like at gas station)the pressure when u release handle will shorten its life ,very quickly.If this is your application i would suggest mounting on\off switch on nozzle by the handle.P.s.you still paid less then myself after it passed through F2fs hands.How much did that pod above the mirror cost ?the greasyX needs some new toys..........grease out

      I put a bypass in line with it so when i release the pump nozzle, the pressure is rerouted through the bypass.

      That pod...um, don't know for sure, it came with my original V2 setup. Maybe 60 bucks?

        This is what I use, I have a cold up flow filter setup then from final barrel it pumps through a 1 micron bag. I let it circulate for about an hour then pump into my truck.

        Here

        cold it flows at about 5 - 10 gallons per minute and the bag catches a boat load of fats.

          I have the same pump too. I have seen several post where folks say they filter for an hour or so by cicrulating the oil through a one micron filter. I also use a one micron filter but I only send the oil through the filter once. I would think it is a waste of time and energy circulating the oil. If it goes through a one micron filter it should be down to one micron. Does everyone do this for peace of mind or am I missing something?

            Yours came with an electrical cord? Bastards at Northern Tools....

              The one I bought did not have a cord either. I used an old extension cord.

                I have heard the ones from Harbor Frieght do not have a cord but thats not the same pump either. It looks the same but the delivery rate is different.
                Your better off puting your own cord on it as the one that came with it leaves much to be desired.

                  I do it for peace of mind, yes in all technicality 1 micron should equal 1 micron, but there is a difference between 1 micron and 1 micron absolute.
                  My fuel is heated, settled and cf'ed, but I still run the bag filter and you would be shocked at the sludge I rinse from the filter.

                  before the bag filter I would change my trucks filter every 2500 miles or so, after the filter it was about every 5000, now that i recirculate I am at 7000 miles and counting.

                  Now I will qualify this it was the first two filters that only lasted 2500 and I could attribute that to getting the assembly muck out of the tank, and the third was running oil that was CF'ed just shortly before the cf pump failed so it may not have been fully cleaned but I doubt that much. And as i said the amount of trapped material in the bag filter shows me how much was still in the oil. there is about 8 oz of fatty goo for about every 500 gallons. this is filtered cold about 70 degrees f.

                    My first filter didn't last as long either. Something like 800 miles. this one now has 2500 so far.
                    There definitely is a difference between regular and absolute filters. regular filters only capture a small percentage of the rating. Absolute captures a much larger percentage.
