    I am a fan of Odyssey AGM batteries after having had BMW Exide gel failures after 1 year of age. If you're at the point in life where you can afford whatever you want, I understand your frugal nature...

    FIXED :twirl

    I must admit I checked the mail box three times today, anxious for the part to come from MAX. They shipped USPS with online tracking so I knew it was out for delivery.

    Today I got out of work a little earlier than I expected, and found my new GS911 waiting in the mail box. Not bad, 2 days from CA. I had picked up some starting fluid on the way home, too.

    I have some electrical connector parts and I will make 2 pins to mate to the fuel pump, completely bypassing the FPC. Then...

    racer 7, looking at the parts online, it looks like I could buy just the pump for around $350 from Max, yet you suggest I must buy the whole assembly. Is there something I'm missing?

    Thanks for the last two replies. I've been busy at work and I probably won't have more time to troubleshoot before this weekend at the earliest, but by then my new GS911 will be here. (I bit the...

    I just ran Google Maps, it is about 1500 miles and 22 hours.
