Do you need the part right now? There is a seller on ebay (fuelpumpking I believe) selling Bosch units at a decent price. No experience with the other brands.

I bought a Bosch and I seem to have an issue where it doesnt seem to reach as far down into the tank as my old unit. Causes the jeep to cut out when the gas swishes around when approaching 1/4 tank, dunno if it is just me.

Are you using a 95- assembly Glyphic?

You can adjust the height of the fuel pump...

it's a 92, I don't recall seeing anything to allow that, it was a major pain to get it to seal correctly too, ended up having to drop the tank.

Re: Precision Fuel Pumps- Good or Bad???

I imagine you're dealing with O'Reillys? I work for O'Reillys, we just started carrying Precision pumps about a month ago. I haven't heard any complaints on them yet, but I would be leary as they use Airtex part numbers. I would venture a guess that they are just relabeled Airtexs, atleast the first few batches. I like Bosch or Carter personally, Delphis are also supposed to be good. I would avoid Precision for now, just my .02.
