Righty.......Got my sump plate back today, needs a good clean and paint but you get the idea. Also got the AN10 check valve :







I have contacted TurboWerx regarding there range of scavenger pumps.
TurboKraft use and sell there pumps also, so that can only be good.

I explained the issues I was having with my current pump and this is there reply :

Any of our pumps (Base-Model, Exa-Pump, or Exa-pump Mini) will function perfectly in this application as this is the exact purpose they were designed for. Other brands of pumps are relabeled Chinese-made water/fuel-transfer pumps and among their many other problems they run smaller gears at the incorrect RPM for this application. These commodity water pumps create excessive noise, cavitation, have shorter life, etc. Just night and day differences between our pumps and the others. This is also why ours are relatively quiet. However, the way the pump is mounted can dominate how much noise/vibration is transferred to the chassis/frame rail. But unless you bypass the rubber mounts altogether and mount directly to the pump bracket you will not have any noticeable noise.
We are a huge fan of forums - especially the Pelican Parts forum. We are open to special-pricing for group-buys if one is ever organized. Let us know how we can help. Thanks.

Check out this Youtube video for a comparison of the pumps Uncle and I are using and the TurboWerx base model pump :

I have decided to order there base model pump and keep my drip tank and pump back to the sump plate.
I ordered it asap due to it taking aprox 2 weeks to get to me.
Fingers crossed the pump will be hugely quieter and also cause minimal cavitation.
I have seen several other Pelicans using this base model also.
