Porsche Crest Rebuilt Fuel Pump

I found the source of my starting problem that I've been having (after the car has been warmed up): The fuel pump check valve. Pressure in the fuel ring falls to 0 within a minute after you kill the engine but holds steady at 24 if you clamp the pressure hose coming out of the pump (after you turn the car off).
The good news is that I just put in this fuel pump a couple months ago, and being that it is a rebuilt unit, it is still under warranty. Apparently, the rebuild process is less than optimal because the first rebuilt unit I received didn't generate nearly the pressure needed to run the car, so my question is this: Has anyone ever bought a rebuilt fuel pump that has worked correctly and lasted as long as it should? I'm trying to avoid sending this in for the warranty only to end up with another non-functioning pump, or worse yet, one that craps out a day after the 1 year warranty. Steve

Steve, can you tastefully identify the source of your rebuilt pumps?

ParkWerks of Chicago. I don't recommend ordering from them...cheap prices, but at least in my dealing, their lack of customer service it obviously how they do it. At this point, I'm over the bitterness and just want a fuel pump I can count on without having to eat the money I spent on the rebuilt unit.

I had the similar problems with a rebuilt pump from Performance Products. I wasted a weekend troubleshooting it and ended up returning it and purchasing a new one from PP. I should have bought from PP in the first place.
