Tiger Fuel Pump mounting bracket pad

Postby gbyxbee » Fri Mar 15, 2019 8:52 am

Ran across a pretty good replacement fuel pump bracket mounting pad at Lowe's in their plumbing department. Their stock number is 253179. It is made by Oatey and their product number is 43796. It compresses nicely ... not too hard and not too spongy but use your own judgment! One pad is good for 3 brackets. Just be sure to cut it lengthwise (it is rectangular) or it won't wrap entirely around the pump. Even doing so it is still about 1/2" short of going around the pump but I think it serves its purpose.

Very clever. Needed material like this for other applications too. Walked right by it and it never hit me. Some people are better shoppers. TT

In case you don't have a Lowe's close by.

Free delivery too. That's cheaper than driving to HD or Lowes. Boggles my mind.
