I flew 2 hours today. Checked the tank fuel level with my dip stick before and after flight. The Dynon was exactly accurate on fuel remaining. I did not change the k-factor after the new higher pressure pump.

Here is the tech info on all of them, very close in detail and appears 106 and 135 are the same specs.

Maybe the connector on the positive lead?

The 135 comes with the “packard” connector which is a male spade connector in an odd plastic housing. I had to cut it off and add a female spade to match up with the plane harness. It looks like the 106 doesn’t have a connector, just bare stripped wire.

Thanks for the replies, this is exactly what I saw from the specs. Basically easier to crimp on a new connector to a bare wire on the 40106 to connect to the filter capacitor and power supply lead.

Unfortunately Notice N18-07-12 specifies 40135 only, despite several Facet pumps with the same specs and dimensions. It also seems the 40106 is stock in many more places then 40135, at least here in Canada.

Thanks all.

...I also love that Facet/Purolator posts "NOT INTENDED FOR AIRCRAFT USE" on every webpage and document...

"WARNING: FACET AND PUROLATOR FUEL PUMPS SHOULD NOT BE USED IN AIRCRAFT AS THEY ARE NOT DESIGNED, TESTED OR MANUFACTURED FOR ANY AIRCRAFT APPLICATIONS." ...but they work perfectly for me.

For something like an extra buck, Van's includes the appropriate connector to match up with the "Packard" connector.. Either way, I guess you either cut the plane's wiring harness, or the connector on the fuel pump.. Potato - Potatoe..
