It's really best to mount the SL2000/Boxxer with the motor on top and rollers on the bottom. With the motor on the bottom, if the fuel tubing does break, you won't get fuel in the motor which could potentially be a fire hazard.

I've had my setup so long I even have the battery base. These were only available for a short time early on.

I have had my Slimline SL2000 pump for over 5 years. It's phenomenal.

You are doing yourself a disservice NOT having one if you are into Nitro.

I'd say mine is about 15 years old. I used a rebuild kit once when it was about 7-8 yeas old because I had never replaced the tubing or rollers.

How old is your tubing and have you ever tried to fill a tank without making sure the vent line was clear?
I have had it probably 6 years. I completely rebuilt it once and replace the line yearly. I have started with the vent closed, but never reached the point of where the pump would stall due to back pressure. I guess I do have mine mounted correctly

I try not to buy anything that the main selling point is "CNC"

Lord I apologize. Clearly Slimline recommend's not mounting their boxer pump as I have pictured. Worse than that, I noted in an earlier post that it didn't matter how they were mounted. Slimline's instructions suggest otherwise.

I suppose if the tubing were to break there is a possibility the pump and electric motor could be contaminated and possibly lead to a fire. A reasonable concern.

In my defense I have mounted Slimline pumps "inverted" for decades. Looking at it purely from the perspective of how the pump functions, it makes zero difference how it is mounted. If you study how the pumping action works, it doesn't know how it is mounted.

Sooo... Please follow Slimline's mounting suggestions. It's safest that way. I stand corrected. However, mine will remain inverted.
