What's a good glow fuel pump nowadays? These little units are not cheap are they? Kinda tired of leaks!
There's a lot of older posts on this but I was wondering what most of you are using now?

The lot I got is not a lot, but I thank God a lot for the lot I got!

Very interesting point.

At the beginning, electric pump was my favorite.
Then, leaking and motor failure wasted my time, so I decided manual pumping using the starter motor.
Leaking issues and gear worn-out problem follow this...

At this time, I preferred manual pumping hangar9 gadget for glow and gas.

I've tried alot of hand crankers..I still like these inexpesive "Magnum" units distributed by Global hobby distributors..I think they are still available..the one I'm using now has been going strong for over four yrs. They cost 15-20 bucks.

I do a great decending funnel!

I love my Slimline 2000 but I don't think you can get them anymore.

I had one Magnum last for years and one only lasted a few months, best to carry a spare hand pump whatever main pump you choose.

I cant vouch for this pump but I have purchased from this vendor and he backs up his products.

Slimline pumps and fuel jugs are still available.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

The SL 2000 from Slimline is a great pump. It has never leaked and it just works. However, you can't find the page to order one from their main site anymore. You have to Google it. From the page, once you find it, it looks like you can add a pump to the cart but if you call he doesn't have any in stock. He is having trouble finding a switch that will work. He'll add your name to a waiting list. Hopefully, he'll get it figured out. I'd really like another one.
