My diesel fuel transfer pump as died, and it needs an AM876116 which sells for $213!! I have bought marine grade fuel pumps on Amazon for less than $30 for other diesel engines. Is there any reason I need the expensive one?

Just as long as the flow and pressure are close enough-no reason not to go elsewhere (and rated for diesel-not just gas).

I used a mr gasket diesel pump I found at autozone. It was rated for diesel and right around 50 bucks. Worked great. I cut the plug off the oem and wired it onto the new pump so it plugged right in. The mounting holes even matched.

You can use the AM876266 which is around $90.00. This pump is after the serial number break for the 332. They made a wiring harness change that affected how things where grounded. You will have to add a ground wire to the frame at the pump. Make sure that your return fuel line to the tank is clear. Mine was plugged and burnt a couple of pumps before I figured it out.

Thanks for this tip! I just installed the same pump on my 332 with 1100 hours. I also replaced the pickup hose inside the fuel tank which was cracked.

What a difference! The tractor now seems to have so much more power when mowing, and the max RPM's seem slightly higher as well. The original lift pump must have been pretty tired.

I also just replaced both leaking power steering cylinder hoses with the larger diameter hoses sold on eBay, and they made a great improvement in the steering response compared to the OEM hoses.

some aftermarket pumps have failed quicker than the OEM ones. I have read quite a few posts about it over the last decade and used an OEM one on mine. figured it lasted 10+ years

if you get any air in the injection system, it will hurt performance and make it run weaker

it can also run with out a lift pump at idle for hours if there is no blockage or leaks in the fuel lines
