Default How would you store a mildly used electric fuel pump?

Wondering what considerations there would be in storing a used
electric fuel pump that likely has a fair number of miles left in it.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

Maybe coat it with a shot of WD-40 and wrap it in Saran wrap.
Then bag it.
I've got some fairly new parts coming off the car I'm junking because
they'll fit my new car.
Alternator, starter motor, coil packs, spark module, A/C compressor,
condenser.
Except for the condenser which I'll just plug, that's what I'm
thinking of doing. Might be years before I use them.
So I'm watching this to see other advice.
I'll have to go buy WD-40. Don't like it, but I hear this is what
it's made for.

probably not a bad idea, although I would have suggested Diesel fuel for
the small amount of wax in it after it evaporates. Old farmer trick.
Just don't get any on the electric motor portion, just the bits with
seals, exposed uncoated metal, etc. Petroleum based solvents can cause
the windings to swell (or so the story goes, and why take the chance?)
and I would assume that they could wipe out the lube in any
bushings/bearings on the motor shaft.

for a pump that otherwise lives inside a fuel tank, how exactly do you
think "swelling" [pfffffft!!!!] or "wipe out" is going to happen inside
a plastic bag? anosognosic retard.

read for comprehension ****stick, he also referred to a starter motor
and alternator.

You ought to feel stupid now but we all know you will just somehow
rationalize it to yourself somehow.

ah, so not only is comprehension an issue, the hamster brain is easily
distracted too. next time nate, re-read the POST TITLE before insisting
how ****ing stoooopid you really are.

you couldn't rationalize your way off being stuck to the side of a
toilet bowl.

I'd opt for the recycle bin.

WD-40 won't harm the pump, but in a few months it will be gummed up
quite well. It will then take a whole lot more WD-40 to free up all the
moving parts again. I would suggest spraying it with a good grade of
silicone oil. The silicone won't gum up, but will cost a bit more than
twice as much as a can of WD. Go with the silicone spray.

My $.02

Personally I'd throw it the hell away. With as much trouble as it is
to replace a Mustang's fuel pump, I'm certainly not going that far to
install a used fuel pump that "likely has some miles left."
