Default FuelPump: Water/Oil instead Fuel

Anyone tried to use a fuelpump to pump water or oil instead of boring fuel??

i have a walbro pump -->brand new (NOBODY want buy it), which i want use.

the fluid will be cooled from a oilcooler (bmw bike)

can it pump water?
can i pump 0w40 oil------>oil cools better



and pls

ITS NOT A AIRTOWATERINTERCOOLER IS USELESS THREAT!!!!!!!!!

wont work, the gerotor is mild steel. It'll rust, and the oil is too thick, it will overheat. Harbor freight has a sidewalk sale october 2-4th, man up and og buy a real water pump.

i don't think you need a 100 psi fuel pump for a water/oil pump in a a/w inter cooler set up. water might damage the pump (corrosion) and oil would be to thick and might not even pump it. you should look into a bilge pump from a boat supply house. i hear they are cheep and work well for what you need to do. use the fuel pump to pump fuel in your setup. and use water/coolant in the system not oil.

good luck on your project.

although he didnt try the idea. i think it could be done if you had enough coolant in your water. coolant is anti corrosive so i bet it would work
