Bosch electric fuel pumps
I'm sourcing a spare pump for #590 and have used the RV8 parts list from this site for relevant numbers. My local suppliers don't show a listing for Bosch 0.580.464.008 or 0.580.464.070. However, AC Delco EP181 does cross-reference to Bosch 69469. I can get 69469 from a number of sources, one being my Land Rover specialist. Unfortunately, they can't confirm this pump is the required 3.0 bar unit. Has anyone replaced a fuel pump for their RV8 and if so, do you have a part number?

Here's a link to a photo of pump 69469:
It certainly looks similar to the original pump installed on my car. I want to confirm it's output prior to purchase.

Hi Simon,

Have just read your post, this might be of some help. I sourced a replacement pump here in New Zealand through my local Bosch agent - part number on the invoice is 690580464070 and $265.00 NZD. Part number looks very similar to the one you mention. This pump was readily available off the shelf and is evidently also been used in Holden Commodore vehicles in this part of the world which may explain its availability here? Straight forward to install and looked identical to the pump that came out of the car. New pump was very much quieter than the failing pump I replaced. Hope this helps perhaps!

Thanks Dominic. I'll take that number to my supplier and see if we have it up here.

I stand corrected, but from memory the problem with the Bosch Commodore pump is that it has round terminal fittings not spade. Other that that it is the perfect pump for the job.

Gavin, you're quite right - this pump did have round terminals and my car (#1837) also had round terminals already in place. Thinking back the terminals were nicely soldered but didn't look "factory", indicating perhaps that the car had already had a pump replaced. The new pump also came with excellent fitting rubber "boots" that protected the terminals and connections on the pump. I tend to think the round terminal secured with nuts on the terminal posts is probably a more reliable connection too.

Interesting comment about the round terminals. I found a link to a Bosch Pump #69469 with those terminals:

It would appear the #69469 comes with both spade and round terminals.

I agree that the round terminals are a more secure connection.
