good info replaced the o-ring with a softer thinner silicone type sucks like monica Lewinsky now

God, I wish that I'd said that!!!!

For TuthillCorp, I've had one of your 110v pumps for the 12 years and it's still going strong. The 12v pump is only a few months old but I expect that it'll see me out. Thanks for a great product ... and customer service.

Where to find a Rotor Key for a C1200?

This message is directed to Mr. TuthillCorp, but also others who may be able to help:

I am desperately in need of the rotor key that affixes the rotor to the motor shaft of my Fill-Rite 1200C transfer pump (build date: 18/08).

I have not been able to source just the key, and as all other parts in the pump work perfectly fine and there is no corrosion or debris build-up (less than 1/2 hour total service on the unit), I do not need an expensive rebuild kit. Just a replacement for the fiberboard key I lost!

Can you help? I live in the Portland, OR region.

Thanks, JM

I am elated! Thank you so much for your help.

It's been a long time since I have received such dedication from any representative of a company! I've followed Mr. Tuthill's previous responses to other Fill-Rite owners' queries, and can only hope that Tuthill's management recognizes what a difference his service makes for the company's image and reputation.
This kind of customer service influences my future buying decisions.

Pump works again, thanks to Mr. Tuthill's superb customer service.

I can heartily recommend the Tuthill company's products, just for the fact alone that its customer service is absolutely tops!

My 12v pump's rotor spins freely so the fiber key needs to be replaced. How does it come off? The rotor spins freely but does not slide off. Do I need to remove the center screw? If so, how since the motor turns with the screw? CanI get only the fiber key? The pump is a couple of years old but has only been used a total of 45 minutes.

Thanks for your post on your 12 VDC pump.


I a man a bit confused to your reference of a "center screw". We do not have any screws inside the pump. There should only be the rotor, the vanes (they slide in the slots in the rotor), and the fiber rotor key.


If you can send me a picture of the center screw, that would also help.


You should be able to remove the vanes and slide the rotor off the motor shaft and clean out the broken rotor.


If you private message me with your address, I can get you a new fiber rotor key.


Thanks again for your post.

TuthillCorp

Hi,

Sorfy about the delay. Mixed up two different items. I do need a new key though.

How do you send a private message?

Thanks

Hello Snowtrac,

Ouch, the pump housing actually cracked? If possible, I would like to see a picture of what cracked.

To answer your question though, we do not provide the pump housing casting. On many of our models, the pump casting is actually part of the motor assembly. Trying to remove it creates an issue with the explosion proof rating of the pump as it compromises the flame paths that we need to build into the pump to get our explosion proof approvals.

So, bottom line, your pump is now good for parts.

Again, I would like to see a picture if you could.

Tuthill - Hope you're still around.
I have your FR1211C 12v pump with manual nozzle.
Want to switch to an auto nozzle.
I'm pumping gas.
I think your N075UAU10 nozzle looks like what I need but hoping you can confirm or provide a more appropriate model.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,
I have a model 700 pump that was working fine on my diesel tank. The problem is when i installed it on a gasoline tank it worked about 4 times and it quit. What is does is that it hums. So i removed the cover for the veins and rotor. And turned it on and it spins. When i put the cover it will only spin if i dont tighten the bolts. So basically is looks like the vein and or rotor is being compressed when the cover is on. Can someone help me out and give me an idea on what is causing this. I though maybe the gasket on the cover shrank but no it is slightly popping out of the opening it goes into. Is it possible that the shaft the rotor goes on could have moved out of place?
