Perry Pumps

Does anyone know for sure which one is for alcohol based fuels and which one for gas? The information with one of the pumps says the red pump is for alcohol and the black is for gas. I go to the website and the latest model blue body and a black pump, but it does not say if it is for alcohol or gas. I tried to send them an Email but it came back un-delivered.

1. blue black allen key adjust
2. silver black hex adjust
3. silver red hex adjust

Re: Perry Pumps

This page is quite clear as to which pump is for which fuel.

Google - images - Perry pump found the attached picture of older models and the blurb below:

"The above picture shows three versions of the Perry pump. The one on the left with red plastic and silver body is the original version made by the Perry-Varsane company. Later Conley Engines began making these pumps and changed the external appearance (see pump in the middle of the above picture) to have black colored plastic and a blue colored body. Both the original red Perry pump and the early Conley versions used a hex shaped adjustment screw. Recent versions (see pump on right side in above picture) use a different adjustment screw. The newer pumps have a screw that is easier to adjust by inserting a hex tool into the screw. I strongly suggest using the new version with the hex adjustment screw as shown on the right side of the above picture."
