The Razor Performance dry sump pump has a long history, steeped in aerospace technology, from which it got its traits in quality, durability, and performance.
This pump mounts to the bellhousing, typical of a dirt Late Model. Razor also makes pumps to fit all other applications, including the new low bellhousing mounts for the asphalt Late Models as well as direct cam mounts. They are available as shown, or with mounting for either KCR or KSE power steering units and/or most popular fuel pumps.
The seven-tooth design gear will deliver 25 percent more volume than a nine-tooth design, or a smaller section may be used. The seven-tooth design will also draw more vacuum than the nine-tooth design. While it will not draw as much vacuum as the lobe style, it is not as susceptible to locking up as debris passes through it. The idler shaft turns in needle bearings, making a freer rotating assembly with less heat generated.
The body sections of the Razor pump are made from 6061 aluminum, extruded in the shape of the body with the center hole, and then CNC-machined. This gives a better grain structure, keeping the housing from distorting under heat cycles and stress loads. All of the O-rings and the seal are Viton, which affixes better under the temperatures encountered in racing applications.
The gears are available in either steel or 7000 series aluminum. Aluminum is preferred because of the weight savings and less rotating mass, but more importantly, the gears grow at the same rate as the pump bodies, keeping the internal tolerances tighter. Debris will pass through easier, lessening the possibility of the pump locking up.
Katech chose Razor to be the pump of choice for the ASA engine, and the ARCA truck series chose Razor as its official pump.
Others, just to name a few, who have used the Razor pump with great success are: Brett Hearn (DIRT Modifieds), Al Purkey (Late Models), John Anderson (Modifieds), and John Seitz (Modifieds). Open-wheel racers R.J. Johnson, Brian Carlson, and Bobby Ream Jr. use the pump on their championship cars. Many winners in the Canadian CASCAR circuit have taken the Razor Performance pump to Victory Lane.
The pump was originally designed and built in Canada, but is now built in Arizona and looking for more exposure in the U.S. markets.
