Hi all...not sure ....but if for a model application 'paddysdad'....in OZ we would just go to an Auto supplier for a replacement windscreen washer pump.....they come in two versions...both of which are 12 Vdc

1) the gear type version ...[technically positive displacement]

2) the impeller type version...[could better if you have a fast filling leaking boat]

The latter is not intended as a joke...just think about it

regards Derek  :-))

Very popular with the Bait Boat Boys.

....and with inland waterways boats.  You can get them at any inland waterway chandlery.  Several of them have an on-line pesence as well.   Just one example is Midland Chandlers

www.midlandchandlers.co.uk

they also have several branches.

why not try the pumps the ic boys use to refuel , i have one in my tug and it works for me (a bit slow but it works) .i also have a gaupner 12v pump ,both of them are the gear type and are self priming , one word of warning if your bilges are as dirty as mine fit an in-line filter as little bit's can break your pump gears , i have found out the hard way  O0.
