Well according to the person who was making em the other 2 broke them and requested replacements after he stopped making em. I figure if I decide to sell it after repairing I'll make a killing with a motivated buyer

Sounds like you need to make a knock off and have a side gig. I'd make your knock off better than the original. The original seems to have a problem with breaking.

Fwiw my $140 speedmaster electric fuel pump lasted about 40 minutes of run time over 2 years. 

40 minutes of run time over 2 years tells me there was a lot of very old fuel sitting in that pump for a long time. Not always a favorite thing for fuel systems. Just sayin'.

Did you run the pump dry before storing? Or did it get out regularly and you only ran it for a minute or two? That's a plausible use case for a drag car :)

Never ran dry, and it's generally drive off trailer to tech, shut down, drive to staging lanes, shut down, make pass and back to trailer, shut down.  I'm not sure if it didn't like being cycled so much or if it's just trash but i feel like i wasted a lot of $ when you can almost literally hook up a holley "blue" pump out of the trash and run it for years

I have worked in engineering and manufacturing environments for 30 years now and unfortunately yes counterfeiting is rampant and Amazon is a huge offender in creating a gargantuan channel for it, and just as bad in my wee noodle is that you could actually be "Areomotive" (or some brand) and send a spec to China, get good first articles and 6 months later you are selling counterfeits of your own product.  Fake QC reports that say ISO 9001 all over them just filled out with a bunch of numbers, samples that have nothing to do with the actual shipment, 'decontenting' over time of you product with junk materials- it feels like endless loosing battle even if you are on to the tricks from where I sit.
