Shurflo 65psi on '76 Argosy?

I have an oppty to pick up a gently used Shurflo WP with all the bells and whistles that fits neatly into my beer budget. I have recently replaced ALL of my water lines with PEX and SharkBites...here's my question: this model Shurflo is a 65psi model. Will it be ok in my 26 Argy?

No one has advice to give on this post? Gasp! I realize water pumps aren't as sexy as polishing, but I do need some advice on this one. Pretty please?

I run the 65psi pump in my 2007 Classic. All factory plumbing. Surely your replacement job is as good as the AS line workers!!??

God, I hope so! I don't want to do that job again.

Thank you very much for the feedback. I will proceed to 65psi territory. I guess if it leaks, 65psi will just make it leak faster huh? Hahaha

Hey Phrunes,
Why not test your lines with air pressure first? Attach a tee with a pressure guage and a threaded tire air valve (from hardware store)?

That's a good idea! My primary concern were the tanks, not sure what they are rated. I used pex and gatorbites thruout, and am certain they are good north of 90psi.

There's no pressure in the tanks, Just lines, HW heater.
