Haven't got too much done since the last entry, easter weekend was shot, as I was out of town, And the lady's car has been acting up..along with her moms car.. and her sister car (does it ever end?). But on to my car.
I couldn't help but to see if this 11.5 in. monster would fit under the hood.. and it does! That's less work for me! And it looks real good.
I have the hardline in place, clamped in, just need to trim them to size. I bought the wrong fitting so I'll wait till I get that.
For the pump I modified the tank (after it sat outside for 2 weeks). I chieseled the locking ring off, and sawed a 4-1/2 in hole for the new pump set-up.
I made a fancy filter mount, and plan on getting the sender on the new pump unit this week.. will post pictures soon!
Here is the intank pump/baffle system I purchased (which is should have just made).
When I pulled my tank, to my surprise it was already equipt with a baffle just behind the existing pickup/sending unit. Which unfortunatly adds confusion to my previous plans.
The installation instructions for the unit I bought (see picture) are odd, the recommend mounting the system to the rear corner of the tank, which would be unsatisfactory with the existing baffle. The recommended orientation is odd. So im trying to figure out how I want to mount this thing (or maybe make my own) to keep fuel at the pickup.
I also plan on mounting my original sender to this.. Havn't look to far into that yet though.
