53 Stude/LS1 Fuel tank - Dec 26, 2005

The LS1 EFI requires significant fuel pressure to run properly and I have considered a number of options. One was to use my stock Studebaker tank and run an inline pump, I did not choose this because I thought the external pump would be noisy and since the stock tank is not baffled I could encounter fuel starvation problems. Another was to use an intank pump and modify the Studebaker tank for it too fit. The Studebaker tank was too shallow for the pump in stock form, so I would have to put a sump in it to make it deeper. The option I chose instead was to purchase a tank from Tanks Inc that is designed for a 49-52 Chevy. This tank is baffled and also is set up to use their own high performance in tank pump. I like the idea of having the pump in the tank, I believe the fuel will cool and quiet the pump some and this combination is designed to work together so that is one less think to have to figure out. The Tanks Inc will take the sending unit that works with my Dolphin Gauge so that is another plus. The filler is in the correct corner of the tank though I will have to do some fabrication to get the filler neck fitted. I will cover mounting in the next segment.
