I have just removed the pickup from the tank in my XE falcon... I have installed a BG 220 pump with external bypass and was having some issues...
After driving it hard for about 30mins it would run out of fuel, the pump would stop priming.. I had to wait for the pump to cool down and it would prime then i could continue home.
I thought it was the filter maybe at the bottom of the pickup, but after taking the pickup out, I have reliased the return pipe is either broken or never went to the bottom :( so the return fuel would have been getting air raided which would not have helped....
i also removed the filter and tried to run water through it, almost water proof :(
Ok, so the plan is to have someone remove the two tube peices and braise in some new larger tube... I know people have done this before but is there a way of saving the sender unit? what exactly stuffs them, just the heat?
what size tube have you guys managed to get in there? and who did you use?
i live in a fairly small town and i think it would have to be a metal turner or radiator shop for this job, not sure... who'd you use?
cheers all, can't wait to get this small problem fixed as i havn't had fun hitting 6k rpm for ages!!! I did at powercruise, but had fuel dramas all day which kinda almost stuffed the fun
Also these show a bit;
