fuel tank pick up/return??

ive been under the corty most of the day putting in the fuel return line for the efi system, but have no idea about the tank that is in it. if anyone recognises the thing it wouild be great. i just want to know which is the fuel return and fuel pickup.
and that red wire i guess is a fuel level sensor right?

link to picture...http://www.fordgallery.com/showphoto...cat/500/page/1

gotta love digital camera's, bought it a few days ago, and had to recharge the batteries every other night so far!!

also i need a small electric pump to pump into the surge tank, thats nice and cheap too, any ideas?

thanks fellas.

Re: fuel tank pick up/return??

It looks like the standard tank. It's been a while, but from memory one is the outlet, and the other is for the charcoal cainster.
For the fuel pump, any low pressure pump should do. If you like them quiet (most are extremely noisy), try an SU electric pump.

Re: fuel tank pick up/return??

In that pic that u show. One is the Fuel Delivery line and the other is the return line. the charcoal canister has a Connection somewere else on the tank I would think the long one is for fuel Delivery. Id double check Just take out the sender unit.

Re: fuel tank pick up/return??

see other thread for pics - i guess it could, by clamping onto the intake and outlet.

Re: fuel tank pick up/return??

I dont see why it couldnt be used inline. You would have to make sure there is a filter before it.
