mounting of electric fuel pump xy

Hi guys

just purhased xy rep, electric fuel pump was mounted up under rear of rhs wheel well next to spring hanger and very close to exhaust system.could easy turned very nasty especialy with just plan old fuel hose running around inside of wheel arch.
I have removed pump and have looked at putting it basically up above diff housing towards rear of car on and offset to the lhs for clearance so it is inbeteew brake asembly and diff centre above axle tube seems to be enough clearance.
Another idea is to bluid a enclosed section in the boot, down inside the rear quarter panel lhs as this would keep out of the weather not that it goes out it the rain.
I would be finish the plumbing off with high quaitly braded line to the carb.
If anyone has been though this process or has any good ideas that would be great.
Also where or can i get full size fuel tank without tyre well in tank .

cheers stuguts _xy

Re: mounting of electric fuel pump xy

I'm not sure running a braided line that far is legal in any state in vic.....not for fuel anyway.
Your idea of putting it inside the quarter panel is good, but you would need adequate rubbers on the inlet/outlet holes to avoid chafing of the lines, and adequate drainage for a leak style failure.

I have seen many elec pumps mounted in the engine bay, with much success.

Cheers
Jas

Re: mounting of electric fuel pump xy

Just FYI:

Holley elec pumps are made to be mounted below or as near to below, the fuel level to work most efficiently. They "push" fuel better than they "suck" fuel.

On my mustang I had to mount it low on the spare tire well for it to work properly. I think mounting it in the engine bay, would create un-needed "stress" on the pump and may affect pump life.

Re: mounting of electric fuel pump xy

Gday STU i have tried many positions and am still bloody trying to get it right. I've tried mounting my pump on the inside and outside of the boot near the diff arch. I dont like the pump near the wheel wells. side impact. I have a cell and am mounting the pump in the recess where the tank was. Good luck and let us know what you decide on.
