Inline fuel pump install question?

Hey guys.
Im on the process of installing a external inline walbro fuel pump for my camaro.
I like to know the rule of mounting the pump?
where is the best location to mount the fuel pump?
does it have to be below the tank? how far away can the pump be mounted away from the pick up tube?


thank you

Eric

Re: Inline fuel pump install question?

For best results it should be mounted as close to the gas tank as possible, below the lowest part of the tank. Some people put them up further along the side rails somewhere or even in the engine compartment(not the best location). Best to use a relay and some kind of safety shut off switch, either a an oil pressure type switch, or an inertia switch(found on Mustangs and F150's, $10 from a junkyard), just to be on the safe side.
