Electric fuel pump mounting

Going to be installing an electric fuel pump and I know it has to be as low to the bottom of the tank and within 2 feet but I would appreciate any pictures people have of theirs as I am going to have to fabricate a bracket to hold it and would like to see an existing one that works.

Thanks!

Re: Electric fuel pump mounting

I made up a nasty bracket out of angle iron and bolted it to the trunk since it was already patched up pretty poorly. Moving the system to another car and am going to try to come up with something a little cleaner.

Re: Electric fuel pump mounting

Mine is no where near as fancy as Steiner's. I simply used 2 pieces of flat aluminum stock and make a "sandwich" off the tank straps. I have neoprene between the outer flat and the bracket on the pump to aid in reducing noise/vibration. This was taken before I added a large Fram fuel filter inline.



I still need to re-route the hoses and swap to braided stainless as all the parts are sitting on the workbench.

Re: Electric fuel pump mounting

Pretty much the same here, made a "T" bracket to mount the pump to using rubber grommits to try to isolate the pump from the body of the car.





Sorry for the blurry pics.

Re: Electric fuel pump mounting

And mine was less fancy than the rest.

If you take Steiner's picture, look at the two left screws, I installed the pump up on the incline, bottom would be flush with his bracket.

Steiner, how low does it sit below the tank? Hate to be a pain but would you have a picture at ground level from the back of the car looking forward?

Thanks

Re: Electric fuel pump mounting

No problem. By the way, the tank strap anchor on the left had come free so I needed two of those bolts anyway ha ha.

I think I'm going to cut the mount so it'll sit a little higher and also put the pump and filter on the front side of the tank like the other guys have. I was thinking about road debris when I did it this way. Also, my ghetto return that I put in the sending unit didn't work out too well so now there is a bulkhead fitting just above the tank seam.







It looks pretty low but if you look from this angle you can see it's several inches above the bottom of the rear end.
