Re: EFI in tank fuel pump

The quick and simple is the original sender with the pump installed there. The return line can go in the filler neck with solder! Solder is the way the tank filler adapter is held on as is the vent tube.

I do not like to add anything to the tank it's self as you are then asking for a leak, no matter how good the adapter is. The other thing you need to look at is how hard is it to install and/or remove? Just because it took you 3 hours to get the tank and lines installed doesn't mean you won't have to take it back out again, how hard do you want to work?

I have installed Ray's style of tank. It is good work but you need to study what you need to get in order for it to fit back in the hole it was designed for. I did it using -6 AN lines! It took a while and several different 90 degree adapters to get it figured out. I then brought flex lines down to the hard firewall fittings. Easy access to get to the lines and the fuel pump and level sender connector. You will need to use a sealed connector, I use the GM Metripack.

You are right Ken, I have proved that more than once.

I used the carbureted fuel line as my return, and plumbed a new -6 line for feed.
It worked out pretty slick, although if I was going to make any changes, (and I might) it would have been to use S.S. hardline on the run down the tunnel pan instead of braided, as the S.S. is a lot smaller and much more "bulletproof", and
makes for a lot cleaner of an install.
