FC Electric Fuel Pump Location
Posted by: The Stig ()

It is time to install an electric fuel pump in my rampside. I have put plenty in cars over the years. Never on an FC though. Looking for a good location to put it. I have a block off plug and a controller ready to go in with it.

Since the FC tank has the fuel come out on top... I'd mount it in the most convenient area...

I put mine right on the "floor frame" next to the right side rear of the tank. I also mounted mine in some rubber mounts to reduce noise and vibration.

On FCs, I mount to the east/west bulkhead just behind the tank.

Keep in mind electric pumps are made to push not pull. While some work back in the engine compartment that is not the ideal place. On the FC Jim B has the answer. I think I found that you could even fit one forward of the bulkhead next to the tank where the long rubber hose is.

On a side note, I never hard mount the electric pumps. If you want to hear a drum beating all the time use a clamp to mount the pump. You just made a speaker and you are in the middle of it!
