Fuel Pump Installation
9 fuel pump installation :
To install an electric fuel pump, first of all, you want to disconnect your battery for safety; you are going to need a fuel pump aluminum plug, and a fitting, both available in the "fuel system" section .Check pix of engine compartment below . For the ground wire, you can use the bolt that secures the fuel pump against the frame. For the hot wire, you can run it behind the gas tank and insert through the speedometer cable grommet, run it all the way to the fuse box, find a fuse that is going to be on when the ignition is on. Connect the hot wire to this fuse, so that the fuel pump will turn on when you start the car, and off when you shut it off. I know that many Corvair owners install the electric fuel pump a little differently, but this is the way I do it here in the shop, I find it easy and reliable. Note : you might not be able to listen to the radio,when the car is in "park", because the fuel pump will still be on. I will post more details about that soon.
above, you see the fitting already installed, it replaces the outlet tube that used to connect to the stock fuel pump.
Brass fitting and aluminum fuel pump plug and o'ring available in " fuel System" category.
