Reviews on Amazon are not very good.

Check out Walbro inline fuel pumps

Also, be careful. If your chassis has "returnless" fuel, the fuel pump control module will cause the pump to run hot.

I'm curious, is there a place in the fuel line you can just slide it in? Or do you have some new fittings to splice in the fuel line?

I could slide it in, by replacing the fuel filter

But the plan is couple the filter output to the pump input by fuel hose

Then connect the pump output to the quick connect line going forward that is/was on the filter output

I bought thick fuel hose supposedly rated for throttle body injection pressures

not yet
try again tomorrow, things keep happening to get in the way
i did get under and start figuring out how to run the wires
and i also unplugged the O2 sensor, and soaked the threads with 'Aero Kroil' penetrate, so i can replace it

I ran the wiring for the pump
Pump is not yet installed
Bump in the road
Bundy fitting is correct length from ridge up to end of hitting
But...behind the ridge back to pump is not the same length as OEM FORD FITTING/nipple
Careful measuring shows not enough room to insert disconnect tool if pump is coupled to Ford fuel line quick connect fittings
Will have to go with plan B, and use pieces of fuel hose to connect system together

just an update, project NOT yet completed
its been one 'error' (on my part) or one physical mechanical problem after the other
when i planned and started this project, it would have been nice to know that this was available, cut to needed lenght

[image]

this one is 3/8 but i found 5/16 at the parts store

quick connect to hose/tubing

auto parts stores have them in stock,
i could have used almost any pump with the correct pressure and flow rate and been done already (instead of looking for one that came with quick connect ends
as it is i'm going to need it anyway

[emoticon]

upper left quick connect is line from fuel tank, originally connected to input of fuel filter, now connected to fuel hose that loops around to inlet of fuel pump mounted above filter

hose on output of fuel pump loops around and connects to input of fuel filter

output of fuel filter remains stock , connecting to OEM female quick connect OF the fuel line going forward
