Hi,

I'm staying tonight on the property of the owner of a 95' Bounder on a F53 chassis that I want to buy, but was parked 10 years ago and has a dead fuel pump. I need to leave ASAP so I don't have time to wait for the shipping of the original intank fuel pump so trying to find a quick fix I found on this forum a post from the member 'Dirt Rod' saying that an inline pump is not only possible but better.

I sent him an email but the address is gone so I'm asking here if somebody can forward me the information by email: juanetchevers from the most popular email that starts with g.

Thank you!

The fuel pumps used in 1995 and earlier F53 chassis is a gerotor style pump and does NOT pass fuel well when not running. Same design as the old Ford oil pumps. An external pump may not work well. 1996 and later used turbine style pumps.

You're welcome and I hope the info gets the rig going for you. The one I installed worked well for saving a trip to the Grand Canyon and getting the motorhome back to upstate NY. One time saver I did at the time was to use a toggle switch temporarily attached under the edge of the dash to control the pump, switching it on just before starting the engine. I updated it to use the relay for automatic operation later.

I would give proper credit for the PDF and other info if I had any idea where I got it. If anyone claims it thanks for the assist! [emoticon]

Thanks everybody!

Can anyone confirm if I can split the dead in tank wiring and use the same wires fior the new external fuel pump? I'm trying to avoid losing time with new relays, fuses, connectors, etc.

I have been watching this post. I have a 1993 p30 with same problem. Would this fix work for my fuel pump? 1993 Itasca Sunrise.
