Electric fuel pump install on a carburetor car

Postby Qwyndai » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:17 am

Hello,
I have decided to install a low pressure electric fuel pump on my Type3 https://bestarny.com/electric-fuel-pumps-for-carb/ , for a number of reasons (vapor lock, the ability to prime my carbs after sitting for a long period, a cleaner look of the engine bay, the fact that you cannot find locally mechanical pumps, only electric ones and so on.).

Does anybody have pictures of an aftermarket electric pump installation? I am looking for ideeas of how to mount it below the fuel tank in a way that is both safe and does not require drilling any part of the car's body.

Thanks in advance.

Don't know if this will help or not, but this is how I mounted my filters and pump to my fuel tank several years ago. This is a FI setup, but a low pressure carb setup wouldn't be much different. First two photos are before I installed it, the last is of it mounted in the car. A fiberglass shell covered the tank while on the track.
