Re: Electrictric Fuel Pump - Where to Mount?



I have a Carter pump on my early hemi powered 32 Ford and just like most electric pumps they are better pushers than suckers.. if you get my drift.  Sounds like your mounting position is too high.  For the pump to function optimally it needs to be mounted close and level or slightly lower than the output fitting on the tank which will allow the fuel to gravity feed to the pump. This ensures the pump will self prime when you turn the key and allows it to push the fuel better because it doesn't have to suck so hard to get the fuel out of the tank.

I've got a carter electric fuel pump mounted on my '65 Belvedere in the axle housing area behind the outside of the back seat area.  This is pretty much  even with the stock gas tank - maybe a tad higher. I do want to maintain the stock tank and the space between the frame rails and the gas tank to run the exhaust.

So, the questions are - is the current location okay (not too much suction lift?) and where else have others mounted them on similar cars? It's currently a leaf spring drag car but I see it back on the street in a few years with an engine with a less demanding fuel need.

Did I mention that the Carter needs to be replaced because testing yesterday revealed that the fuel pressure dropped to 4 to 4.5 psi from 7 psi once I went over 5000 RPM.
