Re: Electrictric Fuel Pump - Where to Mount?



Don,
I ran two Holley blue pumps with success but got tired of the noise. Replaced both with one of the Holley rotary vane style pump and found much less noise! I used the smaller of the two sizes and just squeak by for top end pressure. I am using 1/2" hard line and a Fram canister filter after the pump (it may be too low in flow capability). If you are heading for low 11's get the larger size pump, otherwise the smaller size will probably suffice.

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.
