Question and Answer / Re: Electric Fuel Pump for EFI
« Last post by vangremlin on Today at 05:23:20 PM »
I have a throttle body fuel injection kit from Performance Fuel Injection Systems.  The kit came with an inline electric fuel pump, which pumps fuel to the throttle body, and the Eagle's return line is used to return excess fuel to the tank.  The kit has been used by a lot of Jeep owners, and several Eagle owners here on the Den.  I used an inline fuel pump recommended by the Jeepers rather than the one included in the kit because it is supposed to be quieter.

Regarding djm3452004's suggestion about using a Spirit or SX/4 tank, I don't know if that would provide the capability of adding an in-tank pump or not.  The opening for the sending unit on the SX/4 tank is on the front of the tank.  Also, if you wanted to go that way, you'd probably have to find a used tank, as I don't believe new ones are available.

Good luck!

Question and Answer / Re: Electric Fuel Pump for EFI

Curious question - I'm considering installing a Sniper EFI BBD setup on my car, and would need a high-pressure fuel pump & return line. When doing an EFI conversion, what have others done?

I have a Hyperfuel EFI in-tank pump I'm not using, but haven't really looked at how it would fit in the AMC tank. It drops in from the top of the tank & has AN fittings for send & return. Is there enough room above the tank to use something like this?

It's all just ideas right now. For the moment the Eagle is up on jackstands and I'm refurbing the brake & trans cooler lines.



I hate to say it, but I don't think there's enough room above the stock tank to install something like this.  The tank sits flush up against the truck floor.  The front of the tank is loosely "wrapped" in a steel shield that is held in place with the tank straps, so there's really no way to fit in that spot either.  I just reinstalled my stock tank this past weekend so I remember all this vividly.

One would have to build a depression into the top of the stock tank in order to recess the electric pump you've linked to.

BUT...I'm saying all this from the standpoint of an Eagle wagon tank.  I'm willing to bet a Spirit or SX4 tank would be smaller (meaning hopefully shorter) and could perhaps fit into the same space with the same straps for a wagon.  You'd lose fuel capacity, but could space the tank below the truck floor with blocks or whatever to allow a gap big enough for your electric pump.  If you positioned the tank properly, the rear tank fill could hopefully be in the same location as a stock tank.

This is all speculation, honestly.  Either way, if I'm looking at your aftermarket pump correctly, you're looking at a fair amount of work cutting into any steel fuel tank to make it fit.  Are you sure this pump wasn't intended for a fuel cell?

Sorry for not being much help --

The rubber seal(#41) goes under the nut. No steel washer.

See Epedia image in your earlier post


Understood, thank you!  I did understand the exploded view, but what is in a mfgr's. drawing and what works are sometimes (2) different things.  Since you've done what is pictured and it works, I'm good to go.


Thanks again!

The spline seal goes under the nut (keeps fluid from escaping from between the splines).  The other big lip seal goes under the flange (seals on the smooth part of the shaft).


Thank you for your reply, things finally coming into focus!

Last question (I hope) -- is there a steel washer that is supposed to be used under the nut, and over the spline seal?  Mine had no steel washer at all, but I'm not surprised considering the incorrect placement of the spline seal to begin with.


Thanks again --

David

Galvin's AMC/Rambler has replacement fuel sending units for $139 plus shipping, P/N 04-0700.

American Parts Depot has them as well for $135 plus shipping, which is actually down like $20 from where it was a month or so ago if I remember correctly.  (P/N 936 1503J)


Hope this helps!

Hi David

I started this post back in 2015 with the same problem.

I clicked on the morris 4x4 link and I don't see any image to confirm its the right seal. Your worn out seal is exactly what my problem was and replacing it solved the my leak problem. Here's the company I got mine from.

Its the same for a jeep check it out.

Good luck

Thank you for that input, that was exactly what I needed. 

So does the rubber spline seal go under the nut only, or under the yoke itself?  The spline seal on my car was located under the yoke.  I had seen from previous owner documentation on my car that the output shaft seal was replaced in 2015, but I'm betting the reason it was still leaking was the seal was placed under the wrong component!

Do you (or anyone) remember the order of assembly for the spline seal?  Thanks in advance!
