Yeah, I don't think I would want to be out in the snow putting on a fuel pump either. as for the placement, you will need to go between the tank switching valve and the manual pump. I would put it as close to the switching valve as possible. The electric power for the electric pump may be robbed from the key on hot wire to the switching vavle or as I did mine from the hot side of the coil when key is on.You will need to se if there is a good hot wire at the switching valve first and what amperage the fuse is, and check the guage of the wire to see if it can carry the extra load. If not, I would run the wire to the hot side of coil. If you want, you can also run a toggle switch to the pump, but I would hate for you to accidentally leave the switch on when you shut off the engine. Thats why I have mine at the coil, It comes on with the key. As fot the hole in the floor for access to the master cylinder, don't blame you. I would open it up a little also. be careful not to cut anything important. well all for now. Big Mike
Well back at the computer again, the heat wave in over again HAHAHAHA. They have a saying in oklahoma, If you don't like the weather, stick aroun, it will change in a minute.
Just curious if you got the manual fuel pump on. or is it to cold in you neck of the woods to mess with it. haven't heard from you in a couple of days. just wondering.
As for the elictric fuel pump, I didn't relly explain on how or were to install it. I mounted mine on the frame rail just over the rear axle. I cut a piece out of the metal fuel line and ran the electrical wire to the hot side of the coil. Make sure you have a fuse inline about 8 to 10 inches from the coil for safety purposses. The ground you can use the frame to ground the pump. Good luck, and if you need to call me here in my # 405-812-8204 Big mike
Send me all the q's you have, I hope I have the answers, I am retired but still remember a lot. Plus I am a GearHead. That seems to help a lot... Plus the 23+ years in a Mopar shop seem to help also. Big Mike
Thanks for the welcome Al, I do get a lot of attention with the old girl. No mine doesn't have a 440 in it, but a 318 believe it or not. It does have the 727 trans though. The 318 only has a 2 barrel carb on it but it still accelerates pretty good and gets fair mileage too.
