I hate defective parts!

So the Holley ‘Blue’ pump I originally installed ended up being junk, it was leaking fuel out of the weep hole on the side of the pump body. This is a common issue with them I found out after some quick searching. So it’s going back and has been replaced with an Edelbrock Quiet-Flow 120GPH pump mounted in the same location. This required me to make a new feed line coming down from the cell, luckily I had enough left of pushloc hose to get the job done.

More fuel system parts

More parts arrived today. Jegs 200 series Pushloc hose and hose ends. I will be running -8 from the fuel cell to the filter, then -6 from the pump to the regulator and a -6 from the regulator back to the fuel cell. I also ordered a Painless Wiring electric fuel pump relay kit and some -6 cushion clamps. I will have enough hose left over for any modifications down the road. Read more

Making new connections

I ordered some weatherpack connectors for rewiring the engine harness, as well as hooking up some of the new accessories. After ordering all of the ones above, I found a much cheaper source on eBay, and proceeded to order another $70 worth of connectors, which is more than enough to finish the build and give me plenty of spares. I think it will make for a much cleaner look and should prevent any annoying electrical gremlins in the future.
