After discovering a leak in the stock radiator this weekend, I bit the bullet and bought a new one. It’s now installed and the engine is filled and no leaks! Still need to find a belt for the PS pump and water pump so I can run it up to temp and fill the transmission and check for leaks. Read more
Here are some photos of the fuel system, the fuel cell, new lines and new Edelbrock pump. 12 Gallon RCI pro-street fuel cell with -8 outlets and a -6 return. I still need to plumb up the vent line. Read more
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.
Scored this brand new Tach on eBay the other night for $71! Read more
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
