Re: Fuel Pump

I did connect the wire to the small post to the right side of the relay. I used my volt meter to check which to connect to when the key was turned on, that was the only one that I found I did not check for one that was active when the starter engaged. I can change this very easy if the other is best...

Re: Fuel Pump

Got everything set up and wanted to try it out before writing anything. I ran the electric wire over from the pump on the left fender well to the right side and hooked it up to the starter relay on the right fender well that is only on when the key is on. I put a fuse and a on/off switch on this lin...

Re: Fuel Pump

Paul.... I had to take some time off to get in a camping trip but I did get the pump set up like I told you before. I mounted it on the inside left fender close to where the man. pump is. I put longer bolts on it and added maybe 3/4" of rubber padding. After getting the inlet gas hose hooked up I pu...

Re: Fuel Pump

Thanks Paul...I am now back to the living side and really would like to get this Bronco running before I go down again...lol After reading all this hookup I am not sure that I am up to all this. The pump itself is not too bad but the relay and all is a little much for this old guy. I did order the 8...

Re: Fuel Pump

Thanks again Paul for all your help. I probably would replace the entire sending unit along with new fuel lines. All this will have to wait a little while as I have some health problems that I need to take care of first. This will give me some time to order all the parts I will need and have them re...

Re: Fuel Pump

Thanks Paul Can you let me know where I can get either the Mr Gasket or the Edelbrock and what model to get for the 302 Bronco. Also said before I am now 80 years young and would really like something that I could install easy and hope they have some good directions to work with.

Re: Fuel Pump

Thanks Paul....I think I will try a fuel shut off valve below the fuel filter . I don't drive this Bronco much and it is always in the garage so I don't mind opening the hood and switch the valve. I may even install one between the fuel pump and the fuel tank. It doesn't take much to switch them as ...

Re: Fuel Pump

Both the Bronco and the Jeep have carbs. It seems that the bowl will be empty faster than that. It will only take less than 1 day for the Bronco to drain and maybe 2 days for the Jeep to drain...This is a real bummer as the vehicle will not start unless you put some fuel into the carb or use startin...

What would cause the fuel to drain out of the fuel filter when the engine is not running ? I have checked all over and cannot find any leaks anywhere. I installed a new fuel pump and it does the same thing. If you put some fuel into the carb and get the engine to run it will fill the filter and will...
