  • Fuel pump ? of a different sort.

    Out of curiousity, would there be any problem running a universal electric fuel pump? Like an out of tank unit. Trying to get around an obstical for an up comming project. Thanks

      You'd have to make the pressure would be the same (or a bit more) and make sure you still incorporate the return line.
      I can't think of anything else, but I'm not an expert on fuel pumps

        OK, cool. Thanks. I just want to make sure the ECU isn't gona flip out if I use a different pump.

            If the line pressure is higher you will have to remap or you will be running rich. The higher the line pressure is the more fuel goes in for the same injector duty time.

              I hadn't thought of that
              makes sense

                But there is a fuel pressure regulator and a return line, Art...

                  Wont the relief valve compensate for it, or the one that blows off and has the manifold vaccuum on it to keep the injector pressure relative to the manifold pressure? :dunno

                  (no manual here, but there is a relief valve in the system somewhere, as I've looked up the rail pressure before)

                    I don't think it's a go-cart

                      Ahh, good stuff. Thanks. My consern was that the ECU read off something in the fuel pump and removing it would cause a fault some where. I'm prepared to have to remap. Hell, I'm expecting it. BTW, anyone know the flow rating on the pump?

                      Good guess. I'll give you another. See if you can figure out what it is.

                              I got a guy in TN building me a frame for $250. I still have to add the motor mounts and acc. brakets but the hard part will be taken care of. I just got finished measuring the motor, wheels and forks to send to him. I was planning on doing the whole thing myself but I'm losing my garage so I won't have room to house the extra tools I'd need . I will be making the tank and other sheet metal for it though. reason for this thread.

                              oh and BTW
