Cheap Walbro upgrade!!
« on: November 08, 2010, 08:04:23 AM »
I just lost my stock fuel pump and found this deal on nasioc. Looks killer to me. Can you find them anywhere cheaper?

You'll need to post a link to the upgrade so we can see what you're looking at.

Ya I changed it. I figured that since im stage 2 now I probably have the fastest car in Lincoln! Lol

I'm gonna order this fuel pump tonight. Anyone wanna lend a hand with the install on Friday? I think I can do it with basic tools but an experienced hand would be appreciated.  ;D

Pretty good how to..

http://www.scoobymods.com/mod-best-damn-walbro-fuel-t8426.html

On the several cars I have done, there is no space between the pump and the hard line, so you have to cut a piece of hose so short it will fit all the way on the pump nipple, line up the pump with the hard line, then walk the short hose over the joint.

I cannot find the exact how do I used.. :(

I'm going to try to do it on Friday but odds are, I won't have the fuel pump until Monday. I'll post on here when I get tracking confirmation number.

Jeff and I did mine...easy peezy.  Just be careful when taking the small bolts out of the cover and parts.  Gets a little tricky.  Have some rags handy also, in case.

I like to throw a rag over the top of the tank, so you don't just fume up everywhere.  I think the fire risk is a little over rated, but I wold not do anything to encourage a spark or flame.

True that!  And that is an awsome price if the install kit is included!

^^^^^

My new fuel pump came today. We pulled the seats and pulled out the old pump. Only to realize that the plastic nipple had snapped off during shipping.  :angry:
