DO NOT cut to get to the fuel tank with the fuel tank in place at least take the straps down and cut it if not remove it all the way

This is an easy way to get a return fuel system, it worked on mine for a long time , with this set up you can easy replace the stock pump with a 255 LPH walbro

This isnt for everyone to do and any time your working around GAS you need to be VERY CAREFULL

The only Diff between how I figured this out and whats on mine and his , Is that I have a 255LPH walbro and no B-A-P

I dont think his B-A-P is needed but the fuel PSI will need to be watched to find that out something I guess I should of looked into why it was on the dyno

Dont cut corners or cost on this use good stuff and make sure you use EFI fuel hose in the tank regular fuel hose wont hold up A carb regulator will not work it must be a EFI regulator

So if the 255 LPH walbro pump is used, another fuel pump is not necessary, or still requires another one?

The sloshing of the fuel in the tank is still a problem then?

yes the sloshing is still a problem. the 255 goes in place of the stock one and looks just like it.

Will the pump take that constant stress? I would think it would fail a lot sooner than normal...
