I have to drop my tank to adjust my sending unit. While I'm at it I want to install an Electric Fuel pump - noticed that some of you have done this mod. Eventually I'm gonna swap a 500 into my '63 so Now's as good as any. I read a good post on ModCad that used an oil pressure switch as a safety - a good idea!
Can ya help me out with some ?'s
What pump is the 'right one'? An OEM or something from Jegs or Summit? What kind of flow #'s / current draw am I looking for?
I like the idea of gutting the stock pump and having it there just for looks - Is that difficult? If I don't I'll need a block-off plate. I assume I'll have to make one - probably not available
Will I need a return line (G4C Carb)
I'm not sure if the oil pressure safety switch is also a sending unit. I want to keep my dash light functional. I guess the safety threads into the back of the engine where the sending unit goes? Will I be able to use both? Will I have to 'Y' that hole and use 2 devices there?
What other things should I be planning for? I intend to run it off a relay and will be running the safety.
Do I think too much??
Thanks for any help
