Electric fuel pump
« on: May 10, 2021, 05:05:00 pm »
Hi guys just wondering if anyone can recommend a quite external electric fuel pump I can fit to my 66 coupe It gets abit annoying hearing my pump whining or whirring away.

Thanks,

Why are you running an electric pump anyway ? . A stock pump will do the job .

I like my electric fuel pump.
No cranking to get fuel to carb.
Also have cutoff switch for anti theft.
Got a Facet external on my car.
Just requires cutoff switch in case of accident.

Where have you got the pump mounted? My 66 has an old electric pump (not connected) mounted next to the fuel tank, I found it when I had the car up on a hoist when I was checking it before I brought it.

The pump was there when i bought it, its mounted next to the tank.
I will have a thorough look and make sure its not vibrating against the tank or the body but it just seems a noisy unit.

Hi all, I found this on the web!
May help if you're interested!

I can guarantee they'll be quieter than a Bosch 044!

I've got a mallory 110 electric pump that I find quiet enough.

I mounted it using a set of FJ Holden radiator bolts that have a rubber center section to isolate vibration.
Works pretty well.

I used an electric pump as I was having vapour lock issues in Darwin's heat and the electric pump allowed me to run a return style system to keep the fuel cooler, solved all my issues.

I'm recessing a BA Falcon pump assembly in a new 22g tank for mine.

Keeps the pump cooler, quieter and hidden away.
