  • Trunk location for electric fuel pump?

    I have the Moss electric fuel pump. Currently installed on the frame near the gas tank.
    Not crazy about the pump exposed at that location and was thinking about moving it to the trunk at the location marked by the white circle.
    I know its a pusher type of pump so it needs to be in the back.

    Anyone else used this location for the pump?

    Other places you have located pump at the rear?

    thx

    With the outlet for the tank being where it is,it makes more sense to mount under the car and not run 2 lines in and out of the car

      Not really part of your question, but I feel a need to ask. Have you incorporated some type of inertia-operated fuel pump cut off switch, which would be activated in the event of a crash ? This safety measure would prevent fuel pump from continuing to operate and with a ruptured fuel line, could soak the vehicle and contents with fuel. Switches which activate in the 10-12 G range, so as to avoid pot-hole nuisance activation, are available at moderate cost.

        Thanks. Yes, have one on order.

      Those brackets where you've circled is where the PI TR6's fuel pump and filter are located. So, it worked for the factory. Also, the later PI 6's used an inertial cut off switch so you can track down one of those or as suggested pick up some type of aftermarket.

        I have EFI, so I have a high pressure pump and filter. They are mounted in the front corners of the spare wheel well. The inertial switch is mounted in the back left corner. The switch worked perfectly. I believe that the pump and filter should be protected from road debris damage.

          That's a great idea. Will take a look at that.

        Don't quote me on this but i think that is where the PI cars had their fuel pumps located.
