Fuel Sump Install

Working on installing my XDP fuel sump. The instructions say to install it on a flat area near the center of the tank. On my 38 gallon tank the only flat spot big enough is at the rear of the tank. Anyone else have any insight as to where the best place to put the sump is?

I know we sumped our mustang tanks in the rear. Fuel is forced to the rear as you travel. I would think as long as its the lowest point it should be fine in the rear

I mounted mine directly under the pickup tube. There is a circle in the center of the tank that is 3" it worked out really well.


Don't use the gasket that came with the xdp sump it will leak, I used permatex grey and it has been holding fine.

That's where I ended up putting it. After looking at it a bit more and realized it seals on the outside not inside, and the outside is flat.

Had to remove the bottom of the stock suction tube though because it then hit the inside ring of the sump.

I used the gasket but also used liberal amounts of Loctite oil and gas sealant/adhesive on both sides of it. Hopefully it won't leak! Thanks!

Good to know. As extra insurance/peace of mind, I used Ford RTV sealant around the outside seal today. No fuel in the tank yet, that's tomorrow. Have to do some research about putting the skid plate back on. I think somebody did it utilizing spacers and longer bolts.

I just took the cutting torch and cut a hole for the sump in the skid plate, nothing fancy. I was in a hurry. May go back and pretty it up later.
