if the solenoid is hooked up right but you have the fuel lines hooked up backwards you may be overworking the electric fuel pump by trying to pump fuel through the return line. hmmmm.... that sounds reasonable, it makes it easier for me if its written down LOL

Just a wild guess but probobly the bottom because that would be where the water would settle out. I would assume the feed line would come from the top but I don't know for sure.

yeah i got it figured out, after i read my reply i went out and tried it LOL and it worked.... the bottom line is the feed line and it is noticeably bigger than the return line. and now that the fuel can be pumped into the element the solenoid is not overheating anymore. everything was hooked up right, i just had the fuel lines hooked up backwards down there at the crossmember... thats where i unhooked them to change the engine..... but didn't remember what went where.lol

Draw a picture next time hahaha, glad you got it fixed up, something we should all keep in mind when we are gleefully ripping things apart.
