well after running dry on one of the tanks (next task will be to remove tanks and put new tube in so I can use entire tank) as I got to the gas station and getting stuck there for about 30 minutes. well I was motivated to install the electric fuel pump.
So did it today took me about 4 hours (two hours wiring behind the dash and 2 under the truck), I hooked it up to a switch that has three positions, off, take power from the brake, and one from accessories when key on. I also put a led light in when the pump is on.
I am so glad I did this, after installing it I turned it on and it was a condition like running out of fuel because it was drained as I hooked it in. I stepped on the brake saw my LED turn on, and heard the pump kick on, (very loud) and could even hear a different tone (got quieter) when the fuel was at the pump, let it stay on for another 2 minutes and the truck turned over right away. Vs risking over use/heating of a starter and being stuck at the gas station or where ever.
I am thrilled. next to deal with the fuel tank pick ups.
truck still runs fine without electric pump on driving down the road, but did not do the highway high speed test yet.
