Anyone come across this problem or have any ideas? Well-----I ended up wiring a new in line pump for the front fuel tank. Every couple of weeks it would start leaking gas out from the top of the front tank. I have since discovered that even with the switch disconnected that the rear and front in tank pumps are energised when the engine is running. To reduce risk of contaminating the replacement pump, Delphi recommends cleaning the fuel tank before installing a new pump. I am going with new wire properly fused---I'll solder a new extended fuse holder to the bus on the back of the fuse block, run 2 inline fuel pumps from the on-off-on switch and remove the valve altogether. NewUsedFilter selectedNewUsedList, null ; newUsedFilter.
There was a front and rear feed hose--which are larger diameter than the front and rear return hoses. ColorFilter selectedColorList, 'exteriorColorFilter', 'exteriorColorName', 'Color', 'colors', null ; colorFilter. I can't see the valve as the culprit of the original problem as the gas guage is wired separately from the valve--so am assuming the front tank pump and sending unit is the problem as the guage dropped to empty when I switched to the front tank. To reduce risk of contaminating the replacement pump, Delphi recommends cleaning the fuel tank before installing a new pump. I stopped to fill up and asked to fill the front as well as the rear.
But that isn't the case, as well the wiring has been played with before at some point, so I am uncertain of what the setup is at this point. There is a thread on this with far more detail here: i need a beater 4x4 truck and i came across an old badass 85 ford f250. It will sit all through a Minnesota winter and fire right up in the spring, couple of turns and right into idle. Had it been fuel injected the lines would have been all plastic and a lot harder to rig. If not I'll watch the odometer. Strangely you mentioned spray foam over the tanks. Every single pump is 100% tested throughout the entire manufacturing process for worry free, out of the box performance.
I can do the same for the front pump---but may need to drop the tank and install a new pump if it was indeed shot. Its possible you have a oddball tho. I think the second line on the rear tank is emission related. Seems to be working so far. Your problem sounds strange tho. I'll update how things went.
If its fuel injection i strongly suggest any rigging at all as your going to have to deal with fuel return issues also with fuel injection. I was leaning toward the fuel pump being the problem but can't understand why the gas guage doesn't read full instead of empty? It was badly corroded in the fuse block and is no longer usable. I remember a 87 we had that the front pump went bad and we only ran off the rear tank. Each tank has a pump and it also has that pump. Regular, original-style models can be enhanced with exterior paint, fenders and windows to create a more stylish mode of transport.
The Commercial Areas of the Emporiums are wide open - you can post as many threads as you would like there. That should get me running at least on the rear tank but unsure if the gas guage will function. If I select the front tank using the dash switch the gas guage drops to dead empty and the engine dies as soon as the fuel in the carb is used up. Any ideas or advice on what my best option is? Walking the line between what was considered spamming and what businesses wanted to communicate was sometimes clouded and at the minimum confusing for business and members in general. From what I can find online there is a separate electric fuel pump in each tank. Its working for now, but I noticed someone mentioned the return leads to the front tank.
I have a 1989 F-250 with a 460 and it'll pass anything but a gas station. It's the only one I could find online. Thanks, Jake I thought the 460 in that year didnt have fuel injection. Be sure to check them all. To reduce risk of contaminating the replacement pump, Delphi recommends cleaning the fuel tank before installing a new pump. I am planning to tap into a switched power wire at the fuse block, fuse it and run a new power wire and tap into the power wire for the rear fuel pump.
It is not fuel injected. Every single pump is 100% tested throughout the entire manufacturing process for worry free, out of the box performance. I think we payed 350 or so for a rebuilt one 20 years ago. Thanks again I think there is a return line for each tank-----and if you accidentally hook the rear return line to the front tank or vice versa, your rear tank that you hooked up to the in line pump will slowly fill the front tank through the return line. My front tank has some issue where it does not ventilate and becomes highly pressurized, which I believe in turn destroyed the fuel pump. And fuel level sender switching is often just switching grounds.
Fuel injected models return there. Im wondering if I should add a stronger fuel pump as it is working hard. Maybe look around for a plugged line dealing with emissions. There has been rewiring and splices done throughout the wiring so suspect there has been problems before. You have to remember you are asking a lot from one electric pump to push and pull the gas that far to the engine.
