Pump came in.....2 things concern me...one.....NO PLUG CAME WITH IT....and....the description says..."Type ROLLERVANE Volts 12 GPH Wide Open 40 PSI Shut Off 65-95 Ground NEG Location IN-TANK"
what the hell does that mean?
2) Roller Vane is the type of pump, this model flows 12 gallons per hour, wide open (full blast) with a 40 psi shut off or 65-95. Too vague to tell.
3) Google is your friend, you could figure this out I'm sure.
i think i just need to get another one....
Ya you will still need the low pressure in tank (transfer pump) unless you got a rabbit fuel tank and swapped that in there.
You will need a banjo fitting for the output side but there already should be one there.
You could actually replace that banjo fitting with a npt barbed fitting if you needed to.

For scale, CIS pumps will deliver enough fuel to run a vr6 with boost.
OK.....replaced the factory pump.....after a few key turns...got it running...some revving and allowing it to warm up and ooooh it sounded smooth.....so i drive it around the neighborhood a bit, come back to the house, and i go out again to get a few bucks in gas.....but i hear that duck-like whine again from the pump area......decide not to, and drive back....and low an behold...it shutters...again.....i ease it to a light, make my turn and get about 5 houses...shuttering and finally it stalls...THE EXACT SAME THING AS BEFORE!.....wait about 2 minutes, and start it back up.....drive it a few blacks to my road...shutters again and i just coast it into the driveway....
after a short hands-on inspection......of the noise....its the fuel accumulator making all the noise, judging by the vibration, which was consistent with noise....and the pump wasnt vibrating much at all........the pump isnt hot...but that is...WTF......could crud in the lines and tank be causing this issue????
someone please help me out this car is driving me nuts!!!
A plugged filter can cause the issues, the accumulator, and filter are suspect. If your tank is full of crud then there are a few possibilities....
Grounds, Grounds, Grounds Replace them things.
Divorces, Great Coffee, and Electrics, all start with GOOD Grounds.
Another Useless Ground Thread
I am a Commodian. I tell really Crappy jokes.
HAVE YOU CHECKED THE FAQ's ABOVE..PAGE 3 Thread 75?
im reading more posts...and it seems this accumulator and the lines going in and out are problem areas......im going to have to pull it all out again i think.....take it all apart...and inspect and clean everything....is the accumulator something that would need replacing....or can it be cleaned?
