efi pump mount location
#1
Hi guys
I bought used fitech EFI 600 hp system with inline fuel pump.
can someone tell me what is the common mount location for fuel pump and pre-filter on 71-73?
manual states that pump and pre-filter must be placed as low as the lowest point of the tank and within 2 feet away from it.

Bottom of my fuel tank is way below any frame mounting points so I have no idea where to mount it
any suggestions?
thanks
Alex

For my sniper, had to build a bracket/casing for the pump.

Here's what I did with my Holley inline pump.  It'll be feeding an Edelbrock E-Street high-pressure pump/reservoir ahead of the EFI itself.  Right now, it's doing a phenomenal job keeping the 600cfm Performer carb happy.

I mounted it up inside the rear wheel well - there's space between the inner wheel house and actual rear frame rail (unless you're tubbed, that is).

Also made a rock shield for it out of someone's left over under-shroud.  I found it after someone changed their oil at the Auto Hobby Shop and threw it away.

I'm also using the standard fuel sending unit/pick-up inside the tank.

Hope this helps.

I already have electric low pressure pump hooked up at the rear frame rail however it is above the bottom of the fuel tank

I might have to fabricate something to suspended new efi pump below frame rail so it is closer to the bottom of the tank
Thanks for ideas

I was thinking a good place to mount the Fuel Commander is where the blue emissions can went. You won't need it with EFI, so Its a nice spot for that.

Thats exactly where i placed my sump pump. I have Robbmc's one. I used the vent hose as a return hose. You can see my thread for all the details. I dont have a link right now.
Things to keep in mind:
-You may want to drill the vent port at the top of the fuel tank to allow for free flow of fuel if using it as a return line. I adapted an old sending unit to replace the vent port. These sump pumps return little fuel through the return line compared to a standard fuel pump. On that thought you have to allow venting of the tank. In my case is through the filler cap.
-I insulated the bottom of the fuel pump tank to protect it from the heat of my headers. I did this even though my headers are ceramic coated.
-Use a pre filter and post filter.
-I added a fuse between the EFI unit and the pump.

The tank still needs to be vented, as does the Fuel Command Center.

My question was regarding inline fuel pump not efi command center....

Good info btw. I might have to go that route if I cant find good location for inline fuel pump
