wlabros usually do the trick. a 190 will be fine though unless you plan on forced induction. unless you plan on getting real serious. but either way it wont hurt to go big.

+1 What he said. A to large pump will just over circulate and warm up the fuel, which is not a good thing with gasoline.


Walbro makes most of the fuel pumps anyways, so you are good to go with them.

Ok went to drop tank,this is probably stupid but hey, does it take a special wrench to get drivers side bolt off? You can see it from a hole in hatch, but it sits in there to where you can't get a wrench on it .confused....... I know should be easy just can't get to it.any suggestion?

If I'm remembering right there should just be 2 bolts between the axle and tank. Remove the filler neck and take out the 2 bolts holding the tank straps under the car.

Yes, found them, one you can get topassenger side easy, other is a pita, can't get to bolt on top as pics show. Wrench won't go in to seat on nut

Maybe you can get lucky and hit it quick and with force and bust it loose.. Also a buddy to hold it still with like a flat head screw driver or whatever you can hold it still with.. But you will prob need a hand

Trying to get something in there, I even bent a wrench to fit in there but hard to hold

Re: Fuel pump

Do you have a "crow foot wrench" ?

It is an open or closed wrench that fits on the end of a ratchet or extension.

It may be easier to just open up the hole and then find a bigger chassis hole plug when you are done.

Yes do have crows foot but can't get head in hole. Bigger hole was last option, but looks like have to resort to it

Looking at the pics I really don't see any alternative.
If you have a body or chassis plug available I would try to size it to fit if possible.

i would also try to mount it factory on reinstallation so if you have problem again the job will be easier

pull the fuel line off at the filter and see if you get fuel there. and check for kinked lines.
