Sedan Fuel Pump Install How To

Recommended Posts

Just did mine today but fitted the 400 LPH Walbro pump inside the standard bucket Because it is that much bigger it was a bit of a mission reshaping the bucket removing all the ribbing around the return pipes for the filter, I then in the end put the standard filter back on the walbro pump with the clips removed. The one that came with the 400 lph pump just wouldnt fit inside the canister. I think if I do it again I will just buy a 400 LPH pump and larger canister, will see how this one performs. (Im watching AFR closely)..

The BF had the bayonet clip in fittings instead of the screws and also just cut the factory wires off at the pump ends and soldered the spade terminals on directly to these wires, grey to +ve black to -ve no problems. , did the 360 loop in the fuel line so plenty of movement there actually better movement now than factory one... the fuel lines strangely enough only had a in and out no line for a carbon canister return,... found those clips easy to undo just light pressure with tiny screwdriver in the end next to the white pipe across three of the sides came awat easy as. and positve clip back on.

Hopefully someone can help me.... I found this thread excellent to get me to the point of getting the fuel pump out, but my FG MK2 sedan seems not to have the screws holding it in, rather a locked ring sort of thing... I've had a search around and can find plenty for the BA/BF but little in regards to the FG.

 

Has anyone taken a fuel pump out of the FG and if so can you give me any pointers on how to get this ring "unlocked"?? or if there is a thread somewhere I have missed, could you point me in that direction....

 

Cheers and thanks in advance

Just chucking a Walbro 255 in my BA. This thread was super helppful. All done, just need to grab some hose and clamps in the morning to finish it off. I'm going to replace the supply and return lines in the cradle.

A couple of questions that you lot might be able to help with:

1. Do you guys like to install the sleeve that comes with the pump or not worry?

2. I've got a few left over clips, washers, etc. and what looks like maybe an extension piece for the filter attachment. I'm assuming the kit caters for a range of installation scenarios and this is normal?

I found the quick connect hose fittings external to the cradle popped off almost straight away with a pair of needle nose pliers. But the flexible, corrugated lines inside the cradle were an absolute PITA to cut free.

Thanks for that. Why the corrugated? Just to help set the depth correctly without kinking a normal hose when installing, or a longer term reason?

it's a quite similar process, just more of a squeeze to fit it in. You'll be fine following the instructions in this thread.

it's just a bunch of screws around the edge of the circle mount.

for the fuel lines, there's a bit of finessing with where you apply the pressure (a pick set is a very valuable tool to use for those connectors) to get them off the 3 fuel line connections (make sure to re-connect them in the same order, e.g. mark which is which).

if you mean the bit of grey plastic over the top of the whole thing, just un-plug the obviously removable bit and then lever under the edges with a flat-head and pull upwards to remove it

You’ve done more complex “things” yet couldn’t understand how to remove a plastic cover with a rubber lip that has a big joining arrow on it ..........

 

or the fact it has an additional rubber insert that has the cable loom passing through that is removable also to put a finger in and pop upwards.......

 

I don't think im awesome, I know I’m awesome and talking down to you is only taken that way if taken in an offensive manner that wasn’t broadcast by myself, I was being honest and upfront and sux to be you getting offended by it “MATE” 

 

Keen to hear about the complexity of vehicle modifications you’ve partaken in that trumps this mountain of a task .....

Thought I would post in here instead of creating a new post, How are you guys going with the re wire and relay? I've just got my self a new turbo (Standard one gave in) so with the new turbo I've also got a new Walbro 460 and I've had a few people say you don't need to re wire...but id rather just do it right the first time and not have to look back. Where is the standard relay located on a FG Turbo? If someone has done it and could fill me in on where you guys are setting up the new relay would be excellent.

Hey Mate,

 

I fitted the 460 pump into the stock cradle on my bf series 2 xr6 turbo and left the factory wiring and relay, it has been a few months since fitting and I have had no problems yet. Also soldering or joining is not required to modify in tank harness as people have previously quoted, can simply un pick terminals from warbro harness and factory harness and adapt together . Hope this helps. Also I called walbro about upgrading wiring and relay and they told me it will be fine using factory wiring but do recommend upgrading it

I ran mine like that for a bit. No dramas and did notice a much stronger pump with the battery feed. You can twist wires if you like but soldering or repinning is better.

 

Pic of my deadly relay. I tek screwed it to the floor. I dunno if using bulkhead adapters and fatter wiring would be better to feed the pump out the relay? An auto elec can chime in on this.
