Re: Electric fuel pump in shuebox

If you do use hose, buy fuel injection type. CORN GAS WONT EAT IT UP.

Re: Spring Spreader needed or NO ???

the only thing I can add to this thread is, be SURE to support the frame with jack stans, as the shackle bolts hold the whole weight of the front end of your 46.

Re: block off plate

It has been recomened to use fuel injection rubber hose at any connection on your electric pump. Corn gas will eat up the old type hose. f.w.i.w.
