lift pump sticky?
Seems like everyone has a lift pump so now my LBZ wants one too. Since this is so popular I would think that there would be a sticky somewhere all about it but so far I haven't found it. Can someone point me to a good link?
My cursory googling I discovered some differences.
a the high end ones may have higher pressure settings
b. high end ones may have more than 1 filter? Maybe 1 for water 1 for filtering.
c high end ones have a separate recirc fuel line that goes back to the tank. I assume the cheap ones just use the same route that is used in stock ie, go thru the oem filter, thru cp3/4, bypass to tank when high pressure is not needed.
Some seem to have more complete kits or mount more easily?
One question I have, I would think you'd want to have minimal fuel in the tank when installing since a line has to be cut and fuel is gonna start draining fast. You better be ready to catch it and attach or plug it off.
Lots to learn.
besides just being cool with a lift pump I'm adding one to help (I hope) with a fuel starvation problem (I think) under heavy towing load. I'm guessing that the real problem is that the source fuel lines are collasping due to partial vaccuum.
