Inline electric fuel pump, 1997 ford F53, 460

I have read on previous post and responses to some of my post in the last few days that when the fuel pump is not working correctly people have installed a inline electric fuel pump and I woundering if someone can give me some advice on which one to buy. I am not able to replace the fuel pump and people have said that this is a good option for a temporary fix.

Any advice would be welcomed.

Answered in your other post.

BTW, for future reference, questions specifically related to the chassis would be better posted in the Ford Motorhome Chassis Forum. You'll get better, more focused responses.

Is your engine multi-point fuel injected, throttle body injected or carb? all three of these need a different fuel pump pressure. Also most original fuel pumps are now in the tank, it seems the easy solution is just replace the stock fuel pump and keep the original set-up?

in some cases... when the in tank pump fails your in line pump won't be able to draw fuel through the bad pump in the tank.. I had this issue trying to use a electric pump to help....

On some of the older rigs where there is a lift pump on the engine, you can install a frame mounted pump and it will push fuel through the bad pump to the engine..

Try either SummitRacing.com, Jegs.com, and Amazon... I've used a Holley Red Pump... 12-801-1 is the part number...

Hope this helps...

Google ES2000 pump, it should work, but as said above might not pull thru the old pump. Best to drop the tank and replace it.

I agree....

I agree with what you all are saying and shortcuts are nice sometimes but not with the fuel lines and pressure. I have a few more tests to do before I actually dropped the tank. Thanks for your honest advice
