Can anyone tell or send me to a good place for instructions for replacing my manual fuel pump with a electric one. I understand removing the old pump....but what is done with the hoses and what psi electric should i buy
Holley red pump is mostly used, some use cheaper.
From a past post.....
I'm using an electric fuel pump and love it! Napa Balkamp Universal Fuel Pump Kit: Part #610-1050; ~$36 out the door; 4-6 psi at 35GPH. Put it on the frame rail, just after your fuel selector valve, and let it push the fuel to the Fuel Filter.

Where did you pick off the power for the pump ?
Anything special in the routing of the wire ?
Can you leave the old mechanical pump in place and just run the electric in series? (As long as it doesn leak)

If you want a serious electric fuel pump that will outlast a holly by a few forevers, pickup a Facet dura lift, facet part #40223, you can get them from a Carrier Transcold refrigeration dealer, Carrier # 30-01108-01SV
They are the stock fuel pumps on new reefer units and are designed to lift 10 feet straight up, so you don't have to crawl around rigging it down on the frame( and have more wires down there to get snagged on brush), you can mount it up under the hood high, and it has a water seperator and inlet trash screen on it.
Holly's are nice for racing, but for long term street use, they don't hold up, and unlike some other performance pumps, they cannot be rebuilt on the side of the road, like say a Mallory, the Holly's have to be sent back to the factory .
