Holley projection question

Hey guys,

I have a couple of questions and I was hoping someone might have some experience in this field.

I am putting on a used Holley projection setup on my CJ7 with a 360. The harness has been modified and installed. Now I just need to put in the pump.

Holley specifically states that the fuel pump is gravity fed and must be installed so it is located lower (or as low as) the lowest part of the fuel tank. Unfortunately, there is no place on my frame that is lower than the tank. Can I mount it higher? If not, what have others done.

I have a Tahoe and a GMC van, both with pumps in the tank. I was wondering if anyone has heard of a mod to a factory Jeep 20 poly tank that would accept an electric pump from another application, such as a chevy or ford...

Anyone??

thanks very much
Brian

I did this conversion on an FJ40 with a 350 in it. I don't remember where I ended up mounting the pump but it worked great. How much higher than the bottom of the tank will the pump end up being?

I took a careful look at it today... and I was probably over exaggerating it a bit.... It honestly looks like the pump will sit about 2 inches higher than the bottom of the tank.

Run it. Do you have the tuning instructions?

And, if I've told you once, I've told you a million times: Don't exaggerate!!!

It looks like the factory lines arent large enough in diameter. Can I run rubber all the way, or does it need to be steel lines?

Steel would be better. But, can't you adapt something just to get the pump in there?
