CJ7 Electric Fuel Pump Mounts and Locations

I just got a used Howell TBI. I am trying to source a good fuel pump and I need to know where a good mounting spot is and where I can get mounts for it and how they attach. I have read several threads that say they use hose clamp mounts but I would like to see some pics of different mounting solutions and know where you guys got your mounts. Also are you using a bracket mount for the filter or just letting it hang there?

Thanks for the responses I like both ideas I will check out some of the plumbing parts for mounts ideas. CJ7ROB what type of rubber did you use and what was it intended for so I can try to find some?

My fuel system is a little different now, but the pump is still in the same location. Mounted on a bracket to the frame rail.

AFRd_CJ5, aren't you afraid of it snagging something on the trail? Or is there a guard or plate for it we don't see?

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

I mounted mine on the rear crossmember. As close to the tank as I could get it.

I am running an E2000 fuel pump. For mounts, I used steel strapping that I wrapped around the pump and screwed into the crossmember.

I have a big koi pond and I had extra rubber from the pond liner. Its nice and thick, supposed to last 20 yrs outdoors.

My Jeep sees sand dune use, sand drags, asphalt drags, and street driving. I never do any rock/trail use with it, so definitely not an issue for me

I mounted my pump in the tank.I'm running a 350tbi system and put everything in the factory positions as if it were in a Chevy truck.

I have decided to use an E2000 or E2182 pump. I checked ebay and it seems there are several people that make a compatable pump for 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of AZone($80). Does anyone jknow anything about these cheaper pumps or should I avoid them like the Plague? I don't mind paying the extra money for quality but don't want to if I don't have to.

I went with an airtex pump. I wouldn't trust the EBay cheapos for the fuel pump.

I think I got mine for $65 on amazon, which was a little cheaper than autozone

Make sure you get a pump that can supply the right amount of psi for your system also.

Dave, did you have to modify your CJ tank for the 350 pump and sender to fit?
