Hey All,
I'm in the process of installing a Walbro Fuel Pump in my XR6, I think I have most of the process down pat. But wouldn't mind a run through of putting it in. Particularly the wiring.

Cheers guys!

hey

regarding the wiring i managed to fit it into my EA

i followed where the factory wires go into then pulled the crimp terminals of and placed the walbro crimps in that place , may need to stretch out the walbro crimps a little

I also did the lazy way of tieing up the excess wire in a knot so i didn't need to re cut and solder / heat shrink it etc

I know vs EA to EL the wiring is the very slightest bit different but it should be the same concept

Fitting it , was quite simple also it all went together just fine sure the socks a little smaller in the GSS342s but so be it

Cheers for the reply.
You wouldn't have a few pic of the wiring would you?

Yeah I had the same idea with regards to following the factory lines.

Nah sorry

But it was kind of like when you have to much length in a cord when doing speakers etc and you leave some spare and just fold it up like after using a extension cord in hops then tie around it with the cable

i know it sound dodgy as sin but honestly its 10-25CM at MAX thats to much

But if you could get new crimps and cut then add the crimps that would be a seasoned pro job but as long as there not getting tangled up etc should be all fine

could you do me a favor though ? is this a GSS342 ?

does the pump go all the way down the tank like the stock one ?

I have got a GSS342 but the car is a back yard garden ornament so i havent driven it yet


But what worries me is when the fuel splashes around at below 1/3 would it cut out ? due to the pump isnt so deep in

Also what about fuel pressure etc ? more flow they 3442 is , i guess a tune can easily fix that ?

Yeah it does, after a bit of research I have seen a few people complaining that the car will cut out at like 1/4. But Some people found it didn't happen.

A tune would sort it out no worries

Ok had a feeling about that doh! :(

You may also need to cut up the "rubbers" that came with it to convert the diameter of the pump i had to
