In-cab tank fuel pump rig

I just removed the in-cab tank from my truck and put a Boyd's tank in the back. Truth be told I got sick of the fuel pump sound in the cab. But for anyone out there who might want to keep their in-cab tank, I'll pass on this rig, which will drop right in and works like a charm. It will draw until the tank is pert-in-ear empty.

The pump is a Walbro GSS340 - I used it for about 2000 miles, it's about a year old.

I'll sell either the whole rig or just the pump for $25 + ride.

I had to shrink the picture pretty small to get under 100KB, so if you want a better picture PM me an email address.

Re: In-cab tank fuel pump rig

Wow, must be the distance. The cheapest shipping was actually USPS Priority Mail at 19.50. The package only weighs 3 lb. UPS and Fedex were both more.

I understand if that tips the equation away from you wanting to buy this.

If you do still want it do you want me to remove the -AN connectors? I'll still include them in the package but don't know if you plan on using -AN lines and I have the tools to remove them.

Re: In-cab tank fuel pump rig

Wish I logged in last night to see this! I’ll be in line if it falls thru. For reference could you please share a pic of the baseplate and how you ran the pump harness through?

Re: In-cab tank fuel pump rig

This picture hopefully helps you, Tork. I used a small rubber grommet, I drilled a 1/4" hole and ran the wires through it, then as you can see I gunked it up with RTV. I did that later on with the seat installed which is why it's such a mess. I was getting a gas smell in the cab, and didn't realize it was because I did not use PTFE AN hose. That was really what pushed me over the edge to move the tank out of the cab. The ethanol gas vapor goes right through rubber hose. Rookie mistake (even after 8 years of tinkering with this truck!).

For the return line I drilled through the dimple in the baseplate and brazed the line to it. The flexible line attached to the end of the return line was just a hack to make it easier to get the whole assembly through the hole in the tank. First you feed the float, then the fuel pump while holding that rubber hose to the side, then you stick the hose in and wah-lah.
