Ive thought about running the stock pump externally. Bought a E2000 pump off ebay already though. For shits and giggles Im thinking Im going to mount both next to each other and run the stock one on a 2 day run coming up. If it lives through that Ill be suprised. If it doesnt oh well, was just going to add to the clutter in the shop.

WTF man. Now I gotta step up my gas tank game

Very nice work. Probably the best, cleanest relocation I've seen.

Ive been having troubles with fumes in the cab.
I have a vent line on the filler neck and on top of the cell and they are both in my cab and I was looking to move them.
My question is if I run them out the side below the cell am I gonna throw gas out of it all the time?
I was also thinking of putting some filters on the end of them and mounting them out of the ceiling.
Ill post pics tomorrow for some vent tube tech.
FUCK I DONT KNOW!

Assuming you've reconnected the factory vents on top of the tank?

I never had an issue with fumes in mine unless I had literally just topped it off.

4 walbro pickups used 3/8in copper tube compression fitting Teed to 1/2in copper tube, Teed to the 5/8in rubber pickup cut down. I also swapped out the return line fitting for a hard line that goes to the bottom of the tank. The return line is epoxied to the copper hard line so it cant hop around.

The pickup bult head fitting is -10AN 5/8in hose going to the 100u pre filter, short section of -8an 1/in hose from the prefilter to the pump inlet, the pump outlet is -8an 1/2in hose to the regulator, the regulator uses -6an 3/8in high pressure line through the post filter 10u to the fuel rail. Return line from regulator is -8 1/2in and the fuel cell vent is -8AN 1/2in hose with an air filter on it. All three lines coming off the fuel cell have ball valve shutoffs.

The external pump is a Walbro GSL392, 60 PSI 255 liter per hour pump. It has a built in check valve that holds about 20 psi. It is virtually silent. This pump has a small 10mm inlet. I bought the -8AN to 10mm adapter from summit but I modified it to have a larger ID hole to reduce cavitation.

I replaced all tank Teflon bulk fitting washers with stat-o-seals. And used polysulfide two part epoxy to glue and seal all bulk head fittings.

Cool

I did mine flat with the bottom of the frame so its half in half out. I ran some braces under the tank for it to sit on, and relocated my straps up top. The way I did it, the strap goes in its existing hole, and the studs are welded to the shock structure. I'm tieing it all into my shock structure, and I'm gonna add plate on top so I still have room for cargo. It's not finished yet, because I still need to make the hole bigger for my diesel tank. Pix aren't great, but its all I have left. The great computer crash wiped out most of my pix, and all I have is what I put on Photobucket.
