I'm running the p4070. It keeps up pressure very well, even at wot. I wouldn't have an electric pump pushing to the macnical pump. The diaphram in the mechanical pump can bust and the electric one will push fuel into the crank case. Bye bye bearings!Don't run a Holley red, those pumps get too hot and tired. They are designed for drag racing and not long runs. Get a holley blue or a carter P4070 for your lift pump.
So your tank is 120lbs empty?The front of the fuel tank is angled to provide clearance for the radiator to help with air flow. If my math is correct it will hold roughly 30 gallons and weigh about 300 lbs. full. The mount bushings are Energy Suspension sway bar link bushings.
You may want to ditch the mechanical, the diaphram tends to rupture when they're fed with positive pressure.I have actually considered the small fuel tank in the engine compartment idea. I have an electric pump at the tank pushing fuel through the water separator then feeding the mechanical pump. I will probably try to run it as is for now and see how it works.

It's probably pretty close. It's 3/4 of a sheet of 10ga mild steel. It's pretty stout.

I had not heard of that. I had run it that way for a couple years on the old truck that way with no issues. Probably because its not a real high volume or pressure pump. I have a pressure switch in the line to shut the electric pump off at 6psi.
The outer shell of a double cardan joint, and a 2wd slip yoke? Trans might not like the absence of the tailshaft housing, but with only 6" of drive shaft hanging on it it might not hurt anything.I am still trying to find a 6-8 inch long driveline with 1/2 inch of slip.
It's not on the table any more, I had to return it to the company I borrowed it from. I needed it to lay the frame out on because there are no flat areas on my shop floor. And it was nice to get everything up to a more comfortable working height.Great build. Love the body choice. It''l definately be unique. Also love the fact that you're building it on a tabletop like some sort of giant RC:smokin:
