Re: 258 mech. fuel pump block off plate- which one?
Yup- my local Discount Auto had one, and the Automotive Engineering store had three different types to choose from.
Monday I should be picking up the gas-tank straps and installing a '90s F150 rear fuel tank into my J10. I'm going to hook up electric pumps to both tanks and run them on seperate fuel lines, with seperate filters, up to the inline fuel-pressure regulator before the carb. I'm going to take a headlight switch (the push-pull type) and install it in the dash below the current headlight switch. Wire it for OFF-Front-Rear selections and have the pump and corresponding sending unit activated by relay. I should be able to carry a little over 30 gallons of fuel this way, which should help with my trip to Uwharrie during the Memorial Day weekend (26-30). It's ~660 miles each way, and at (gestimated) 15mpg, I'll only have to stop for fuel once along the way.
