I might have already answered this question for my self, but I need some assistance.

The fuel pump provided with my MPI kit isn't labled as to which end is out and which end is in. Is there any easy way to tell? With the way things are going for me this week, I'd end up installing the pump in backasswards and the jeep wouldn't work when I got it all together, which will be this sunday I hope.

The bracket for mounting the pump was also not included along with the bracket for mounting the MPI computer./wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif Those are the least of my problems. I can weld and cut steel so I can wip something up that will work.

Thanks ahead of time for any ideas, responses, experiences,

Put a piece of fuel line on each end and one at a time stick it in a bucket of gas while it's energized.

That will work, but if you use gas, BE CAREFUL!!

Look to see if either end has mounting for a screen or filter, that would be the tank, or suction end...

Look on the side of the pump it should have a "arrow" indicating the direction of flow. Later.

My MPI I installed last year had the arrow on the side, and the Compter bolted right to the firewall, no bracket. It really gets confusing sometimes looking at those directions.
A piece of advice, I found when installing the Fuel Filter, don't put it in the middle. It was way too close to the rear diff for my tastes, and hung-out too far, I was afraid a rock might get it, so I moved the pump to the middle and the filter to the left side, it takes some creative hosework, but it will fit eventually.

Thanks for all of the replys,/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

All of your responses prompted me to inspect the pump again when I got home. Before I looked at it I cleaned up some in the engine compartment. With slightly greasy hands I inspected the pump. I found the arrow, and after I got some grease on it, a very small plus sign in the whit plastic piece on the end beneath the electrical connections. Thus solving one off my other problems. Who would of thought that all it needed was a little grease?

Thanks,
