Did I blow up my K532?

Recommended Posts

It's pretty common for folks to install electric pumps to replace obsolete mechanical pumps or to eliminate issues with fuel tank placement in later models - not sure if the mods want to make a sticky thread for this or not - that drawing is spot-on for how to plumb everything properly to make it work . Some tanks it would be pretty easy to add another port for the return line to the tank - I didn't want to risk causing a problem on the D's bigger metal tank and mine is in really good shape other than a couple of nice dents . A dedicated return port is the best way and they can be added anywhere to a tank , even at the top next to the fuel filler cap - just use a gasketed bulkhead fitting - but make sure you can get a wrench on it . Other option on metal tanks is to have someone braze/weld a thick bung onto the tank , then bore/tap it for 1/8" NPT fittings for the line . It's nice to have a return line and a common and easily obtained fuel filter to provide that option - we've used this setup on a lot of different types of equipment , especially ones known for vapor lock .
