This place has the foam bushing to fit around your walbro and into your stock housing. They also have submersible hose and plug in harnesses. It where I went to get my stuff to do the same thing you're doing on your car.
I made an aluminum spacer at work to handle the length of the pump. Let me know if you need one.
What he said
Worth noting is that your 'safety wire' appears to be copper wire. Real safety wire is typically stainless. I'd be hesitant to use copper for two reasons. The first is that I'd expect is to become brittle and corrode and get nasty relatively quickly. The second is that copper will react with gasoline and speed it's oxidation into that gum that you dig out of old carbs. Probably not a huge deal, but if you're in there, I'd do it right.
Before anyone mentions it, the 'copper' hardlines that you see in some automotive fuel systems are actually made of a different alloy called cunifer.
Make it right, Holmes.
Ahh, I see Chris. My stock pump was much closer in length to the Walbro than that.
Got all 4 wheels cleaned, assembled and sealed last night.
yay i guess
ETA for mounting tires so you can fit them on the car and play with the fenders before paint?
Flywheel issue is sorted out. New flywheel showed up on friday, Proven Force balanced it with my clutch and it is now all good.
Pulling the motor right now (taking a break) and the manifold is being made right now as well. Need to get the cold side intercooler piping tacked together once the manifold is done and then everything starts to go together.
Also, Jesse came over last night, wired up the Innovate auto timer wideband and I installed the boost guage. nice little relaxed friday night. thanks jess!
