aftermarket external fuel pumps

Just exploring some options here.

Anyone running an external pump on a V8 and if so which one?

I have a 4.0 and am thinking about using an external pump instead of an in tank genuine one on the 110 project.

I would use a diesel plastic tank with an external pump. Pros vs. cons? I like the idea of the pump out of the tank as if it were to go bad it would be easier to replace without having to drop the tank etc....

THoughts?

Thanks

What is/was the reason why you do not just duplicate the NAS D110 set up?
RN has all the parts ---> Click Here
Did you find a larger capacity tank?

I like the idea of a external pump also, the few times I have had problems with my fuel pump in the past it was a PITA to get to the pump. I have a door built into the floor now but a external pump is definetly a "upgrade" I will do in the future. Also with a external you can rig just about any fuel pump with similar PSI and make it work in a breakdown situation.

The cheap auto parts inline pumps push plenty for the power of our rigs. I haven't run them on a rover, but plenty of work trucks over the years and even a fairly hot 69 camaro with no problems. On the other side, I think I will go factory again when mine blows. Its not that hard to get to. I might use the alternative if I am somewhere and need a quick fix.

I retrofitted 14CUX injection to a 1985 D110. When I did it, I used an inline EFI pump that I got from NAPA. I believe that it was a Holley pump. One care point....it had to be mounted at or lower than the bottom of the tank to work properly. I also used the same pump with a fuel cell on a friends rock buggy. It performs well but the pump is noisey.

Interesting Rob. That might make a difference in my decision.

John I was just exploring options with the possibility of a plastic tank.

Leaning towards the stock steel tank now.
