    Several folks on here run the Carter P4070 mounted back near the fuel tank. I am currently running a small one mounted in the engine bay (Mr. Gasket Micro 42S pump), but mine has not seen the open road, it has just been a farm truck since the pump was installed, so not sure how well the 42GPH would perform on the Interstate at WOT.

    The Carter would be the safe bet.

    Install the Carter as close to the tank as possible, within a few feet so it doesn't burn out and put it on a relay. There's a good wiring diagram on this site if you search around for it. I found the pump annoyingly loud, I made a little case with a vented aluminum hobby project enclosure to deaden the sound and also protect it from rocks on the road.

    Noah - Any chance you could post a picture? I bought a Carter some time ago to replace the existing one in the engine bay. I have just been struggling with a good position to place it on the truck. I like the way Mopar_ja had mounted his, but my gas tank layout will not allow me to do the same. Thanks!

    My truck is closed for rennovstion right now (slowly bagging it) but it's just a machined aluminum project enclosure for electronics hobbyists from mouser.com. Almost identical to mopar_ja's. Do you have a picture of your tank and frame? What's it hanging up on?

    Noah - It's hard to see in this photo, but if you look to the left you can see the mounts/supports for the bed behind the cab. Between those are the hoses that connect to the fuel inlet spout. Their placement is making it difficult to mount a plate between the supports high enough to keep the pump above the frame.

    I can try to get a better pic, once the weather lets up.

    the 87 up fuel lines are in the way to mount the pump like mopar -ja and I did on the 1st gen trucks - the lines come right out of the upper side of the tank right between the bed support posts. Not sure what the best way to mount one on the 2nd gen yet - just got an 89 and will look at it when I start working on it to see what it would take.

    that can work but is not the safest place to put it in case of collision in that area - do you really want a gas line sheared off with a running pump in a collision? Think 73-87 chevy trucks with gas tank outside of the frames...

    Can you use the stock fuel pump with a weber? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    the short answer is no - it overpressures the needle and seat and causes flooding of the carb. using a pressure reg usually blows the pump due to the backpressure of the pump from the regulator restriction on the line. You will need to install an electric fuel pump back at the tank to supply fuel at the right pressure and volume. there are several threads on this forum that will give you all the information you need to install the pump safely.

    Thanks Pennyman. I have small issues with the tank anyways. It's gotta come out more than likely.

    But wouldn't the explosion be spectacular??

    Hmm, I wasn't old enough to know about the Checy trucks. What's a better location for it?

    haven't determined that yet - will figure that out when I start on the 89 longbed for my Dad.

    Sure you can figure it out. If it doesn't line up right, lift the carb turn 180 degrees and try it that way. I used same linkage up to the carb, then used one of their included link parts.
    Got a picture of the problem your coming up against?

    A pic of your set up would be great....I have installed webers on 4 diffrent vehicles with out issues, but this set up doesnt seem to have the right linkage for an automatic. I cant find a way to run the throttle cable and the trans kickdown cable..

    ram5.0 - Here is a shot of my linkage (DFEV 32/36), I had to use an O-ring and cotter pin to set the kickdown cable to the correct height. It's not the best photo, but it should give you an idea of how mine is setup.

    I found out what happened ...Im missing parts that didnt come in the package. my carb came with the linkage for a "shaft" not a cable. weber sent me an email to let me know the missing parts are being shipped

    Hey,guysThe weber carb direct guy says you can use the stock pump with a 3PSI regulator?? Is he dead wrong? Doesn't the stock pump have a return line? Thanks

    The manual pump pulsates and can build up a higher pressure behind the regulator giving the pump a harder job and probably cause the diaphragm to prematurely fail. It will also regulate the pressure but the manual pump doesn't put the proper flow for the weber and tends to flood them out. The Webers like flow more then pressure. You can make it work, but I would invest in a pump and remove the manual pump and install a plate at your earliest convenience. Check the plugs also for proper burning after installing everything.

    Thanks bradMPH, I guess I was just trying to be cheap LOL I'll buy a electric pump with a regulator gauge setup and run it at 3PSI like weber said to. Anyone have good pics of installing a weber? Thanks RAM50 Guys!!
