How to feed the TPI in my 69
« on: March 01, 2009, 02:14:45 PM »
I am looking for a compatible tank, or internal pump assembly to feed my 69 307. TPI is off an 87 305 firebird. I have most of the system, but not the fuel pump. I am wondering if anyone has come across a factory fuel tank with internal pump that will fit with minimal effort, or if there is a GM internal pump assembly I can use with a standard 69 tank. This is a budget build, so I would like to be able to find the parts in a bone yard. I am already aware of the 1000. plus custom tanks, and will not be going that route, but could buy a repro tank to modify if needed.

GM part# for the pump would be 25116163 or AC Delco ep241. You should be able to adapt this pump to your existing sending unit without to much fabrication. Also use strainer #25055458 or AD Delco TS4 and fuel dampener 25094266 or AC Delco FP27. This will give correct fuel pressure, However you will also need a fuel return line as well.

If its not too late, Spectra Premium industries (SPI) is making OE style tanks with fuel pumps for EFI conversions. Part number GM32BFI. Rock auto sells it for about $450. Has pump and sending unit. I put EFI in my 68 and didn't find out about this set up until after I had already run a return line through my sending unit and mounted an external pump.
