Cherokee AMC 360 Sniper EFI install

Started slow. Working out fuel pump details. Ordered the wrong one to start with. Finally figured it out. Got a spare tank to mock up the sender with in tank pump assembly. Got that from Jerry in Globe. A wealth of parts and assistance. Image

I just used a stick to measure from top of sender to bottom of tank and modified pump tube to pickup to fit and make sure the float arm went all the way to bottom.

Looks like you got fancy lol

Did have to do some drain, refill and adjust some several times to make sure the gauge worked the way that I liked it.

Put a lawnmower battery to it and changed the hose back to the gas can outside the tank on the ground.

Can run some jumper wires to your gauge wires to check and make sure it operates correctly.

Not fancy. Had the chance to use the tank so I did. If mocking it up helps I like it! I plan on testing the gauging system before final install.

Having a tank chunk to mock up does indeed help.
I've used this chunk-o-tank a few times now.
Debated selling ready to install units for a while, but demand wasn't very high @ time.
This was six years ago though, maybe different now?

If I had an extra I would have done the same thing.

The ones they sell for replacement are off. The pickup tubes are about 2.5" short and the floats aren't accurately bent.

My only guess is that they are for older tanks which may be different than an 87.

The tanks Jerry had one has a large horseshoe shaped well for fuel and the other is shallow. Both are poly tanks. Seems there are two kinds.
