Which regulator are you using?Just my two cents here.
Yes it can. It depends on what other fuel system items you are using though. I believe you would need a stand alone fuel pressure regulator and would not be able to use the stock style equipment.
I am using a custom sumped fuel tank in my conversion. I use aftermarket fuel rails and an adjustable fuel pressure regulator.
I already have 2 1/2 alum lines ran from the back, can these be used in any way? Or are they to big?I had basically the same thing as 69... Summit aluminium fuel cell in the trunk, 6 AN bradied line to a trick flow pre-filter, inline walbro 255, 'vette filter/regulator, then 3/8" hard line to the front.
I'm now running a stock tank with a tanks-inc style tray and an aeromotive stealth 340 in-tank pump (room for the future)
edit: Here's a schematic I made with the fuel cell (note your feed and return should NOT both be at the sump. I later revised it to return the fuel to an upper 6 AN bung). The Summit cell had 8 AN fittings, so I had to reduce it.
The inlet and outlet are only 10MM on that pump, not 3/8 minimum......but the LPH and PSI are correct.Will the walbro GSL392 work? If I'm not able to get the corvette filter regulator which aftermarket regulator will work?

Hookem posted the part number in his drawing above. WIX 33737. Beware of Chinese substitutes for 15 dollars, they WILL fail.....WIX is about 40 bucks....
That pump won't work for even a 3/8 line, it will be a choke point, again, the inlet and outlet are too small at 10MM. Usually when someone runs a 1/2" line, they are making big horse power, and run dual pumps. You can use it with a single pump, but it may lead to starvation issues.....So my 1/2" fuel lines are to large for that pump?
Return line should enter at the top and extend to near the bottom of the tank, into the fuel reserve, if not you will get bubbles, and could cause your pump to cavitate.Should the return line enter the top of the tank or bottom?
Yep, a rubber fuel line. There is a 1/4" NPT bung in the tank, I screwed a 1/4" to barb fitting I and used a spectre breather filter on the other end. Routed it to a high point in the rear. Works like a champ, and get no fuel smell from it.Tom,
Is that rubber line in the pic your vent line? If so, how is your vent set up?
I see Russell offer 2 different style fittings. Which did you use?You only need one 3/8" line to the front. Mount the filter/regulator back at the tank, to shorten the reeturn path and save some money, there is no need for two lines, see the picture I attached for some idea on the fuel setup.
