Another Fuel System Question...
OK, we get air in our fuel system because we suck fuel from the tank. There are fittings that leak, and the mixing chamber that.....well, leaks.
So, we put in solid lines and hoses with worm clamps to prevent this.
Secondly, many people espouse the great virtues of the Bosch 044 pump as a remedy for a failed/weak stocker. This pump would also suck fuel like the stocker.
Therefore, I submit, as written in Bosch literature, that the 044 be used as an in tank fuel pump. Submerged in fuel, cooled and lubricated and no inlet leaks.
It should be easy enough to cobble a few fittings together, add the Bosch inlet filter (sock) and make the whole fuel system one of positive pressure.
The only negative I see, is if the pump should ever fail, one would need to drop the fuel tank again.
But a Bosch should easily out live any stocker, so I can only believe that the pump would likely never have to be removed again.
OK, so where did I jump the track?
