Got my fuel lines all finished up.. Went to fill the surge tank with my low pressure pump and prime the system. Low pressure pump is completely seized :cry: . I should have just got a custom petrol tank made to suit EFI :evil: :evil: :evil:

Bit of a bugger, but you will overcome, if it was "Simples" we would all be at it Jesse h:

This was originally going to be a cheap quick setup to get me running. So I can get a drop tank made at a later date :lol: .

I was using the OEM pump haha. Got a Carter 4600 (Carter black) on order which should be more than fine for the surge tank/swirl pot
