This pump assembly is a high performance factory replacement unit. Key features:
• Drops directly into the factory fuel tank (NO CUTTING REQUIRED).
• Utilizes the factory jet siphon system so it operates just like Ford intended.
• High flow pre-filter built into inlet of pump.
• Includes fuel level mounting bracket for factory leveling unit.
NOTE: The use of Teflon braided line with machine crimped hose ends is recommended. This eliminates the possibility of fuel vapors permeating through the fuel line. The use of a 16306 speed pump controller is also highly recommended, this will keep the fuel cool and reduce noise inside the passenger compartment.
