I'm looking at mounting a Holley red pump and a remote fuel filter (oil filter type screw-on fuel filter) on my 82 crew cab and my sons 76 W200.  I know that the electric fuel pumps are pushers and needed to be mounted near the tanks.  I planned on mounting on the outside of the frame on the driver side for ease of maintenance and installation.  I also know that I need a fuel pressure safety switch installed too.  Someone tell me if I'm crazy or my idea will work.

Questions would be:

1. why? (when a properly working system works fine)

2. what are you using to shut it off in case of a crash/rollover, etc?

#1. I like the ease of the electric pump and canister filter over the factory cartridge filter. I had a mechanical pump leak gas into the crank case on a 318 causing me to have e to drop a new engine in.

#2.  The fuel pressure safety switch I listed in my post will shut off the pump in the event of oil pressure loss

1. I don't see a problem with this; just make sure it's mounted safely (won't catch something you're riding over)

2. I somehow overlooked that. That's a good plan.

3. You might want to add a rubber insulator between the frame and pump bracket to reduce noise/vibration.

Most of the trucks have the fuel lines run on the passenger side frame. Likely a lot simpler to mount it there.

Even though the tank is mounted on the driver side?

Yes. These pics you can see the lines for 77 dual tanks. The single tanks ran similar. 80's had them a wee bit different, but close.
