    Thanks Mark - I completely agree. I've been a little confused and put off by some of the attitudes and comments on facebook, this forum is far preferable and more helpful. It's hard to tell who truly know and cares, and who just wants to have an opinion (on facebook).
    But - some facebook people have also gone out of their way to be helpful. Nonetheless, I'll be sticking to this forum from now on :)

    Okay, would anyone with an electric pump, a fuel regulator and a solenoid fitted, mind telling me exactly where?
    This lot is quite chunky compared to the old pump and I'm not sure where they are best to go.

    I've taken some photos but am currently using just my old phone, looks like I'll be joining photobucket and figuring out uploads tomorrow.

    Don’t do that! :eek:

    Photobucket is not what it was. Just reduce the pic size to less than 1mb if needed, then click the “upload a File” button, in the reply window. ;)

    Okay. Not great shots, but here's the layout, the blocked off section and where I'm considering putting the new set up.

    Hi Tash,
    My factory electric pump sits on the horizontal subframe in front of the rear wheels, a long way from engine & at the cool end of the engine bay;).
    Looks like you've picked above an axle.
    Here's mine looking towards the front. Oh and for the rest of you peeps note the new fuel lines:p.

    Apparently my shirt also got into that photo!

    Cheers

    Thanks David - I just couldn't figure out where to put it, but somehow got stuck in the mindset of trying to fit things in the congested region where the old pump was. I really like the idea of it being away from tthe heat too.

    That's why I'd never lower my bus - as it is I can fit :) :):p

    It's the other suspension that is sagging or is that expanding :confused:o_O;)

    Did note at last Bugs & Buses that my bus sits lower than other Kombis. Spoke to MAP77 & asked if he'd adjusted his ride height. Answer ...No. We put it down to the camper conversion & weight over time. Any way I have to pick up a reco front beam on our way home from Stanthorpe. Not going to help the room under down the back tho!
    & you guys were just a bit too quick responding to my post 72:D.
    Cheers

    How about this spot for fuel solenoid, regulator, and pump. It means running a lot more fuel hose but at least it's away from engine heat.
