    mounting an external fuel pump

    so i'm hoping i can get some recommendations here. I need to install an external fuel pump in my 96 xp and i had a question on what i should use for anchors in the fiberglass after i drill holes in the f-glass. I don't know if i can use wall anchors or what. Any help would be appreciated! thanks.

    There is a bracket out there that allows you to attach the fuel pump to the front of the mag housing so you dont have to drill the fiberglass

    Im wondering if it's a good idea to mount the fuel pump on a vibrating engine. I made one on the break at work out of a piece of flat stock. I drilled to holes and put 2 10mm bolts and nuts to hold it on.

    How long did you run it with that mounted to the mag cover? Just asking because i have that mount and am a little worried about using it. I guess it should be ok, or they wouldn't sell it????

    Has anyone else used the mag mount? Is it not a good idea?

    I think that I ran it a summer ( 4 mos ) before I went to the 951 conversion
