    WALBRO fuel pump install on 08-11 RXP ???

    I read about it in 10 threads and unfortunately no ones have a picture so i prefer to ask with a picture for not making a mistake here...
    I know this years pump its not a direct swap...., i need to to trim the plastic casing but the question its which of this ones...
    1.- the one that cames out of the pump
    2.- the grey part of the original casing.
    I marked both ones with numbers for making it easy....
    many thanks in advanced.

    Hope this helps.

    You have to cut the area around the electrical connection.
    I also replaced the plastic fuelline for a rubber one.

    Only if you have a modified ski,which needs fuelpressure above 70 psi.

    some us run them with 80s and much lower fuel pressure. They are suppose to be superior pumps.

    I just finish installing the pump... I just cut #2 in the photo like half and also cut the superior edge where the white connector is and the pump goes perfect in place... I even keep the rubber that goes in between #1 and #2 without cutting it...
    Many thanks

    You have to watch it with that rubber piece between #1 and #2. You can lose fuel pressure at that piont. If your fuel pressure gauge doesn't hold pressure after you turn the ski off, its a good chance its leaking there. Its a good idea to do what richrxp did.

    Bigger fuse is doing nothing except just waiting for more AMPs before it blows if you have a problem like a short.

    Don't put a Walbro in unless you install a pump relay (I learnt the hard way - my pump partially failed meaning it wouldn't hold any more then 40psi and my engine ran lean costing me an engine rebuild as a result) - I have now installed a fuel pump relay

    Attached is the wiring diagram to install a fuel pump relay on an 06.
