    NEW Integrated pump sender combo!

    Hey everyone,

    I have had the new pump developed by DMCH installed since April 30th. DMCMW informed me I was probably the first owner to have one 'field installed'.

    I am not able to give full impressions yet because the car I am restoring on the side is a non-runner and still needs a little work before I can actually start driving it for the first time in 20 years. This car belongs to a local owner who I am doing the restoration for. So I can only attest to the completeness of the kit and the installation ease.

    I received the kit well-packaged as always from DMCMW. Kit contains the pump itself (with controller attached), a rubber grommet/seal that goes around the top half of the pump and seals the tank hole, two new black fuel hoses, four fuel hose clamps, two modern FI-style connectors for the hoses (very common style I have seen on Chrysler fuel injection parts), a sending unit hole blanking plate made of stainless steel with a gasket, a fuel filter kit, a big clamp for the pump, and a set of detailed instructions.

    Installation is very easy! I won't rehash the instructions but basically you remove EVERYTHING from the tank including the sender, clean the tank really well while you are in there, and disconnect both original electrical connectors. Cut off the old hoses from the barbs (no need to unscrew the compression fittings). Push the new-style barb connectors onto the new hoses and attach them to the pump. They simply snap on with a secure fit. Place the new pump clamp over the tank opening. You push the new pump into the tank and then rotate it so that the hoses are pointing towards the filler neck. This is important so that the pump clears the OEM tank mounting stud and so you can get the pump cover plate back on correctly.

    Once the pump is in position, I pushed down on the pump to get it into the tank hole as deep as I could. There is a lip around the top of the pump to keep the big black gasket from sliding over the pump. You will not be able to get the lip on the tank to touch the lip on the pump - it will seem like it isn't in all the way but it is. You then tighten the big clamp securely. I checked and the pump is definitely not going anywhere.

    Then you hook up the hoses to the metal lines, install the blanking plate, connect the electrical connectors to the original harness, and zip-tie the controller to the filler neck.

    Since my fuel system was totally cleared out it took a few seconds to re-pressurize. The pump came on right away when jumping the RPM relay. I would say it sounds very close to the original pump, maybe a tad quieter. I only have about 4 gallons of gas in the tank so I don't know what it will sound like with a full tank.

    Obviously I don't know how well the sender works because this car is undriveable due to leaking radiator and stuck brakes. Hopefully in a week or two I can provide better information for that.

    But anyway, it's here, it goes in easy, the instructions are superb, and I'm a little jealous that my car doesn't have one yet. Check out the pics!

    This is all well and good and I'm really excited about this unit, but what's killing me is that it seems impossible to actually BUY one.

    I talked to Julee this afternoon and it sounded like they are taking orders now.

    So does this eliminate the need for the pickup hose, the baffle, the screen and the boot?
