Fuel Tank Fab Question

Hi All -

I'm fabricating an aluminum fuel tank for my '96 after fabricating a 4-linked ford 8.8. The only aluminum fuel pump ring I can find is from GenRight ( and requires a swap to the '97+ fuel pump.

Has anyone swapped a 97+ pump assy into a 96? I think the '96 pump assy includes the pressure regulator, and I'd have to put on an external regulator from a 97+ as part of the swap.

I'm not sure how to make this work, and am hoping someone has swapped the GenRight 35 gallon tank into a '96 or earlier XJ and can share some tips on making things work (Fuel pump assy, fuel level gauge, correct pressure, etc).

Re: Fuel Tank Fab Question

It's the other way around, the newer pump has the pressure regulator built into the pump and does not utilize a return line. It does operate at a higher pressure though, that "could" be a issue with your injectors.
