Good luck on the piping changes, I hope it turns out to be warm and dry for you.

Ditto, working out in the rain, wind, or snow is not fun. I work in it, but at home I'd like to work inside if I can.
what gauge of metal and how big don? i can look around work, or might have something kicking around
somewhere in the 5x7 inch range. 5x6 would work also.
As far as gauge. No clue. As long as its heavy enough that the pump won't bounce around. Really, only 2 of the pump mounts are hanging over the edge.
Here's where I'm shamelessly copying how 4pointslow mounted his pump for reference.
My 98 super charged EX
nothing to be ashamed about. thats almost the same spot i did mine, but its hanging off the side of the fender apron behind the passengers headlight.
How'd you get a drill up there to get the 4 holes drilled? one of those sideways style drills?
Isn't that where the air cleaner is, the other side of that?
I've got an external filter on my 99 that I might have drilled the holes without the front end on it. It's mounted where the front body mount is, the pocket above there I put three holes/bolts in.
Don, I like that spot under the air box (Or at least where the air box would be) for ease of installation.
It just isn't as protected as inside the inner fender though. Its probably worth the struggle to get the pump a bit more protected.
I took the mount off the pump, and used it as a template. Then drilled two holes from the engine bay side, then bolted the pump in. Was a little bit of a change lining them up and threading the bolts, but it's in there. I should make a small plate on the bay side one of these days, but today isn't looking good. Tomorrow isn't either
And it does Sheild it for the most part from water, as long as I don't go
camicazi into puddles
Yea, I'm going to try to have everything on hand for piping and taking a run at mounting the pump for December 29th now. I 'think' I will have that day to myself and the truck will hopefully have sat in the garage over Christmas so it will be dry.
Nice warm garage, radio, working on the truck getting some alone time. Sounds like a Christmas gift to me.
Sounds good, inside and warm.
People with heated garages suck!
Mine isn't heated, but I do leave the kitchen door open to help.
