My Explorer has a full tank of gas and and blown motor.

I just finished putting a fuel pump in my lincoln and I need to getsome gas in it.

I already pulled the line from the filter and have it directed to a tank.

How can I get the fuel pump to pump it out without burning up the starter?

just have to tap into the power and ground wires for the pump

You can power the pump to run AT THE FUEL PUMP RELAY under the hood with a simple jumper wire, from 12V+ to the signal wire out to the pump

Worked like a Champ! Thanks!


I used and old Fuel line and connected the fuel filter to the gas tank.

Now I'll just pull up next to it and dump the rest in the lincoln.
