A dual setup is pure custom work! Its hard to do a writeup on that..
Not many do it, and due to the diff gas tanks in the diff gen's or year f-bodys, its going to be a lot of writeups for a small num of people..
I would say, to get some smart friends together and make a weekend out of it..
All ya have to do, is make sure the pickups are in the gas, wire strap em up in place (since there is no real mounting method) and make sure your clamps are tight.

It just so happens on a day after your post....

It's not a writeup, but it's a small narrated photo-session, and I'm sure you will get the gist.

How long does this install take usually, excluding time to drop the tank? Im wanting to do this on my truck soon. I have the pump kit and am just waiting for a good day to do it. Today is in the 70's here in Texas and if this is 4-5 hours or less im all game!

Racetronix, its dealers and most pump manufacturers do not recommend removing the sender in this fashion. It is best to remove, inspect and clean the tank before installing a new pump when possible.

Always refer to your GM factory service manual for proper procedures and safety warnings.

Question

Hi Nicolas, I have a 96 Buick Roadmaster tank,in my 68 chevelle,that must have had an LT1. Would I be doing the same setup you have discribed in your Sticky. My plan is for an LS1 conversion and I want to also ask what other fuel related items I could be mounting in this trunk setup I've shown in the pic below ie Filter/Regulator, fusses or Relays ?

Thanks, Tony

Does anyone besides me wonder why GM used the jet set up and a fuel bucket to feed the pump and you just disregarded it? What happens when your tank gets low on fuel, or do you always keep it above 1/4 tank?

always keep it above 1/4. and honestly if you are letting it get that low you need to be slapped. that kills fuel pumps like no other. the heat they generate is cooled by the fuel, have it at the very least a 1/4 and begin looking for a gas station to fill it up.

Took a good look at it and there was not way that my Walbro was gonna fit. Gave it a shot and I've had no troubles for 40,000 miles and I've run it down to less than gallon in the tank a dozen times atleast. Maybe it wasn't as important as you thought because those numbers speak volumes to me...
