my return fitting on my ps pump is just above the gearbox and is made of plastic,id like to cut it shorter and cap it off, if i do that could i just drill a hole through the cap and stick the return line through it, or would that cause an issue, or is there a better solution?

If you return above the fluid level you’ll aerate the fluid horribly. Bad day.

Almost as bad a day as when that fitting snaps off when the motor moves enough to kiss that weak plastic crap.


Maybe take off whole nipple, tap for npt and put a nipple on a street elbow?

I ran NPT threaded into the stub of a plastic return nipple on my bro for a while. I don’t know if that may have lead to eventual pump failure if it did eventually leak or fail. I put on a TC pump with remote resi. Too many fail points in those plastic things. So I gave myself a whole host of fresh homemade failure points instead!

understood
after some research, looks like i can swap on a bracket from a e-150 or likewise and they run a saginaw pump instead which is a better pump and has metal return fitting out the back of the pump

This one took me longer than I are to admit
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

hopefully the last time i have to pull the motor, underside painted and bedlined,i found an affordable dynamat substitute but with a much higher heat resistance and suitable for firewall and underside coverage as i didnt want to put it inside on the floorboards, i do plan on using killmat on walls and ceiling inside of the cab
