fuel return line. Take it back and get a correctly outfitted replacement.

Hi
What brand is it?
I would avoid that brand in future.

I don't remember the brand but I bought it off ebay. Does anyone know where I can get a pump with a return line to fit into the fuel pump cartridge?

I guess it depends. mines done about 30,000 clicks mainly on LPG but with the fuel pump running all that time on maybe 3 full tanks of petrol in that mileage and the pump I put in doesn't have a return hose, i just made sure the small cup the pump picks up from has the return hose going into that so the bottom of the cup gets the return fuel and its not dumped direct into the tank.

I retro fitted a GOSS branded pump from a Holden Commodore to do the job, was $85 Australian and a few hours of my time.

Mine looked the same as this one:

Same here. I'm still good after an emission test and 20K+ miles.
This post may be of help for your generic pump:

John I have the same setup I see in your picture, can you explain a little better just how you re-routed the return line?

I pulled the pump itself out of the assembly and fitted one like that into my RRC pump/fuel sender assembly.

As a result, the hoses just connected to the original fittings on the outside of the pump.

The one in the pic is a submersible pump. I bought the same one and fitted it in my tank as mentioned above.

ok, I found the pictures.

Here's the hole I butchered :



Here's the new pump (bigger) next to the old pump (smaller)



Here's the new pump inside the fuel tank pump assembly



keep in mind mine is a 94/95 built car and we didn't have any emissions rubbish bogging things down then.
