OK thank you
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

The two different pumps have different size quick fittings. The main pump goes on the right side, the transfer pump on the left. Each pump will have a long transfer hose to allow it to pump to the other side of the hump, that hose connects onto a fitting on the pump on the other side. They are mostly self-explanatory- just think of the main line in the center of the pump as being the pressure feed. If you have questions, take a picture and I can help you out.

I've got everything put together but now the car is stopping and going as if fuel gets thru then stops then more comes thru also gas tank reading empty and it has a half a tank or more
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

It sounds like one is pumping to the other side, but that other side is not pumping back. They should always have an equal amount of fuel in each side of the tank as each pump moves fuel from it's side to the other, plus the overflow if it reaches over the hump.

What was your original issue with the pumps?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was told the fuel pump was bad which I have since replaced but I was not sure how to reconnect them pumps I got side tracked and forgot which hose goes where there for not wanting to do any further harm I contracted you guys for help identifying the connections to en sure it was done correctly which has not worked out this far and I'm hoping you can help

Pics of the tops and I'll send pics of the inside next
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

How much fuel is in the tank? Is it possible to pull the pumps out and check the fittings on the top of them, and take pictures?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Half a tank of gas and we have checked the tops I've sent you pictures of the top of the pump connection recently
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Be sure to look at the added files please
Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 1 year ago.

All of the pictures are of the top of the sending unit (and one stock photo of a fuel pump) What I need is a photo of what you are working with, in place, so I can see if they are routed correctly.
