Fuel Pump Conversion on 1984 Ford SVO
#10

Anthony, I looked up the resistance wire in my 1984 Ford car shop manual. In volume D, page 24-35-6 shows a wiring diagram of the fuel pumps. It clearly shows a "Resistant Wire" from the in-tank pump ground to chassis ground. There are no other resistors shown in the wiring diagram. On page 24-35-2 it says "The low pressure (in-tank) electric fuel pump is to provide pressurized fuel to the inlet of the high pressure pump...The low pressure pump has an external resistor in the electrical circuit to reduce the operating voltage to 11 volts." That is all I found about it.

From that statement I gather that the low-pressure pump contains an 11 volt motor. However, the modern in-tank pumps have 12 volt motors so we need to short across that resistance wire.
My totaled 84 SVO had: ported big-valve head, roller cam, front IC, BPV, E6, 3" exh; 259 rwhp, 331 rwtq at 19 psi.
