Fuel pump noise
#1

usually my tc 87 has the fuel pump making like a "shakey sound" and now recently it sounds like a ball bearing in a rattle can. It sounds every three seconds, est.

is my pump going bad, or is there something that holds the fuel pump that is loose and causing vibrations.

i dont get any noise, when i turn the key, only a buzzing sound and it shuts off. Only when the cars running, and i can only hear it inside the car, or inside the trunk.

and when upgraded to a 255, what are the mods that have to be done to fit in a turbocoupe.
Ford Thunderbird Turbo 87
Pontiac Fiero 84
VW Beetle 74
Honda Nighthawk 83

The pump is telling you it is on deaths doorstep.

A Walbro 255 is nearly drop in. On my 88, all I had to do was cut away a little at the bottom of the rubber sleeve the pump fits into to get the new filter sock to fit, and of course, attach the wires, and the little S shaped hose that connects the pump output to the fitting on the mounting flange.
