Quantum 255LPH Fuel Pump Assembly

You’re welcome. I just try to think of threads I enjoy reading and try to include those same features in my threads. And keep them honest and truthful that helps too - it’s not fun to post a mistake if you make one, but mistakes are the best way to learn unfortunately.

Yes, that is a nice find on the pump, thanks for posting. I only use my front tank right now because the rear one leaks at anything over half full so I was just planning on doing a pump in that tank.....however since I use the truck off road some, using only the rear tank could make more sense for ground clearance. Hmmmmm.....thanks for the inspiration! I remember 255lph being a popular size for 5.0 Mustangs, but I don’t recall how much power they were good to. I bet it would do....I’ll just have to verify when the time comes. Thanks for sharing!


I have been thinking of adding a rear tank to my truck for the sole reason of adding weight to the rear. It’s really hard to get a truck balanced right. The best suspension in the world will ride like crap if 70% of the weight it up front

Interesting motovation. I’m reading this comment and looking at your signature and I’m intrigued. What do you use your truck for? It sounds cool.

What do you use your truck for?


It is my all purpose fun rig. Dirtbike hauler, wheeler, camping, cross country explorer.

To be fair, the Twin I-beam suspension, while robust as heck, is far from the best suspension in the world.

Seen the guys that found out that the Crown Vic front end literally bolts into place on the (I think) 1978-ish trucks? I believe there are a couple guys out there welding them into place in the later model trucks.
Right and Wrong are just words, what matters is what you do

Don’t get me wrong, that’s not what I was saying.

I have not seen a crown Vic conversion... what type of travel can you get out of it and how do you fit front axels in? Is there another spindle/knuckle combo that fits?
