Credit your tech editor with being a parts hoarder and finding one of the now-defunct Fox Body Fuel Injection’s stainless-steel ’79-’93 Mustang fuel-pump brackets sitting on a shelf in his garage. The bracket (on the left) is a drop-in replacement for the stock piece, and features AN -6 fittings on its 3⁄8-inch feed and return hard lines. The ’79-’93-inch OEM pump cradle uses a 5⁄16-inch feed line and only a 1/4-inch return. For high- volume pumps such as the Stealth, the small- diameter return tube is actually a bit too restrictive. When larger injectors are used, the restriction creates a high-pressure condition (more than 100 psi) that is beyond the regulator’s ability to calm down. For engines like our Clevor, which uses 80-lb/hr squirters from Ford Racing Performance Parts, we strongly recommend using a ’94-’95 Mustang fuel-pump bracket, which has a 3⁄8-inch pickup, and modifying the return side so that it is bigger than 1/4-inch.
