Our Supercharged Monte Carlo Has Fuel Pressure Problems... We Upgrade the Pump AND Wires!
Last time out on the dyno Ralph decided to give us fuel pressure problems. The most likely culprit could be one of three things. The wiring going to the pump is too small/weak. The pump itself is too small...OR the pump sock is too close to the bottom of the tank! So we address all three in this video and confirm the results with a road test!

    If someone says they haven't ever messed up crimping wires, they are 100% lieing or have never done it lol

    The LEDs actually are flashing you can just see it through the camera because the frame rate slows down the frequency so that you can see the LED flashing. Constant LEDs have a steady light output while strobes emit bursts of it at regular intervals depending on the frequency they’re set at. Now back to the regularly scheduled programing.

    You guys are by far my favorite channel to watch. Most involved with helping others and showing us the day to day. It's truly appreciated!!

  • Stapleton42

    This video is a a reset back to how we used to do things. Over time I’ve thinned out videos to be more and more about the work…and it’s become less and less fun. You know what? There’s nothing wrong with having fun at the same time. So we’re gonna get back to that 💪🏻 Merch link: stapletonautoworks.com

      @nathan olmstead great tip

      nathan olmstead

      When I do wire joints, in offset the connections by an inch or so. Zero chance of joints contacting, and taping or looming the wires there isn't a big bulge

    Thumbs up for the"professional" wiring tip, I mean voltage drop over distance... . electric 101. But as far as fuel pump wiring, the crimp connectors are totally the way to go in the tank. They are on my daily right now

      I have a bad rc problem. I tig welded up an all metal axial Smt10 4 years ago. Castle 4500kv motor, mamba x esc, jconcepts tribute wheels, and renegade tires. Not the fastest, but I Also a traxxas slash 4x4 with a 1/8 scale setup for 6s. Its too fast. And a no prep drag rc nova. traxxas based but alot of aftermarket.....well everything. Spent way too much on rc hobby in the last 5 years. But being single father, me and my son gotta get out and have fun. And gets him started with mechanical objects. Get out that lmt and I would watch

    Pro tip for those wanting to use heat shrink tubes in a fuel tank get the clear ptfe stuff. It's expensive, but it will hold up to being submerged in gas and ethanol.

I work just like you two do, and I take pride in it and do the absolute best possible like you do.

    If you have to drain tanks often, get an external electric fuel pump, wire it to cigarette lighter or battery clips. Add a hose on the inlet to feed in the tank, and another to pump on destination container. If you’re snazzy you can add a ball valve to turn off/on flow.

  • cuebz

    Damn brotha that car is sounding amazing :D keep up the good work and glad to see you two are doing good!

  • Riffrebel

    Just watch the Video. Happy Belated Logan! I love All the innuendo’s, inside jokes, & the unedited content that y’all leave in that most channels wouldn’t because there afraid of not being Political Correct! The mistakes and learn as you go car/truck building is what gives the rest of us the confidence to go out and try it. If you have to modify it or redo it? That’s OK too. Keep the Great Content!

    Ah yes, the connector pull test! I need to redo my pump wiring in my tank. Whenever I first put the car together, it ran so I took it to get dyno tuned over an hour away. Wouldnt start when I got there. Get it home and it worked fine lol. Was losing connection somewhere after the connector on top of pump going inside but couldn't get it to replicate anymore. Hasn't done it since, so I haven't bothered 😂

    I have watched all your videos the very very last second. I love how you guys talk about what you're doing and how you're doing it and don't hide the fact that you are human and make mistakes.


      P.S. I almost forgot to wish her a happy birthday and I hope she gets her pancakes. 😁

    Power to the relay coil the other terminal goes to ground. The coil pulls in the load side of the relay sending current to the pump and using the larger AWG wires you should have no voltage drop at the pump. Just make sure your using the right size fuse on the power side of the relay. I believe it is ground side switched. Thanks for sharing catch you on the follow-up video 🇺🇸👍

    That frame looks great! I used the Por15 on my Tacoma frame. I sprayed the inside when it was new to make sure it wouldn’t rust. Some of the paint is still on my tool box. We used it at work on a water feed tank for a high pressure boiler. I just scraped the loose rust and it stayed rock hard. After it cured I was banging on the paint with a big ball peened hammer and it didn’t even scratch it. I used the silver color. Happy Birthday! Logan

      That’s awesome! Thanks Bruce 💪🏻

    Just realized that I found your channel because I was looking for a Monte Carlo build in a stock car style. Love the Mr. Goodwrench scheme. I too am planning black wheels, but want Goodyear Eagle lettering, if that's possible in a street legal tire. Gotta have the same side exhaust too. Crate na engine + Tremec, 5-point, 9 in rear and more. Great build and channel. You've got a an old soul like my oldest. My wife would approve - as would our grandkids 😯

    Happy Birthday Logan !!! The reason the camera looks like it's flashing in the camera screen is due to the frequency (Hz) of the camera screen and the light are either very close, or very far apart. Or, like polarization is 90° off. Like polarized sunglasses and LCD screens. I believe it's one of those reasons. I could be wrong though.
