Thanks for the info...Much appreciated! I can understand the reasoning/logic of the pump's control circuit.If I understand correctly, the fuel pump relay is "on" when the ignition turn on, only for a few seconds, then it turns off. This builds enough pressure to start then engine but won't pump it all over the pavement if a fuel line is broken.
I think the starter solenoid might also energize the fuel pump.
After that the oil pressure switch powers the fuel pump. If oil pressure drops "too low" the engine fuel is cut.
I'm not sure if that's exactly how it works, it's only my basic understanding (which is quite possibly wrong).
This is what I've done... disconnected the hose and quickly connected a different hose to it that runs to a fuel tank. Just make sure there are no bends or it'll come back up the hose of course.Nope I just did it the hard way….. lifted tank up and disconnected hose there…. Yeah it was a lot of fun trying not to get the gas everywhere…. 😂
