Hi i had much the same problem my had been fitted with a Facet pump . This was noisy and also these pumps were designed to push not lift, if you leave them in the original possie they will tend to cavitate and not draw. I did the same and fitted the pump to the rear but added an in line filter. These pumps come with a set of insulaters fitted. I also fitted a switch so that i can turn the pump off if i an working on the electrics , saves power.

I've always found that the ticking was useful to tell you when your tank was finally empty!

How about fitting a PRV and a return pipe so you get cool fuel at the carburettor Charles?

Have you ever measured the temperature of the petrol in the float chamber after the engine's been working?

OK what was the temperature of the fuel in the carburettor after the engine was hot?

So high it made me suspect a false reading.Stat top read around 85.We have an 88C stat.It was warm/hot to my hand, on a sunny 20C+ day, so probably between 40 and 45C.Infra red thermometer read nearly 60.

Do you have a heat sheilas below the carburettor?

I certainly do not have any hot Australian ladies of ill-repute near the carburetor Sir.What sort of chap do you take me for?No heat shield either.The valve body on the pump was also hotter than ambient.As was the inbound fuel pipe..
