HELP! Fuel pump/loom issues RB20DET A31
« on: November 27, 2009, 10:49:21 PM »
Hi all,


I have had issues with the wiring loom to the fuel pump in my A31 Cef running RB20DET (full conversion) with Walbro 255l fuel pump.

The connector between the loom and fuel pump wiring gets quite hot, and one of the wires (suspected a positive) gets quite warm as well.

Firstly we thought it might be not enough earth, so earthed it straight from the fuel pump to the chassis, but to no avail.

Any ideas?

Will get some pics over the weekend..


Cheers!

What size wire are you using and how long is the wire from the supply source?

Sounds like the connection itself is bad which will cause it to heat up.

You could try soldering it directly and remove the connector.
